Philip in the Diner - Philadelphia 1978
Taking photographs of your friends means that you can often get a truly relaxed photo, they trust you and it's all in the eyes, if the eyes are true and real then the photo looks so much natural.
I went all over the world with Thin Lizzy, including numerous American Tours, this photo was taken in Philadelphia one Sunday afternoon, we had a day off and Philip and I went for looking for a place to have breakfast.
This diner sums up that era of Americana for me, breakfast were always good in these places, a long way from a traditional English Breakfast but still delicious with bacon, eggs, home fries and toast made from any kind of bread you wanted.
With a juke box control on the counter these diners were the perfect place to hang out for a while, feed the juke box with a bunch of quarters and you could listen to all your favourite singles.
Sadly there are only a few of these diners left now, but William's Famous Bar B Q in Philadelphia is one I will always remember.
