Even though grilled cheese sandwiches are off limits for me I've always loved this photo. Whenever I see poorly staged and taken food photos on the web I think of this photo, and the other photographs of meals in Uncommon Places- probably a rather unfair comparison as no blogger is frequenting diners with an 8 x 10. Totally commonplace, everything in this photo is not unique but when lit with such a soft glow the effect is rather soothing and comforting. This must be, in part, why I keep coming back to this image regardless of my allergies.
