Vintage Gas Can

Vintage Gas Can


Today was one toasty day, 77 degrees will be the warmest yet. Here I present to you a gas can my parents have been using since the late 70's. Seeing that it was such a nice day and the lawn was was just crying out for a cut. Sadly part way through the cut I ran out of gas and while trying to fill up, there was no more left in the can.

Time for a refill! Dang those gas prices though.

  • I would say the strongest point of this photo is the bold color. Interestingly, the composition you chose would make a good product ad.

  • Interesting photo, given our current gas situation and that the last major crisis was at the time your parents bought that can. Great colors, nicely done

  • Nice vintage look to the entire image. The can, the colors, the dof...it all comes together well.
