Seeking a camera viewpoint at a penny candy store

Impressed by an image of an NYC bodega, I chatted with the AI seeking to create a picture of a penny candy store of the sort that existed in the 1950s in New England. [ The one near my hometown Natick MA was the Wayside Country Store

This is my favorite image from the session. The clerk looks like a mannequin, and most of the signage is gibberish, but the lighting, camera angle, and candy display are well-done. And it DID get the Penny Candy signage correct.

The dialog as I iterated with ChatGPT is, to me at least, fascinating . . . here is that dialog : penny candy store chat.pdf - Google Drive

This is my 2nd-fave image from the session:

Stanley, thank you so much for posting the Google Drive pdf history of your trial and error instrux to get the image you were seeking… Super helpful!

I’m writing a series on LinkedIn to educate people about the skills needed to get what they want from AI

May I have your permission to use your images and back’n’forth instrux for people to understand what it takes to get what they want? (Crediting you, of course!)

Thanks so much!
