Mayflower Cafe Photography


The Mayflower Cafe is a landmark eatery in Jackson, Mississippi dating to 1935 featuring Greek-inspired seafood & steak dishes in retro digs. As the oldest operating restaurant in the capital city, the classic, Greek-inspired seafood and steak menu has been passed down through the Kountouris family from generation to generation.

The goal of this project was to capture an image of the the restaurant at night and accurately but dramatically show the colorful neon signs that light up the Capitol Street area around it.

At the time, the M-A-Y and F letters on the sign were not operational so they were added later in editing. Each image is an HDR composite of 3-4 images.
