This picture shows us once again: the beautiful plastic chair is used everywhere. Even in such great hights.
This is from Abetifi –
in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Abetifi is the highest habitable place in Ghana and I was at the right place at right time to take this shot after a marriage ceremony. Abetifi is a very nice place to be with a great weather.

Hi Henning, these are some chairs and how they are used in Kuwait. One is at the Garage where my car is getting its maintenance – the oil films shows on the chairs – the other one at the construction site and partly repaired. The scaffolding around the chairs is still impressing me even I am such a long time here in the Middle East.
The aftermath of the Deutsche Welle feature still brings waves of gorgeous plastic chair submissions. And a) I still have a lot of manual work to do with them b) I am quiet busy with family and job duties in the moment and c) don’t want to fire away all at once so that each picture gets the top spot for a while.
So don’t stop submitting and don’t get concerned or angry if it takes a while. Every chair will get its place on the map eventually. Like this great one from F. Fraedrich, a German engineer living in Saudia Arabia:
Here is my share to your world wide collection. Especially for the picture taking I washed them properly. They get dusty very quickly as the nearby desert (and the Sahara on the other side of the Red Sea) is present all the time.
Further on the don’t last long as sommer heat brittles the plastic a lot.
One has to be carefully taking palce on them. Shurely after 5 years latest. So one always have be aware of breaking in with it.
