hello, i'm from belfium and i'm studying law. I don't know if you are aware of this fact : if a place (house, building, land...) is left untouched for 30 years, even if someone owns it you can have it. All you have to do is fill a paper .
I think...staging for a photoshoot previously to you photographing this shot? (looking at previous comments) Either way, it's a beautiful and gorgeous shot. It really picks the brain at what could have happened here.
Darn. That would aggravate me a little, only because of what I feel may have been "lost" in staging. However, this is still a great photo. I sort of like the colors of the room...and style of the table set. <3
The eeriest part of this is it's as if the owners just went out to the store. The coats on the rack don't even look dusty.. yet the carpet is all dirty and old. Also, that is a great dining set! Strangely, it doesn't look that dusty either.. not compared to the carpet. These pictures of abandoned places are always somber yet so interesting

I really like this. It's blatantly obvious that it's dipilidated and empty, but at the same time it looks homey and lived-in. The color really brings out the livlieness of this photograph. It makes you wonder what happened here. Why they left their jackets and hats and why the one chair is further out than the other three. I'm wondering, do you have any idea what happened? This is quite bizzarre.
Well, I seriously doubt that the scene on my photo shows the reality. There were several photographers in this house before, the whole thing looked very staged to me. Still, in this case it made a good scene for a photograph (but in most cases, staging ruins a shot)
