Did you shoo everyone away, or what? I bet the food there is spectacular. We have several diners left in Pittsburgh, and one of them makes the best fried balony sandwiches. Oh my, it's a heart stopper, but sooooooo good.

I just love your treatment on this.

LOVE this one, Terry! Great HDR work and terrific story-telling composition. Was this serendipitous (which I doubt) or how on earth did you get just one person dining? Anyway, marvelous work!

Thanks, everyone!! The diner was empty except for this one lone diner when my friend and I went in for a very late lunch. It was sort of in-between the busy hours and that's how I was lucky enough to have the place mostly to myself to take a few pictures. By the time we left, there were several more diners in the place.
