Once a month I meet up with two good friends of mine for coffee. We always meet at the same diner, same time and sit in the same section. Michael is a fellow Irishman and an incredibly talented stage actor while Jeff is what I would consider one of the funniest comics I’ve ever met. I love our coffee meet-ups, we talk about anything and everything. As the youngest and least experienced I’ve learned a lot from them both over the years. I’m very lucky.
The last time we met up I noticed a photographer outside the diner taking photographs. He was there for the entire evening but I paid him little notice. Tonight while having coffee the same photographer approached our table upon recognizing us. He showed us the below photograph which is part of a project called Diner on The Edge of America. Kinda cool methinks. It was a very random and lovely end to our evening.
I love this kind of inside outside image that for me gives you the increased feeling of being there…it’s like the city is seeping into the diner…into the thoughts of the people inside…the city and the people are never separate not in New York…never in the Diner on the Edge of America – Jez Coulson.
Check out Jez Coulson’s website here for his photography.

Fortunate Mr Dempsey immortalised by the legend that is Jez, and the image certainly evokes the aroma of the diner and makes me want to cross the ocean to NYC. Wishing you a happy, safe and fruitful New Year.
