    Lucille, is this a functional dinner? I love the irony in the door's sign. Where is this? What lens did you use?

    Every time I stumble upon your threads, I feel we are kindred spirits relative to what we would shoot. That however is easier for you, since I live where the sky is seldom blue and the horizon is the top of the corn stalks.

    I had planned to travel the "Mother Road"this summer but the extreme temperature nationwide made me think that would be folly.

    This diner isn't functional, I should have gotten some shots of the inside through the glass, it was rather dusty and dirty, but it was still setup seemingly to open and serve, as if somebody just locked the doors one day, and never opened again.

    the lens used was one of the finest for m4/3rds, the Panny 14mm f/2.5.

    I shot this the same day I shot the Redtop Diner, the top of a corn stalk in New Mexico.
