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. #10109935

Rona L. Schwarz 5/6/2012 8:45:10 PM

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! #10126958

Terry Cervi 5/8/2012 5:24:31 AM

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. #10128905

Patricia A. Casey 6/25/2012 8:29:14 AM

Wow, does this one take me back to the diner I went to in my youth....no longer there....in New York. Wonderful capture Terry.... #10199265
