We visited the old mining/ghost town of Chloride in Arizona and spotted this gas station which was in pretty good shape considering ages of neglect.

A monochrome gas station is a rare find. They were usually built in monochrome towns. As people moved away to multi-colored towns, their former homes fell into disrepair, and monochrome gas stations like this one were the only structures to remain standing in places like Monochromeville, AK.
Literally laughed out loud at this.

Great shot, by the way! I really like the cloud cover. It sort of makes the shot for me, adding to the dreary monochrome feel.

Great shot well processed - too bad the pumps were not active the prices would have been pretty attractive.

Yeah I remember the days of 28 cent gas and a case of Coors was $4.25, you'd think with all those cheap prices I would of saved more.

Bruce, I'm trying out the program DxO FilmPack, sort of fun to use the old film styles on the current photos.
