An outtake from my shoot for the Diner challenge. I wasn't even going to enter this challenge, but when I saw this shot, I realized it would work just fine. Tried a new editing tool: posterize. Thought it added just the right amount of "memory".

Cool! Finished better than I expected. Thank you everyone, for taking a trip with me, and your great votes and comments.

Well I just voted about an hour ago so I didn't have a chance to comment on my favorites. Your photo was in my top 5. Congrats on being just shy of top ten.

THANK YOU for actually writing a memoir and then illustrating it with a photo. And it's a really nice photo with a great vintage feel, clearly connecting to the idea of an adult remembering childhood road trips. In fact, this is getting a 10 from me for both the memoir and the photo.

Perfect processing for this photo. The duo-tones really help meld the olod car with the old building.
