A Wonderful Find

One of our family friends was showing me a couple of photos she had taken on her iPhone this winter and when I saw one I asked her where she found that subject, an old General Store. I decided right then that I was going to go visit that place with my camera as soon as the weather warmed and cleared. I’m so glad she put me onto this place because the photo below has become one of my new “favorites” of 2015 so far.

Getting a bit closer, I focused in on the old gasoline pump.

Check out the per gallon cost of gas at the time this pump was shut down. 32 cents.

Outdoor advertising was the main method of getting attention to products. Some signs were hand painted, others printed. All interesting and in the case of those still around, looking good.

Subjects like this are really great to find and photograph. In this case I had some help in the form of a tip from a friend. I’d love to get a lot more of these kinds of tips. Who knows, maybe I will.
