Monochrome in Maine

We lost our electricity for 4 days after the hurricane.  Then we had our vacation in Maine, in the middle of nowhere without any electricity..Now we are back into the fast pace of work and life..

I took this photo while we were driving in Maine, on our way to Eastport - one of the easternmost locales in the mainland USA.

I liked the photo in color, but the blues and reds drew your attention away from the old car. In black & white,  I like the way your eye is drawn to the textures in the car and the way it is framed between the two old gas pumps.  I wonder what the price of fuel was back then??

Visit Dragonstar at The Weekend in Black and White for a fabulous sampling of Monochrome Photography


  1. Terrible spelling! I meant 'A bygone time'!

  2. What a fantastic photo!!! I shared a photo of something old that I took in Maine, as well.

  3. Very good photo and excellent choice for black and white.

    Regards and best wishes

  4. Hi Phyllis,
    This is just perfect. I like the rounded Esso signs playing off the rounded car top. Where ever did you find such a gem? The weeds add the final and perfect time gone by edition.
    Frame it! :-)

  5. Great find!! I like old cars and antique buildings. Imagine the gas was cheap enough to ask for 25 cents worth.

  6. I love the way this photo takes us back in time...well done.
