The goold old days of cheap fuel

Fuel Price Countdown

The price of fuel keeps going up and up but the price increases arrived too late for McCarthy’s Garage in Schull where I made this photo of an ancient petrol pump. The detail on the full size image is wonderful, but I’m happy enough with this web version too.

Links: The Flickr Blog recently featured stories from Ireland with some nice 70’s shots.
Remember the Guinness Ad with the dominoes? It was filmed in a small town called Iruya in northwest Argentina. It’s so remote it’s barely accessible by road in the winter. Here’s some photos from Iruya. I didn’t think it was worth all the effort to make that advert but everyone else seems to like it! (via)
Here’s that advert to refresh your memory:

Aperture ƒ/6.3

One reply on “The goold old days of cheap fuel”

I found your site via the super cache plug in page and I am glad I did I enjoyed your photos of Ireland. I lived for 12 years in Virginia in Co. Cavan myself.

I liked the way you have something in the foreground big and bold and then it still being possible to get the feeling of what was behind, it makes for compelling photography.

I use a Canon 400D and will often do like you do and get close, really close to my subject to get an enhanced view of it.
