Awkward Seating Starring in #CBWC

#Any Kind of Seating

Cee’s Black and White Challenge invitation this week was to take pictures of any kind of seating.

Do you remember crawling over people to get to your seat in a theatre? I took this before the start of “Ka” in Las Vegas in February, 2020 when finding your seat in the dark when the show was two seconds from starting was awkward.

These beach chairs our son discarded at our house when he moved were awkward to use. You had to straddle the chair and drop into it. I demonstrated to one of our garage sale customers and he bought it. I guess he figured if I could get into it anyone could.

Now, if you want to experience awkward, imagine getting out of this seat after rowing all morning with your legs 90 degrees from your back. Mine didn’t work at all, and my friend Diane and her daughter had to roll me out of the kayak.

Sitting at my desk admitting that this was my first try at color popping is awkward. I used Photoshop Elements 15 – Guided. When I finished the hills, Diane’s hat, face, and arms were still tan. I used the lasso tool and added tons of adjustment layers to erase most of the offensive residual color after the pop. It was an awkward way to achieve the purpose, I’m sure.

I had nothing on these two dolls at the Best of the Valley Quilt Show. They look serene and cool in their deep turquoise pop of color, but deep inside I think their legs are all twisted into an awkward pretzel shape.

My third try using the pop feature was this wistful doll sitting awkwardly on her tiny chair with her tinier marionette.

So what’s your favorite seat or do you like to sit down? Join Cee’s Black and White Challenge and see what other folks are doing.

Here are a couple of examples besides Cee’s that inspired me to go beyond park benches.

    1. Thank you so much, sombergrays. All of the dolls at the show were handmade, and they were all stunning. Some people are amazingly talented. I just snapped the picture. I was proud of myself for learning a new skill, though. 🙂 Thanks for your comment. 🙂

        1. Thanks, Cee. Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as well. I made Vince lasagna, his favorite Thanksgiving treat. Then I put up my widget and wrote my next #CBWC post. 🙂


      1. We don’t actually do Thanksgiving in UK, since it’s celebrating your Independence from us 😂. Though I live in England, I am Scottish, so this week I was probably the only person in our sleepy English village thinking about St Andrew – patron saint of Scotland whose day on 30th November is widely celebrated in Scotland ( especially nowadays when Scottish Nationalists are seeking Scotland’s independence from UK. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

        1. LOL, actually it wasn’t independence we celebrated but thankfulness for living through the first year in a new land in 1607. We were English citizens for the next 170 years or so. I have some Scotch in me, too, but I’ve never done the DNA test to find out how much. Do you think they will gain independence, and if so, what affect might that have on both countries?

          1. After the shock of Brexit (from 1st January 2021), goodness knows how the UK, or any of its contituent nations will be affected. Worrying about COVID has knocked these grave concerns down the list to second place!

  1. Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
