Luna at Cobb’s Hill and Washington Grove

Luna at Cobb’s Hill Reservoir in Rochester, Monroe County, New York. This was a really interesting location for a photo shoot. Washington Grove (next to the reservoir) is 100-acres of old growth forest in the heart of the city, and graffiti artists routinely tag these large metal cisterns nearby. This beautiful and talented model helped me capture what I think is my best photo set yet. I decided to get a little more artistic in post.

Danny’s Diner

Danny’s Diner, at 151 Main Street in Binghamton, New York, is a classic Sterling model from 1939. According to Roadfood.com, “Danny’s is very popular today, due in large part, we’re sure, to the efforts of owner Pam, whose personality is a perfect complement to Danny’s. Danny and Pam were once married, and when that marriage ended, Danny’s became Pam’s (in ownership, if not in name).” Guess she didn’t want to take down this glorious sign!

Mr. Bill’s Car Hop

Mr Bill’s Car Hop Restaurant at 1720 U.S. Route 9 in South Glens Falls, New York. In 2012, a vandal went on a rampage through Mr Bill’s, causing $20,000 in damage. Incredibly, the community rallied around the restaurant and helped clean it up. William (Bill) Smith argued against jail time for the perpetrator, instead wanting the young man to get help for his drug problem. What a guy!
