Derelict project II – Old petrol station
This is second post in the series that I call Derelict. Its purpose is to show vacant properties around Malta – in details and old fashioned monochrome photography.
In November 2012, I have been to Paola to fix my banking issues (photographer at the bank is a good theme for a blog entry!) and came upon a petrol station that has been closed for more than a decade now. The old filling pumps are still there, but the place is used as an impromptu car park nowadays.
I wasn’t able to gather many details about this place. Right in front of the old station, state prison – Corrodino – is located, and the whole scene looks surreal, like a ghost town in the Wild West.
I don’t want to write a lot this time, because I am hoping that the photos will speak for themselves. Well at least that is the goal of a photo blog.
Critique and comments are welcomed.
