A fun image of a favorite diner, located in Breezewood, Pennsylvania. A bit of a disclaimer … I grunged this baby up considerably .. the diner itself is quite clean and tidy. My apologies to the good ladies who work so hard there to keep it that way. Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens on January 22, 2012. HDR from a single, handheld image processed in Photomatix Pro, then much tinkering in Photoshop CS4. My thanks to Jerry Jones of ShadowHouse Creations for the textures.

    How lucky to have the place to yourself Lois. Did they have a Wurlitzer or Seeburg Wall-o-Matic tableside. This certainly was a time of many memories. I love the treatment you’ve given this image, keeping in line with the period…Jules…Favor and FIVE GOLD STARS

  • Hi Jules!!! No, those were gone, I’m sad to say!!! But on the walls are the most amazing pictures of old cars and so many things from the ‘50s. Fun place!!! So glad you enjoyed it .. and how right you are about having the place to myself!!! Doesn’t happen often!!! thanks for the fave and the stars … muchly appreciated!!!!
