photos- matt panton
during our recent trip to rhode island, we stopped off at this abandoned gas station to grab some pictures. i used to live down the street from this particular one- looks like sadly, the economy got the best of it.
do you ever pass by a closed down business? one that was a landmark of some memory in your life you forgot existed? it's a little weird when it happens, right? it's just an abandoned gas station... a corporate one at that. but my dad actually knew charley. maybe it just makes me sad that a business had to shut down and someone's dream came to an end. maybe it reminded me of times past.
memories like driving down a nearby dirt road to my friend deliah's house, so we could all bounce on her trampoline.
well, those days are gone, and so is charley's mobil.
someone had thrown something through one of the windows...
and this opportunist snagged a photo of the hat through the hole in the glass.
new things are coming.
the future is wide.
i have faith.
