World’s first monument for the plastic chair / cc-by-4.0 Reinis

Hi! This is a little bit different, because this plastic chair ain’t made from plastic, but from bronze. But it’s definitely the first monument for a plastic chair in the World!

The guy sitting there is Ēvalds Valters, a very famous Latvian actor who lived 100 years (1894-1994).

Ba`Adrie, Ninawa, Iraq

Not your everyday travel location. Stephan Pramme went on a field trip to Kurdistan/Iraq with a group studying the genocide of the Yazides by the IS. He took some great pictures. This one caught my interest.

The guy was a bit confused when I ordered some cold beers but than I recognized: I’m standing in front of a patrol station. #kurdistan #iraq

Smolensk Oblast, Russia

Most plastic chair pictures I get show pretty lonely chairs. Pretty but lonely. These chairs are not only together with a bunch of others in all kinds of different colors. But all seats are taken. Nice change. :)

This picture was taken at an orphanage in Pruki, Russia in the Smolensk oblast Summer 2011. We were celebrating “friend’s day!”
