Yo, I don't know how popular your tumblr is but seriously, it's the most aesthetically pleasing thing. Just seeing diners are just such a beautiful pieces of Americana which I spend too many nights and mornings in day to day and I like seeing the love of diners being spread. Keep on keeping on with your cool ass blog.
Gee whiz you just made our day! We’ve spent days & nights in diners as well, so we completely understand. Keep on spreading the diner love. <3
Everyone always has suggestions, but maybe listing the address of each establishment would be nice for those following your blog when they try finding the place.
Great idea! We’ll list the address on the archive page so you can play along at home. Thanks!
What was the worst/most challenging experience while shooting diners? Any diners that just didn't "get" what you are doing? What did you learn from the experience?
The most challenging aspect is communicating the project to the owners. Most are very familiar with the Internet, but for those who aren’t, explaining how the work is shared and how it benefits them often sounds like a terrible sales pitch.
However, the diners we’ve featured have been nothing but warm and friendly—sounds cliché, but it’s true. Diner owners are hard-working, so even when we show up unannounced, they still take care of us. We’ve met people who treated us as if we were their family. Honestly, if there’s one thing we didn’t expect when starting this project, it’s how friendly people would be. But that’s what keeps us going.
Oh my God, I love your blog! I'm Italian, your way to show all these places make me feel close to your country... I wish could travel so far just to see your world! So thanks for sharing! It makes me fly! :)
Wow! Love all the way from Italy… THAT is exciting.
If you ever make the journey to the NYC metro area, go to an all-night diner and get a burger, fries, and a milkshake. It’s the American way.
I love that this blog exists
Shucks! We love that people like you exist to share in our appreciation for breakfast food and retro decor.
Thanks for following!
(Wanna send us a love note? It is almost Valentine’s Day, after all…)
