Kansas City, Missouri
Gee you'd think they could make it a little more appealing.

I really like all the power lines in this capture. I'm guessing this place still does business. Never been able to figure out who they think they're fooling when they build one of those awning type things to make the place look bigger:-)

@sherri: it's never open when i'm around, but i think it's still in business. i'm more puzzled by the name. i can't image there's a golf couse within ten miles of this place...
The play of light and shadow is as always wonderful. The building looks somehow abandoned, because there are no passers-by and no cars. Nevertheless I like this chilly atmosphere. Wonderful captured.

another gem. do you ever have to wait long for people to pass? or do you shoot early morning / late evening when there's less folk about?

@RHYS: thanks rhys. i almost never have to wait. i mostly shoot on saturday afternoons and sundays. most of the places i go are practically abandoned at these times.
Do people go to this place for a night out? It could be the most happening place on Earth, but it looks ghostly in your photograph.

@cat: cat, i wish i could tell you. i've never been inside, and don't know of anyone who has!
I think it's interesting how the cornice (overhang) looks added after the fact. They must be mostly concerned with how the place looks on the inside. It is strangely stark and unappealing except for the golf appeal. Nice shot.

very nice framing

I suspect that the only golf involved here may be a passing reference as to the particular lie on 17 in regard to some long past round. Followed by ordering another round. Great shot Grant! You continue to keep the mystery alive each day!

@Bill: i'm thinking you're exactly right.
i also think that awning looks very baroque, or maybe it was meant for hiding an old kind of roof .
I like your shadows here Grant!

I love the sign :)
Again, you are so strong with the lines in your shots, this one is no exception.

I cannot help but think of the movie caddyshack which I still find so amusing, and this bar would have fit into the movie well, another cool capture, lovely light and shadows again

Wonderful "as-it-is" shot. Fine composition and especially structure. Well done. bye.

@Alphons: thanks alphons
Pub & Deli.... I imagine it to be a bit dark inside. Cool shot though Grant, excellent light as usual.

@Observing: thanks mike. i bet you're right about the inside of this place.
Where's Chevy Chase? Great image, Grant. I'm looking at the comments and scratching my head as well. Looks as though someone seriously overshot the nineteenth hole!

@Stephen Phillips: exactly!
Wonderful glare of light on the building and love the foreground shadow and as usual the emptiness...

I'm looking at this and thinking it looks like the kind of place Dirty Mary and Crazy Lady hid out in from the cops, but that may just be because I was watching Death Proof over the weekend.

@Twelvebit: i haven't seen it. i have a feeling the cops might know to check in this sort of place regularly though :)
That should have been Dirty Mary and Crazy LARRY by the way --not Lady.

@Twelvebit: i liked it better the first way
