The Hat At Dusk

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 18mm ISO 1250 1/100 f/16 Lr4

Here is another outpost of The Hat (my last Hat post), this one is located on old Route 66 in Glendora, California.  I was out in the parking lot and on the sidewalk capturing images while Judy was inside, getting us a grilled cheese sandwich.  The folks inside were apparently mystified why some guy would be outside taking photos of their restaurant.  Easy answer: The Hat is an iconic roadside eatery with great graphics, and we dig their menu of foods that our medical practioners would tell us to avoid.

  1. Sharp looking eatery. I like the way you’ve processed this. That checkered pattern adds a lot to the scene.
    We don’t have any of these back east but I’m always up for a good pastrami sandwich. 🙂

    • Thanks, Jimi. If you ever make it out this way, I’ll buy you a pastrami sandwich.

    If nothing else I would head right down to the Hat and see about trading a nice big print of this for some vittles! Great shot. The composition and just the acute feeling of nostalgia it evokes is very powerful. Something like this would be used in a Hollywood production by a master cinematographer.

    • Thanks, Stanley, so you think I could get a couple of pastrami sandwiches and some fries for this picture, or do you think I should hold out for the addition of some chili dogs and onion rings too?
