Violet Hill Gas Pumps

Violet Hill Gas Pumps

Today I am sending you all a Post Card from Violet Hill! Between Shelburne and Alliston Ontario you will find the little hamlet of Violet Hill and these abandoned fuel pumps. I passed by several of these on our travels this summer and each time I thought I should stop and turn around to take a shot but then didn’t. This time I listened to myself and got the shot.

  1. This brought about a strong memory of driving across Canada on my way to Alaska way back in the 80’s. Thanks for prompt 🙂

  2. I like it that you said you “listened to yourself” – that’s a good reminder for all of us, I think! And I am glad you got this shot – it has a nice, surreal feel to it.

  3. That is so well crafted. And the ‘look’ matches the subject very well.

  4. I cannot resist old petrol pumps – I have quite a few in my collection (images that is).
