Desuetude (des-wi-tood): discontinuance from use or exercise
When I must ensure I know a word’s meaning, I rarely use it, but in this case, desuetude is a perfect fit. This entire gas station was in a state of desuetude.
I had no intention of stopping at this place. I was whipping by at highway speeds when I saw that red phone. It was crying out, “Take my picture, please!” So I did.
I cranked a U-turn into that gas station and shot several pictures. The finished image was already complete in my mind before I ever depressed the shutter button.
Then I found a bonus image, a perfect companion piece for the Desuetude Department. The peeling blue label stood out almost as much as the red phone.
Can we even buy only 10 cents of gas any more?
