Industrialization by Zixu Wang

January 2021 - Industrialization

About the Image(s)

This photo was taken on my way to Savannah from Atlanta. The location is Chevron gas station. I think it's interesting that the blue colors of three different hues appear in the same picture. However, they represent a completely different era. In the early twentieth century, the refining of petroleum and the use of gasoline in automobiles meant great achievements in the development of industrialization. The popularity of telephone booths began in the mid-twentieth century, and people began to pay attention to the improvement of the quality of life. Now, the harm caused by industrialization has become more and more obvious in the environment. Shot by iphone 12 Pro, F/1.6,1/7s, IOS 100. Edited by lightroom for ios.

I think this is a great image. I like how you saw a potential image and captured it to tell a story. I like how you took everyday things that are usually overlooked and used them to make not just a great image but a statement. Good eye, well done.   Posted: 01/06/2021 17:42:21

I love the combo of the subjects in this image as its not one that's often seen these days. The blue sky also adds an extra bonus. The subjects from different eras also adds an intriguing element to the photo.   Posted: 01/08/2021 17:43:42

I think Industrialization should be a category. Nice job. Simple but tells the history of yesterday and today.   Posted: 01/08/2021 18:41:04
