Blue Plate Special: the Proud Women of USA Diners and their Food

Jerard here from Chase’s crew. I love a good road trip. There’s nothing like the freedom and discovery of hitting the road with no real destination, no particular schedule and nothing but miles as your mission. I’ve driven the blue highways across the whole of America almost twenty times. Four times on a motorcycle. In all of those miles, there are some memories that fade into the blur of asphalt and double-yellow lines. But there other things that jump out with precise clarity. For whatever reason, food and the people who serve the food, are often among these memories. Places like the Hogs Breath Saloon, a watering hole somewhere between Kansas and Colorado. “Hog’s Breath is better than no breath!” BBQ beef on a kaiser and I can remember the way the waitress chewed her gum.

Swiss photographer Stephen Shaher took a massive road trip across America and created a fun project out of diner food and the characters who served it. The images feel real. You can smell the food and hear the voices of these waitresses. Design You Trust featured the work a while back (with the names and food order explained to boot) and while I dont think that Food&Wine magazine is going to be calling for any food photography from this project, the personality that comes through in these pairings of server and plates of diner cuisine is palpable. It makes me want to head back out on the road and find some hidden gems of Americana. Click through the tabs above to see Shaher’s series from his 2004 journey across the USA.

Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be much more helpful than ever before.|

Thanks to its high pixel resolution, it is capable
of taking high quality still images with the minimum of fuss due to
features such as touch focus, autofocus and face & smile
detection. Both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and i – Phone 6
offer onboard memory options starting at 16 GB, but you can insert
up to a 64 GB micro – SD card into a Galaxy S4, adding more room for your videos and pictures.
While the rest of the smartphones on this list run on Android,
the i – Phone runs on i – OS.

Be thankful for this reason post, I’m a big fan of the web site should go on updated.

One other important issue is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance with regard to pensioners is something that is important to really consider. The mature you are, a lot more at risk you might be for having something undesirable happen to you while in most foreign countries.
