Occasionally on my travels I spot the odd piece of abandoned technology, be it an old vending machine or as in this case old petrol pumps. There is something about them that interests me. I think it is that at one point they were in constant everyday use, a focal point, something we needed to use to get on with our day. Now they stand there unnoticed and abandoned. I took these photos of old petrol pumps in the space of three weeks or there abouts. One in each of counties Wicklow, Offaly and Galway.
These pictures are going back a few months now. The small lake was frozen over during the cold weather and I snapped these guys just standing around on the ice. In the foreground of the photos we have Mallards with what I think are Black-headed guls in winter plumage in the background.
The photos were taken in Arklow, County Wicklow, on a pretty dull day with snow laden clouds. The photos are not of great quality but I just wanted to break my duck with, well, erm, ducks!
