Sip N' Soda


I made this image back in 2002 at the luncheonette in the village. The repetition of the stools and the man's legs interested me. I also liked the northern light filtering in the big windows. It is a selenium toned print. Memorial day was a busy one this year, six parades, two that we marched in and four that we stopped at to pay our respects to our veterans. I'll put together a slideshow in the next day or two for the town.

the light and the shoes on those feet at that angle and those ankles on those legs covered in those pants

His feet position doesn't look very comfortable! But yes, interesting image. :)

It's interesting the way he has placed his feet. Fun photo.

Oh I like the feet! What an unusual angle!

I'm such a fan of the sepias or black and white photos. Oh, and those stools are the best!

I love this photograph and your story. My father was a pharmacist so long ago when the drugstores had these old fashioned soda fountains and as a little girl I used to go there after school to have a root beer float. Brings back so many childhood memories. I'm your newest follower and enjoyed all of your photographs.
