Plainview Diner

In 16-35mm f3.5, diners by Robert Lussier2 Comments

This is a shot from Memorial Day Weekend on Long Island. I went down there with a friend to run a Memorial Day road race. Of course I brought my camera, but it barely made it out of my bag. The weekend was a washout. The race was incredibly cold and wet — although very …

Finding Nemo’s

We were driving to Bass Harbor to check out the tiny lighthouse, the only one of the many lighthouses around Mt Desert Island, Maine that is accessible by land when we passed this cool little BBQ and beer (Brew-B-Q) joint. It was a must stop and shoot kind of place. Nemo’s was closed at the …

Chubby’s

I really love diners. There is nothing like eating a greasy big breakfast in a classic Worcester Dining Car restaurant. I also like photographing old abandoned buildings.

I’ve come to love HDR photography and gravitate towards subjects that lend themselves to the vibrant colors and rich detail that can be achieved through the process. Most of my HDR work has revolved around the mills of Lawrence, MA. That will continue. I don’t think I’ve scratched the surface. I have not been through …

After shooting at the Pacific Mill Diner, I decided to seek out other diners and other similarly challenging interiors to photograph and …

An HDR image

Finding time to get back into the mills for any length of time, or to get back to the church has been a challenge, but last week I did take the time to pop over to the Pacific Mill Diner to grab a couple of images. After looking at, some HDR images from other photographers …
