Leon’s Frozen Custard in Oshkosh

Leon's-Frozen-Custard_122318_4741I had a wonderful opportunity early on Sunday morning to create a few images using my miniature classic cars in front of Leon’s Frozen Custard Drive-In Restaurant located at 121 W Murdock Ave in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Through the help of a friend I had gotten permission to arrive at the drive-in during the wee hours of the morning.  My goal was to set up a classic night scene in front of the local iconic restaurant with all of the colored neon lights lit up in the background.

I had to work in the early morning hours because Leon’s is still open for business daily from 11a.m until 10p.m. with extended hours on weekends.  They close briefly for the season just before New Years.  They do annual restaurant maintenance for a few weeks and then will reopen for a new season just before Valentine’s Day.

I arrived at 5a.m. and set up this scene. Then I waited for the morning ambient light to come up some then the neon lights were turned on for me to complete my images.  I did several different set-ups using multiple cars and pickups from the 1950’s & ’60’s era.  I’m sharing one of my favorites with you here.

Merry Christmas Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by TheSideStreet and for all your support of my work.
