Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

Rocking chairs in Dallas

I flew from London to San Diego in California recently, and stopped off in Dallas airport en route. It came as quite a surprise to me as a Londoner to find rocking chairs in the departure lounge. The contrast between this very traditional form of seating, which in the UK we associate with old people and knitting, and its contemporary environment, was striking. The ‘rockers’ were mostly business people catching up on emails. All really rather wonderful, I thought.

I am linking this post to WordPress’s Weekly Photo Challenge on the theme of Contrasts.
