Art Deco gas pump.
« on: April 23, 2017, 01:47:51 PM »
This is a pump near city hall in Mesquite, Nevada. There are few of these left in the wild and I like the art deco style. EF 35mm f/1.4L II, 6 stop ND filter, and one Canon 600 EX-RT.

Hi CanonFanBoy!

Lovely vintage subject. Nice series.

"Pump2" puts it in best light IMO.
"Pump1 WEB" gives a great contrast with the modern stainless steel silos in the bg. ;)

sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Interesting contrasts... pump looks old and rusted but external filter, hose & fittings and delivery nozzle all look brand new?  In background silo with '76' on it is well aged but others are gleaming stainless.
Two systems:  Canon & m43-Olympus/Panasonic

Love the overall look of the third one, "Pump2". Pure Canon.

Thanks guys! These were the first shots with my 35mm f/1.4L II. Sold a beloved guitar to get the lens. Grandchild on the way.

:) Still have my Yamaha. Unfortunately I sinned and sold my Martin. Fortunately, I have never learned to play. So while I will miss holding her and sniffing the sound hole, the lens will get better used.

I sniffed the Yamaha sound hole... it just smells like glue. :)

Thanks for the well wishes. :)
