RoadKill Cafe

I like to have my wife on my vacations… not only for many other obvious reasons, but she likes to do some research about our destinations and always suggests places we should stop and see. Like in this case I’d probably never stop at the Roadkill Café if it was not for her. She knew about this place and as we took historic HW66 drive we found this place to have lunch. Their bison burger sucked big time, not something I would order again if I ever had a chance to eat there, but the decorations of this place compensated for not so tasty burger. Check it for your self, what was in front of us during our lunch.

Oh, and as for the folks there, it is not us. I think they were Europeans, travel bloggers or something like that, as they spent entire time looking at their photos and doing something with them. I guessed that she was Czech, and guy looked like our friend Patrick who is Lebanese, but this one probably not. But who really cares.

    This is beautiful, Dmitrii! Was it from a single RAW exposure?
    I have a friend who’s always haunted by scenes like this in her dreams 😀

      Hi Ankur, yes, this is a single RAW. I usually try it and put through Photomatix, with single shot it is hit and miss doing HDR. In this instance I liked how it looked better than if I did straight process. I can see that someone might have nightmares about things like this, does no bather me at all 🙂

    There’s a very beautiful historic garden in England which has a crazy tea house packed on every wall with shot animals – everything from poor turtles to tigers. The moral dilemma was – should we show our respect for wildlife by not going there or should we embrace the fact that this was just some legacy from their mad relations? The decider was the really outstanding scones and cream for which I would forego most of my principles.

    It appears you visited all the important places in Northern Arizona! It’s always nice to see other people enjoying the sights in my home state.

    We have a place in Nebraska that has even more road kill than that! 🙂 http://olesbiggame.com/
    You have to see it to believe it. Lots of dead critters.

  6. Too bad about the burger, great photo though!

  7. the HDR processing is spot on – good job 🙂 Having the people there is a nice touch. The fact they are there with all their high tech stuff but totally ignoring the incredible ‘traditional’ scene around them gives the image an intriguing quirkiness.

    Hahaha… yes, I’ve had friends come over and mention how “barbaric” it seems… LOL Just a way of life to many of us here. It’s a great blend current life with what some think of “the past”. Great picture!

  9. I hope for you the burger wasn’t made up of roadkill!

    The place looks like something you should have been once, just once! 😉

    Nice! I have been meaning to get Photomatix and run some of my RAWs through it. You’ve inspired me, I’m going to do it. Great light in this shot.

    Living in Australia, when it comes to roadkill, I picture kangaroos so it seemed a bit out there seeing all the antlers on the wall.Looked like the scene out of a movie.
