This photograph finished in a tie for 3rd place in the FAA Logo for Group Contest on 4-16-2014, sponsored by the FAA group Vehicle Enthusiasts. There were 126 photographs entered in the contest.
This historic gas station (Ambler's Texaco Gas Station, also known as Becker's Marathon Gas Station) was the longest operating gas station along Route 66; it was open for service and pumping fuel for 66 continuous years until 1999.
This station is located in Dwight, IL on Route 17 and Old U.S. Route 66.

From my eyes, through the view finder to the click of the shutter. I hope you enjoy these moments in time that have been captured.
