Oil Change

One of my favorite quick stops along the back way to Devil's Lake is the bottom of a private driveway loaded with gas station memorabilia. I guess the people who own them like the way they look and so do I.

  1. I've never quite understood the gas station memorabilia thing. I see it all the time on American TV shows. Perhaps our Australian service stations weren't as interesting as yours! #MySundayPhoto

    1. As someone who's currently tearing apart their apartment and getting rid of boxes and boxes of stuff I can't see collecting anything, unless it's money. What American TV shows are you watching?

  2. That's just gas station memorabilia? Wow, someone sure likes their petrochemicals! That said, I can see why it's one of your favourite stops. #mysundayphoto

    1. Oh yeah, there's more to it but I liked this shot. There's even a stop light in the mix.

    1. I think it was one of my throwaway pocket camera shots, but I liked the colors.

  7. I Think it all looks fabulous, and somehow familiar even if I'm not in your country, I guess from the films I've watched it's how I imagine your gas stations to look :)

    1. One of my favorite backgrounds in Back to the Future was the Texaco guy filling up the tank.

    1. I don't see much of it around here but it's just down the way from a popular spot and I'm not giving up on trying to get a good shot of it.

    1. I think my dad would have liked this too and I could have gotten him to pose in front of the gas tanks pretending to fill the tank, lol. That's a nice remembrance of your father.
