[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The (portable) petrol stations were one of the little fascinations of the oasis towns in Southern Tunisia. I have seen larger versions of these pumps around South Africa, but I really know little about them.

I liked the transparent cylinder, the connection with the moped in the background with converging lines of the walls and pump shadow.

Hello Dan,

Very well composed shot. You have nicely placed the out of focus bike in the back. Nice natural colors too.

In Pakistan we have similar pumps to suck out engine oil from the cars from where the dip stick goes.

Thanks for sharing

Curiosas las bombas de gasolina del sur de Tunez. Fotogria parecida la tengo yo situada en Tozeur/chevika.
