The Chair
By Edward Washington II

The Chair
Mountain View is seen as a dangerous or temporary place to live. Some don't believe in preserving what isn't really theirs, but some people take care of what they have, no matter how much or little. Maybe one can't afford to get out and live better, so they make do with what they have. In this photo I see someone who is at peace with their surroundings, but can't afford the nice porch or deck with the rocking chair. To them those broken down chairs are just as good, because it's home. It may be all they know. This is a common theme in Mountain View, and I see it when I walk these streets I was once fearful of. Now I realize they are just like me. They want to live a little bit better.
