The incredibly rust-crusted surface, cracked paint, fallen enamel face, and broken glass still manage to fail when it comes to robbing the old filling station pump in this 7x10 photo of its inherent good looks (so long as you've had your tetanus shot, anyhow).

How long this vintage gas pump has been sitting in front of the Conoco filling station beside Route 66 in Commerce is anyone's guess, but judging by the ratio of rust compared to what little remains of the white paint, it's been here for quite some time.

What was once crisp white paint has been nearly entirely removed; it has flaked off due to rain, heat, and wind. Instead, the surface of the gas pump is revealed by this wall art photo to have a marvellously rough surface—coarse bumps of orange, ochre, red, chocolate, terra cotta.

The knotty rainbow of rust covering the old Bennett filling pump contrasts oddly with the still neat and clean white face of the pump, which, although it has partly fallen into the pump itself, still boasts clear, easy-to-read black letters and atomic-style 1950s script. Nearly all of the glass from this watcher of the Mother Road is gone, though the oblong glass window informing us that this is regular fuel remains. Despite being cracked, the big block letters are as clear as the day they were painted.

Whether this dilapidated, rusty old filling station pump will ever be restored is not something I know. But even if it is repaired to its former glory and sits beside Route 66 gleaming away for decades to come, I have to say that I think it's beautiful just as it is, too. The flaking remnants of paint, the fascinatingly rusty, crusty orange surface; they make the old Bennett gasoline pump beautiful in its own way.

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

• The limited-edition photo from the road trip (of everyone's dreams!) 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 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 documentary wall 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.

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.
