The 505 - Abandoned Gas Station in Two Guns, Arizona

(Please clickity-click to see the empty garage larger than life with a nice, dark background)

Feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything of the urbex variety on the site, especially now that storm season has arrived. Feels good to change the pace up and throw out an image from waaaay back in April that I kept forgetting about.

This was the inside of an old, abandoned gas station up at Two Guns, Arizona. I friggin’ love old, lost gas stations along well-traveled highways. Anything left for dead like that is cool, but you have to wonder how a gas station could fail when it sits right on a freeway that sees thousands of cars a day.

Probably the creepiest thing in this picture is the little girl graffiti off to the right. I think her name is Gem.

I loved how open the place felt with all the glass and sliding doors long gone, so I wanted to include the sky as much as I could.

    Love the wide shot here. The cloud formation gives the shot some nice detail in the negative space too! That drawing is pretty creepy looking; hope you didn’t get too scared 😉

    Overly cautious? I don’t think the 4 of us could’ve lifted the 6500 Range Rover out of the 6 foot deep oil change pit. Geez – a guy tries to make sure his buddies don’t get stuck in an abandon gas station…

    Now I need to post MY gas station shot.
