I've always loved this simple grayscale shot of a small dining room table and chairs my family once owned, although I've rarely ever shown it to anyone since shooting in February of 2004.
Taken in an open area that we used as our dining room in the house we rented at the time, this shot always appealed to me not only for the subject matter but for the soft quality of the light within the scene. My available light here was late afternoon sunlight shining through a living room window to the right (not visible), partially diffused by a thin white curtain, and to a lesser degree, the floor lamp visible in the corner.
It was this light that, to me, made the whole scene appear peaceful, quiet and relaxed. If I'd tried to shoot this with a flash it would have appeared totally different, and would have ruined the tranquil mood I was trying to record.
Taken with my old Canon T60 with Kodak T100 CN black and white film.
