These tracks have proven to be a subject I keep coming back to. The geometry, the texture, the power of this iconic American subject is just too good not to capture.
These shots were all taken with the Kodak Brownie Holiday Flash. A glass Kodet lens, shutter button, and advance wheel. Proof that it truly is not all about the gear. And, a true challenge to anyone shooting digital, to try to replicate these kinds of looks.
I was asking myself this same question, after seeing this Phillips 66 gas station, while climbing over the fence, away from the tracks….
Snooze, you lose. Prices have already gone up 20 cents/gallon since this was taken, a little over a week ago. In a few months, this price may look like a bargain. The world shuts down to watch a royal wedding, yet people just accept these prices, and could care less that oil companies are enjoying record profitability. Jumping off the soapbox.
