Environmentally Friendly Gas Station



Like the bells in my last post, which by the way I've never heard, (although there are plenty around here that I have heard) I pass by this muralised station all the time. This normally isn't my kind of thing, but in a strange way it kind of fits.
I almost forgot to mention that this gas station went out of business before I moved to the area.
Have a great weekend!

Very cool!

Have a great weekend! I wonder where your travels will take you? We are headed "down the shore" on Monday. Ocean City, NJ!

This is my blog.
OMG! Just beautiful! Photography is such an adventure. It takes us everywhere. This is a great find and I am loving it! The last shot is very impressive. Have a great weekend James and show me more finds!I am debating between the Japanese Garden or the San Fernando Mission, all in my neck of the woods!

Hey James,

It's sort of a vacation only, but not for me, it's for my computer. It's gone for an upgrade. So I'm just rotating my posts. There were a few pics that went un-noticed when I'd just started blogging. Just bringing them to front by changing the publish date. That's the reason why it's not updating the RSS feed link.

But I'll be back blogging some new pics from tuesday onwards :-)

These pictures look awesome. Nice paintings on the walls! Loved the last picture with the lens flare. Superb work!

These murals are so much better and pleasant of the ordinary scribbled wall... Good catch, a pity the station is closed.

Awesome ...especially the last shot.

It's cute (though petrol and environmentally friendly are new to me!) I too love the last shot, pretty colours.

I would never have thought about a mural on a gas station, but this is really pretty. I like the horses!

Hmmm that's interesting to say the least. Maybe they went out of business cuz everyone went green in the area ya think?

Interesting mural. Are there many in your area? It seems like a great way for artists to express themselves.

I'm with you in not really liking this sort of thig on the outside, yet this is so well painted and in keeping with the landscape that it really is quite charming.
Nice shots and post.
