The exposed, oxblood-red innards of an abandoned gasoline pump standing beside Route 66 in New Mexico made it an irresistibly attractive subject for this photograph of the pump and the filling station behind it. It is a scene of dereliction, borderline ruination from edge to edge of the frame; rust, flaking paint, and rot are taking their toll on the vintage gas station and the once hard-working pump standing, lonely, before it.

Despite its missing face, the curiously crooked red and white gas pump—listing slightly toward the right side of the frame—is the most orderly-looking thing in the photo. Dashes of ruby red stand out boldly against the seashell-cream, and a long, narrow band of deep sage green travels up the pump's left side, signals of the pump's various lives for different oil companies or perhaps simply different owners with understandably varying tastes and ideas for drawing customers off the Mother Road.


Photograph Title: Crooked Pump at 702
Print Size: 8x12 with a slender .35-.5" border; please ask about additional sizes
Photograph Orientation: Vertical
Photograph Taken In: San Jon, New Mexico, USA


Behind the main subject of the photo is a sliver of the equally abandoned filling station itself, decked out in cream paint which is erupting into scars above the wooden door beneath the canopy and from the weedy ground up beside the garage door. Corrugated metal painted a bright, cheery blue (Amoco?) is nailed onto the station's front just beside the canopy, disappearing into the right side of the frame. A glass window can be seen just behind the fuel pump, decked out in various stickers, its wooden frame having weathered the years a little bit better than the rest of the station's front. Beside the solid wooden entry door is the address of this abandoned gas station—702, in white letters on a red background.

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Route 66 Gas Station Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• My Route 66 documentary photographs are professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame 'off the rack', but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the colours in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads

Returns and exchange details

It is my desire for you to be entirely happy with your purchase, so I try to keep my policies fair.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your photo, please contact me within seven business days after receiving the photo print, and I'll work to come to an agreement that we're both happy with. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs as well as items not returned in their original condition.

Shipping policies

Items will be shipped first-class within three days (smaller prints up to 9x12 generally ship the next day; larger items require a trip to our rural post office and may unfortunately take up to three days to ship). Should I be out of town on a photo shoot or on holiday, I will post this in my shop updates and also note the shipping delay in your emailed invoice.

Your ship-to and payment method addresses need to match. If you're sending the item as a gift to someone else, just let me know in a note at the time you order. If a package is returned to me due to an address error on your part, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the item.

Prints are lovingly packaged very securely and shipped flat, enclosed in acid-free tissue paper, protected by twin pieces of foam core and a Tyvek envelope, all in an attempt to thwart any potential damage during their trip via USPS.

If you'd like insurance, let me know and I am more than happy to acquire it for you and bill you for the amount; usually this is not terribly expensive: about $1 US for an order up to $100.

Should an order be lost or not arrive in a respectable amount of time, we'll do our best to find it together. Ultimately, a lost item will be my responsibility; a replacement print will be sent to you at no cost.

If you prefer a shipping vendor other than the USPS, let me know and we'll work it out. Remember: I want you to be a happy customer.

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
