There you have it, several definitions of repose. I envision images of people at rest and, of course, we'll need cats and dogs at rest. I can see objects at rest, chopsticks on their rest and engines at idle. How about a city or country landscape at rest in the early morning fog before the hustle of the day. It's wide open, let your imagination take you to a peaceful place and capture the image.
