Another post about the derelict gas station in El Dorado County. I had to dig into the photo archive and find something to process and post. Yes, that means I have run out of recently-shot usable photographs. It is interesting how one photograph can appear entirely different than another by a slight change of location and processing. I shot a photo from the other side of this square room and ended up with Pleasant Valley (CA), Old Gas Station Panes, Gas Pump, Light, a less foreboding than what we see here.

So why the lack of new images or at least usable images? For one, the exploration the day before was successful (and not successful) in that I found the location and had access, but it was one of those locations where I did not feel safe being alone shooting. I did about 30 minutes of exploring, mentally noting areas to shoot, and then left vowing to return again. Secondly, I am not a volume shooter, so I need to go out and shoot often, which is dependent on a variable amount of free time on hand.
