I shot this image years ago on the porch of the Ocean House, a huge Victorian hotel in Watch Hill, RI. That particular Ocean House is gone now, torn down to the ground — and then completely rebuilt as though it had never disappeared! The new owner managed to reconstruct everything that had been there before, including this porch, an amazing feat of design and engineering.

I used a “warm” photographic paper to capture the softness of the light on this particular day. There’s a sort of haunting loneliness about those empty chairs, staring bleakly into the fog, as though they’ve been suddenly abandoned and they don’t know why.
