Gas Pump

Originally uploaded by needlepointernc

I used the Posterize filter on this photo cause the pump was pretty beat up. Notice that the button over the 87 octane choice is worn out. This was one of the first tanks of gas that I got when the price dropped from $4.00 a gallon to below $2.00 a gallon. I know we are lucky compared to others in the world, but it is a shock when the prices go up and down so much and are causing our RECESSIONARY ECONOMICS.

The Posterize filter really did a nice job on this photo. Yes, those gas prices are certainly volatile.

I’ve not been out and about near a service station lately, so don’t even know what the price of gas is in recent days. But it is certainly better than it was. Good photo, and good take on the theme.

Great effect from the filter. Nice photograph. We are definitely lucky that the prices went down.

Another great picture for the theme – and a great treatment of the image! Turned out really nice! I have to admit I am enjoying the lower gas costs!!
