Things Fall Apart...

Some "art" shots from our vacation, taken in . I’m a sucker for old, dilapidated buildings. No idea why, but I surely am. This old gas station was across Rt. 68 from our hotel, in Aurora, KY. I couldn't resist wandering over for a few images. I like this version (above), converted to B&W, with a slight sepia tone… A longer shot (below) shows where the pumps were, which is now all blocked off.

The pumps had been removed, but the marquee is still there… If the price was really $2.319, then it’s probably been closed less than 2 years…. What do y’all think?

Black and white was the perfect choice. It has a more worn look. Nice composition and I love old buildings and things too.

The old stuff = the good stuff. (Usually.)
