Recollections Transposed:

Observations written in my sketchbook: Two red chairs

A gray-haired man reads the newspaper alone in a crowded park

A woman looks out of the plane to see mountains for the first time 

Trash cans overflow next to a souvenir stand

Three teens smoke by the river; one stands slightly away from the other two 

Red chairs sit near a crowd of people. The crowd looks through the rungs of a fence at artists working

A phone number carved above a door lock

The carnival, the tent fully put-together, canvas removed, beams left, trash tumbles in the wind

The red chairs
