Northside Cafe

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 October 2009 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This cafe has been in existence on the town square in Winterset, IA since 1876. It is one of the places in the The Bridges of Madison County movie. I had a tasty lunch there.

Part of the Bridges of Madison County series.

Always clean and sharp images, Steve, very good.
I like this composition and framing. The beautiful girl puts a warm note in these cool elements.
The colored time calls our attention: am? pm? I prefer the late night version :)
