Look closely and you can tell that this is an old rattan chair.
Look closer and you can see that the rattan has frayed, especially at the seat. Rain or shine, this old chair has been faithfully serving my family for years.
I wonder how many people has sat on this chair. Did they sit with crossed legs, folded legs, or with both legs on the ground. Did any naughty kid jump on it before? Did anyone use it as a leg rest instead?
It’s an odd feeling but I find myself pitying this particular chair. I thought I’d capture it in all its beauty before it gets abandoned.
