It Withstands the Cold!

Route 66 Restaurant, Bar Harbor, Maine

As part of the photography workshop I took in October, we visited the Route 66 Restaurant. The restaurant was decorated with memorabilia on the walls, hanging from the ceiling and everywhere else you looked. The owner was nice enough to allow the 20 or so photographers to have the run of the place as long as we came for dinner later in the evening. After eating dinner, we swarmed everywhere with tripods. It was quite the scene as there were still a few customers left and the waitresses were trying to serve them. I felt pretty bad for them as they dodged photographers wherever they went. Anyway, this is a shot of an old and rusty motor oil can that was on the shelf above our booth. It was a relatively small place and setting up for shots was almost comical. Regardless, it was a fun night of shooting.
