Fall Break is upon us and I am preparing to get away for a few days. So, this is just a quick upload from one of my 2013 Summer Archives. It was taken at the "Waterfront" shopping area in Homestead, now a suburb of Pittsburgh. We were told we had about a 45-minute wait to get into the restaurant of our choice. While the rest of the family and friends waited at our restaurant, I walked around and took this as an opportunity to take some photos.
This was an ideal setting to photograph the inside of a restaurant - the huge windows had been opened and I did not have to contend with any reflections.

Nice capture, but not the place I would be eating if I wanted to watch T.V. I would have stayed at home.
Have a nice break.

Well managed the view throughthe restaurant wide glassed window. No light reflection on the glass, and view indoors with people eat while watch the game on TV - is so American in style.
Fine colors managment, clarity and depth into the premises.
Have a nice weekend,

nice the snapshot from the interior of the restaurant with a lot of people to enjoy their presentation there during the happy hour.The red covers of the lamps make the image more effective.

This is a cosy looking scene with the guest of the Restaurant enjoying them self. The window provide a great frame within the frame, so composition wise top notch.
Something I will never understand about the american culture is as to why there has to be a TV on in every Restaurant? If I go to a Restaurant to have a good time with family or friends, I don't need a TV, if I want to watch TV I can stay home as well.
have a great weekend

this is a very interesting casual, documentary scene. There's superb depth and clarity and great natural colours. There are a lot of interesting elements and details that describe the setting and a part of the dining culture. I love studying the people and trying to infer as much as I can about them. The warm and bright colours are very eye-catching but effectively balanced by the well defined and also rich darker tones. It's very interesting to study the eloquent multiple frames around the people. Congratulations and thank you! Also, a big thank you for your considerate and warm words regarding my last photos!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Good timing to catch the bar with open windows, because soon the winter weather will prevent it.
Your view emphasizes the ever present multiple televisions, which I think are too frequent in our lounges. I like for example Deutschland where the restaurant lounges encourage conversation and sharing a table rather than the blare of tv's and constant commercials.

i think you have made use of the spare time productively, this place is a good source of photographic subjects. A nicely cropped full of colours with good mixed of lighting, hive of activity inside and the immaculate detail. A lovely glimpse into street life with the stunning red clearly separate the setting, Well done.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the inside of restaurant and many customers taking a food. It seems to the restauranys with a good interior and blooming. And, it's also interesting in red light instruments and TV setting on wall.

Nice daily life shot of the restaurant . Nice and sharp and the colour of those lampshades are so vivid. Americans really love their sports, as can be seen by the the four large screen tv's above the bar.
