Hunting Lodge

A couple of months ago we were out for a walk locally and I took this photo through the window of a hunting lodge. At the time I was struck, as I often am at these places, by the contrast between the (assumed) wealth of those who use it and the plain and very functional interior. The occasional use shows in the dust and webs on the table. The scene speaks to me of a past that remains with us.

I find this a slightly strange image as I like it, but wonder what anyone else would see in it? Hence I thought I'd share it here with a couple of details.
