Cee invited us to play musical chairs for her Fun Foto Challenge last week. I’m a bit late to the party but here are a few images that I thought I’d share. Whenever we take a tour of interesting old houses I like to look at the furniture in terms of groupings when I take pictures rather than viewing the room as a whole. Chairs very often play an important part in these sets. There were plenty of chairs at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville and one impressive pipe organ in the Grand Banquet Hall to help supply the music.
I don’t know if they ever played musical chairs at the Cuneo Mansion in Vernon Hills but there were some nice chairs and a beautiful Steinway piano if ever they felt like getting in the party mood.
Personally I dreaded being forced to play musical chairs at kids parties. I was an only child and probably because of that, I never felt comfortable around other children. Parties, I suppose, were something that my parents naturally thought I would enjoy but they only made me cringe and playing musical chairs was a nightmare. These days I love sitting in chairs and listening to music.
More chairs, this time at the Taylor House in Freeport, Illinois, and two musical instruments for the price of one, a piano and flute, also at the Taylor House. For more on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge go to https://ceenphotography.com/2016/11/29/cees-fun-foto-challenge-musical-chairs/
