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.

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!”
