9-5-09

I wanted a photo of Theo's. We used to go there on our way to the horse pasture when we were in high school (80's). Theo's has been around since the 50's, so my grandparents and parents also ate at this "hamburger joint." It's the kind of place where you pull up front under the awning, and the waitress comes to get your order at your car.

When I drove around back to get a better shot of the sign, I saw this super cool truck. It's Theo's truck. I went inside to let them know that I wasn't a weirdo. I just wanted to take some pictures. Theo was at the grill still cooking the burgers after all these years. (Maybe it's Theo Jr.?)

Here is a before and after:



Here is the black and white with some texture and some cloning:



I'm going to give Theo an 8x10. Maybe he'll hang it on his wall.

I'm sure Theo will appreciate that photo...and it would be cool if he hung in on their wall!! Great "after" photo...much better with the busy stuff cloned out.

What a great capture, chances are on another day the truck wouldn't be in that perfect spot.. Very cool!

Hooray! You're comment space is working! WOOT! WOOT! If you do a search on 2peas, someone has a link to the code that you embed into your blog layout. I have mixed feelings about using. . . I mean, who wants to steal photos of my ugly tomatoes????? And I like seeing exif data. . . .I like your perspective in your photography, by the way. . . and have reallly noticed that over the last several days that you've been posting at POTD. Today, your first photo isn't showing up for me, though :( And welcome to POTD!

Very cool shot! I can't see the before, but the after is really nice! :)

Wow! Thanks for all the comments y'all! I fixed the first picture...or actually replaced it with a before and after. Since my account at flickr is the free one, I'm trying to conserve the space.
