• Dead Fuel Stations

last modified August 10, 2012 by strypey

I'm slowly assembling all the photos I've taken around the country as a set on my FlickR photostream. While doing a search on FlickR for 'dead service stations', heaps of photos turned up. Seems I'm not the only one with this obsession.

 DSS we photographed or noted on our road trips to Kaitaia and back over the summer of 2011/12. Note: Emma's camera date was set wrong, so all photos taken with her camera with actually taken a day after the watermark in the photo file would suggest:
