In searching for a photo of something interesting, I found another gas station at night. Doing this project, I’ve noticed some repetitive things, and gas stations seem to be one of them for me.
At night, the machinery that is largely ignored is more prominent. I never noticed the infrared lights on the ground, never read the advertising, never noticed the legal certifications, or even the warning signs. In the hurry of just getting your gas and getting on my way, I just never notice.
So what’s happening with this 365 project is that I work all day then end up spending the evening either contemplating going out to shoot or wondering around looking for something to shoot. It’s winter, so I haven’t been doing much walking, just driving around looking at what is out there in the somewhat dead town of Newark, Ohio.
I keep ending up looking at the lit up gas stations when I’m completely out of ideas. They’ve got the essential ingredient for night photos, light.
