The pause that refreshes
Pompano Beach, Florida, January 2007 [Click to enlarge the droplets of condensation]
Ronnie B's is a 50s-style diner that sits barely a block away from the end of the runway of the local airport. Stepping into it is like going back in time. While we waited for our meal to arrive, I snapped away quietly, trying to capture the essence of a place that usually exists only in our imagination.
I'll post more images from this experience in a future blog entry. For now, I wanted to leave you with this iconic image of American history. On the surface, it represents sugared water. Beneath it, however, it evokes memories of times distantly removed, of lives we once lived.
That, and the color, shape and surfacing of this image were really friendly to my eye. Hope you like it, too.
Your turn: Times of innocence. Please discuss.
