Fantastic! I'll remember seeing this, as true art, long after it becomes cliche. Future and past caught beautifully in a stark vision. Awsome.

I pray the fuel pumps go dry everywhere across our globe. We can no longer afford the blood they dispense.

great capture of the desolate nature of the town. The dark shadows and dirt on the gas pumps give this shot the perfect emotion.

Contrast is bold, dark, and sweet.
Almost looks like this was done with just charcoal.
