Stills and digital artwork
24 cents a gallon….remember when?
There I was just driving along a back road when there it was, an old gas station with an original gas pump still in it’s place, and the per gallon price was frozen at 24 cents per gallon. I have the color version available on my website as well.
Location: Rural South Carolina
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, ISO 100, f/8, 1/60th

I like this one. The color looks nice, but I’ll confess, I think the b&w gives the image such a timeless look. Very nicely done!

Working on that this week! And I am always open to suggestions for subjects! Looks like old tractors and farm equipment might be in the near future for blog entires….

😉 sounds good. I know it’s hard for me to scout out interesting subjects too…got excited about the wishing well I discovered for today’s post – but I think many favor sunsets 🙂

Now this is only me talkin here, but I don’t think it is so much what we photograph, but rather HOW we photograph our subjects. How can we show others not so much WHAT we saw, but HOW we see it? oh, and by the way, GREAT new image of you on your blog (but ya know I am partial to relaxed and fun shots!) lolol…

I agree with you. Photography is creative expression, and it’s the way the artist chooses to share his/her vision – yes?
On my new header shot — was pretty hesitant to use it as I wasn’t all that “relaxed or fun” — Family thought it was time to ditch the winter boots though 😉 We shouldn’t have shot it in bright sun -and maybe I would have less “squint” effect ~ but really didn’t feel like a retake. I’m glad you approved though – that makes me feel better for sure ! Thanks Stan ~
