Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

Cold Comfort

Cold Comfort

A cheaper storage option than the Big Yellow across the road 😦



  1. Funny! 🙂

  2. Comfy and alone. A peaceful comfort. 🙂

  3. Haha…love it! What a great idea!

  4. That’s really funny!

    If this once comfortable chair stays in its current location for very long, it will become a comfortable home for small critters… mice, roaches, etc. Great pic!

    maybe its the great escape lol from self storage sofa it hasnt made it lol aww bad joke good pic xxjen

  8. What some people won’t do to get hits on their blog! Seriously, best ‘comfort’ picture yet.

  9. Reminds me of the “Executive” seating out at the old Plough Lane Stadium! 🙂

    • Perhaps I should have dragged it up the A1000 to The Abrahams Stadium 😉 The officials and visitors seating is hard wooden benches! Always sad to see a famous old football ground or railway station disappear. Our near neighbours Hendon FC used to play at Claremont Road which is now in a bad state of disrepair awaiting redevelopment 😦 Thanks for popping by and commenting Patti 🙂

  10. Very good, but what a throwaway society we live in. Hope someone at least got a sit down!

    • Thanks Gilly – I find the ‘dump it’ approach a bit annoying, especially as the council recycling place is less than 1/2 a mile from here. Anyway, Transport for London must have removed it on a night time maintenance run, it was gone a few days later.

  11. The soundtrack to go with Cold Comfort… Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb? 🙂

  12. Great Shot,Totaly murder sofa kidding:)

  13. nice framing…this reminds me of one of the latest episodes of The Big Bang Theory. looks so inviting, but could be biting! (smile)

  14. 😀 fantastic response, Martin!
    (I wouldn’t sit on it…..)

  15. Hey it’s not that bad – a little clean up, maybe a new cushion…

    BTW – thanks for subscribing to my blog. Glad to have you along.

    • Np Donna, glad to follow the action.

      I bet the chair’s in a council depot somewhere now providing dozing accommodation for the workers 😉

  16. That is a vagabonds dream …. !!!!!
    Love it ….

    • Funny you should mention vagabonds Isadora – there is a small camp made by a ‘Gentleman of the Road’ in a copse on the Glebelands not very far from here 🙂

  17. Androgoth says:

    Yes that chair has most certainly seen
    some better days and evenings my friend 🙂

    Have a wicked Thursday now…

    LOL, too funny! Unfortunately, this is the kind of “comfort” this world often offers…
    Great photo–and story. 🙂

  19. Makes you wonder how things just get there….

    • It does… I don’t even know that it was left by someone passing on the A406 – it could equally have been dumped from a house on Pointalls Close. I just wish that people would dispose of things responsibly. Thanks for dropping in and commenting 🙂

  20. What a strange place to find a lounge chair. That is a comment sight here in some of the public housing estate areas. If they don’t have a wrecked car on the front lawn it’s a lounge chait instead, or a car seat..

  21. After a long walk, assuming I don’t have a car, this chair would be a great, comfortable relief to my aching legs and feet. Wonderful subject that brings out comfort in a very interesting way. Have a great day!

  22. cheap and looks real comfortable!

  23. There’s something vaguely “King of the Hill” about this photo.

  24. Great capture and find!!!

  25. I love coming across stuff that just seems strangely out of place!
    What a find (and capture), Martin!

  26. The photo is effortlessly funny. BWAHAHAHA
