One of our Facebook fans, La Duchesse et le Crapeaud, pointed me to the Hasard Cheratte Chair.
Hasard Cheratte is a Belgian Coal mine which closed in 1977. Since then it is a fave exploration object for urban explorers and photographers whose subject is abandoned places. A whole new category opens up for Chair Blog, the abandoned chair…
This chair was used to operate winches for a heavy piece of a crane or a lift in the mine.

The Melancholy of Objects is a series of portraits of the objects photographer Guy Batey found lost or discarded on the streets of Southwark in South-East London. We, of course, are particularly interested in his “Blue Chair” piece pictured above.
