Old Service Station

This was a gas station in Hampshire Illinois. Now they use it to restore antique gas pumps like the ones pictured. My dad owned an old full service gas station that his dad started in 1953. I have a soft spot for nostalgic midwest Americana.


This is a photo I took last year that didn't turn out well. I've since acquired Lightroom 3 and Nik Silver Efex Pro which has control points that are amazing. So with about 20 min of work, I was able to salvage this. What an age we live in where we can utilize the beauty of film and the modern marvels of technology.
