Abandoned Restaurant

Given some of the comments from my last post, I thought it would be interesting to show a little more work from the abandoned restaurant that started this new project. Maybe some of these images can give you more information to create your own story about this place. Why does this restaurant sit empty? Who were the people running this business. Where are they now? What kind of food did they serve?

Clearly, this door has not been opened in some time yet the screen door hangs open as if waiting for the next person to enter. I wish I would have tried to open that door.

A child's bike was left behind. Why? Does someone still play with it?

An advertisement for the Eagles Mere Chamber Music Concert sits in the window. Someone took the time to organize the pine cones and position the flower on this shelf. Was it the owner of the bike?

Pennants still hang and the welcome sign is still out. What happened here? Is this an indicator of our current economy or was it something else? What do you think?
