Hi gang! I hope everyone has been keeping their sanity during this crazy holiday season! I’ve been taking a lot of time out the past few weeks to work on images. As you may already know, one of my ongoing projects is to photograph over 350 service stations that I have researched and mapped out. When I’m traveling and shooting, I don’t have as much time to process the images, so they sometimes get “piled up.” I’ve been working on that virtual pile and wanted to share some before and afters with you.

When retouching the images, I don’t add any objects, but I will remove any modern elements such as cars, telephone lines, etc. I feel that this helps to create a timeless image. With the images posted below, use the scroll handle, dragging it left and right to see what the image looked like before and after processing. Enjoy!
