[Kings Waffle] Chapter 8: It's Been a Minute


After years of sitting at the low counter and the “stoop” (curb) out front with everyone, I started writing about Waffle House, our Waffle House. At the time, I needed that specific Waffle House more than ever. Just as quickly as the words and photographs started coming together, though, they stopped. Life often pulls people in different directions, a typical occurrence with no regard to personal connection. You may have known someone for a lifetime, a few years, or only through the occasional shared cigarette in the parking lot, but it doesn’t really matter—no matter how good your intentions or effort may be, time is always pulling.

The Revolving Restaurant of Covington


In 2009, archaeologists believed they had uncovered evidence of the first revolving restaurant. If their research was correct, Emperor Nero had one in his Palatine Hill Palace around 54-68 AD—quite awhile before the idea of spinning dining rooms spread across the United States (and Cincinnati) in the mid-20th Century.

Postcards


I don’t know how best to describe my relationship with or affinity for postcards. On one hand, they’re a unique gesture—an expressive medium that occasionally exemplifies good photography. On the other, they’re simply a means of communicating sentiment. They also serve as historic footnotes—representations of certain places, documentation of when those locales were held dear/promoted, how a physical space appeared at a certain time.
