I shot these in the morning, with the Canon AE-1, 28mm FD, and Kodak Ektar. It was about 9:30, and “the golden hour” was already fading away, to harsh bluish tones. Ektar proved to be the ideal film for the conditions. And the subject. The colors of the 5 & Diner, now closed, were perfect for the film as well. I’d love to come back to this site, and maybe photograph it with patrons, if it does indeed ever reopen.
Another opportunity here may be to go even wider, with a 24mm. But for these shots, 24mm worked out so nicely.
I love wide-angle shots that take advantage of shallow depth of field. The example below is quite illustrative of this.
The Five & Diner is much too nice of a new school diner concept to remain closed. Here’s hoping it comes back to life soon.
