Red Top Diner on Route 66, Edgewood, New Mexico

Mitchell Tillison

Albuquerque, United States

Artist's Description

This Valentine Diner was manufactured by the Arthur Valentine company and was once part of a chain of identically constructed, individually serialized diners that stretched across the United States and operated using the Valentine Lunch System. This diner is no longer in working condition, but a surprising number still are. Of those, some are still located on old Route 66.

Due to its location and orientation, it is impossible to get a shot of this diner that does not include power lines and other distractions. So, I did quite a bit of work to clone those out and put in a nice evening sky from Santa Fe.

Pentax K20D, 1/80 @ F8, ISO 200, 18mm
