The Dentist's Chair

I stumbled across this chair last night.

I had to do a little digital editing to get it the way I remember it from childhood.

I was just at the dentist today...my dentist's chair was not nearly as funky or as much fun.

Sorry to hear you were at the dentist and that it wasn't as much fun. Personally, I find my photo a little unsettling. :)

Oh Erik your memories must be much like mine.

Now just add a wicked evil looking mad dentist and the picture will be absolutely perfect!!:-)

ooo yes. it still kind of looks like that to me. my dentist just got these new x ray things to bite on. they're nice and sharp and they want you to bite hard... ick.

Shinade,

Sorry to hear it. I hope dentistry is gentler on children in today's world. I still cringe just looking at the chair.

Beat Black,

I have always wondered why dentistry has not found a better way of filming the mouth. The film inserts seem to get bigger and sharper each year.

I see I'm not the only one who had a bad trip on "Happy Gas" as a child (not that I let it stop me - I've never had dental work without it!)

Never had a bad trip on laughing gas, but had many bad trips to the chair. :)

You're pictures or so enthralling, haunting, and beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
