Out of Gas

On the way home after my trip to New Mexico in the summer of 2011, I stopped at the Love's truck stop at I-69 and State Road 18 in Indiana.

A young man had this cardboard sign in the window of his van, asking for gas money so that he could get home to his family in Florida. He had left home in search of work, after being unemployed for a long time. He hadn't found a job anywhere in his travels, so he was forced to go back to live with his parents after running out of money.

I gave him $10, the last cash I had, to help him out. I know what its like to be that down-and-out. A sign of the times in the United States.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
