Great shot, Matt. Or should I say - 'great eye' - because (I believe) it is the eye - and the mind - and in some way the photographer's (yours) ability to previsualize an image - which all go into this photograph.

Once upon a time, not that long ago - maybe 4 or 5 years ago, as I recall - this diner, in a small Oregon town that is predominantly either blue-collar or agricultural or both - was packed, with customers, and their parked cars, all busily chowing down at the lunch hour.
Now it's empty. Deserted. Searching for a new owner---

Or maybe a miracle. Such is 'progress' in our civilized landscapes.
