I like how you framed this, and as always, excellent lighting and tone. In my experience, the rougher a barbecue place looks, the better the food.

@Chris: i think you're right - but the absence of any cars in the parking lot seemed a bad sign...
Beautiful light and picture..!

It looks a rough and ready place, pigs snoot & ears mmmmm...! Great shot.

Do you think it's kosher ;)
Pig snoot...I love it. It reminds me of a trip to Colorado, where the restaurant served a breakfast dish called "Pigs in a Blanket". America rocks.

@cat: i would bet against it cat!
No need of a bulldog in front of this closed one ;-) May I order something here ? Yet, it's breakfast time in Paris, right now (no pig ears, thanks :(.... Great light & place, Grant ! :o)

@k@: not to worry - i'll have your pigs' ears on the next plane to paris.
Oh yuck, do people really eat those?

@lisa v: i don't even want to think about it lisa. i'm a very picky eater.
yes great b&w

Fun pic.... have pigs ever looked less appetizing? Those sausages on the left on bread look more like feet in sandals!
16 Dec 2008 12:39pm
@Stovepipe: i agree, and your comment about feet in sandals is hilariously accurate.
Great image , c'mon this is classic signpainting at it's best .

Wonderful shot, but if those pig bits are on the menu I'll pass on this place! Again, grat processing!

great shot, wonderful the contrast between the building and the sky from where appear these two trees
16 Dec 2008 2:50pm
Love the contrast between the white sign and the dark background. The sign is almost legendary..an absolute classic!!!
16 Dec 2008 4:09pm
A fine store front shot. I like the hand work on the sign. I'd love to try some of their ribs! :-)
16 Dec 2008 4:38pm
@don: thanks don. no snoot for you?
very nice framing
16 Dec 2008 6:18pm
Another very interesting shop, doesnt look to welcoming with the barred doors, but then again may not be my style I will pass on snoot and ears
16 Dec 2008 7:29pm
Nice street picture !
16 Dec 2008 7:54pm
Pig snouts and pig ears?? Fine is-as-it-is picture. Well seen and captured.
16 Dec 2008 8:41pm
So much to see here! Great found. I'd like to know if you used a red filter for this photo?
16 Dec 2008 9:44pm
@Lucca: thanks lucca. no filter, but i might have tweeked the contrast in ps.
agree with Lucca - this is a big image to digest. has me wondering what drew you in for it. will likely come back and look at it some more.
16 Dec 2008 10:35pm
@michele: michele, could anybody pass this place and not take a picture? ;-) i appreciate your comment.
Great shot Grant! But you know what.... I think I will go to Oklahoma Joes instead!
16 Dec 2008 11:27pm
@Bill: thanks bill (and i know what you mean... i'm thinking smoke stack, but it's the same idea...)
That pig schematic is awesome! I love pigears!
17 Dec 2008 12:30am
@Howard F.: seriously?
I'll bet that was some good eats in its day:-)

Nice blacktop splatter like grease spots from the BBQ place. Such a mixture of shapes and lines so well choreographed to create a terrific image.
17 Dec 2008 3:33pm
Nice composition. My dog likes pig ears. Not so sure that would bring me in though.
18 Dec 2008 11:21pm
@Twelvebit: that sounds like the perfect use for pig ears!
have come back to look at this four times now. you know i probably would have passed by it and not taken a photograph but the more i look at this image the more i see how truly funny and bizarre it is.
19 Dec 2008 3:49am
@michele: i'm flattered michele!
Looks like it might have been a tough capture, with bright midday light on white? You handled it well--and like you said before, how you could pass this and NOT take a shot? Too much great imagery going on. (And for the record: I'd eat there in a heartbeat!)
19 Dec 2008 11:10pm
@Kurt: you're a brave man!
Hello,i like this photo the contrast is very good.A bientôt.
