Gas Stations. From today’s monthly newsletter, which was about 200 years of photography and social change, and then I mixed it up with gas stations. Im not quite sure why….but I did.
Perhaps because Memorial Day weekend kicks off summer and that often means road trips.
Gas stations have certainly changed with time…from full service to self service, from gas and repairs to full fledged mini-marts, of course from analogue to digital. You can always find abandoned ones. Perhaps that’s why I photograph them so often.
Or maybe Im drawn to them by the nostalgia of road trips as a child. Or perhaps they attract me because in the 1970s they offered the Esso NHL PowerPlayers hockey cards.
