    Love the strangely anachronistic look of the sattelite clinging to the building.

    what i like about this is the absence of any signs of life. kinda like how you feel now eh? ;-) get better soon mate.

    For some reason I've found shooting run down streets difficult. What looks to have a lot of character in person just translates to a boring empty street on film. But you've done a very nice job capturing that feeling her. (I think the B&W definitely helps).

    Canary is not attracting me in for steak or chops. Interesting contrast on the run down store with the satellite dish.

    As always, Miles, your toning is outstanding. Looks like one of those cool places to go for a burger and a beer.

    Great range of tones, and the run-down feel comes right through.

    I like all the signs/words in this shot! it's making me hungry ;)

    I believe this was shot digital, if so did you just use a polarising filter or did you add the vignetting on the upper part artificially ? The photo would look truly retro without the STOP sign and satelite dish :)

    Excellent b&w shot! I agree with n3on: If it weren't for the sign and the satellite dish this would look very timeless. And no, nothing here makes me hungry ;-)...

    Just the sort of place to take a date.

    Those steaks and chops must be less than substantial. They're not the biggest of birds ;o) Stunning B&W.

    Lovely shot and some great tone there.

    great shot...lots of detail to take in. not really a "small town corner eatery" if I've recognized this place correctly, and I think i have! probably not somewhere you'd want to be after dark...

    Great black and whites you produce.

    Awesome tonality here, Miles. I'm not 100% sure about the vignetting, though. I actually just had the Canary on my blog a couple of weeks ago. It's kind of hard <i>not</i> to photograph it.

  • Bella

    This looks so familiar. Is this just down the street from the distillery district?
    Fantastic tonal range with the b&w!

    Again, you really get amazing tonal balance in your B&Ws! Regardless of the modern accoutrements, the photo has a very timeless feel to it.
