Robert Adams - Eden, Colorado, 1968

I love the vintage feel of this print. Even though it was taken in 1968, it looks like the print was made years before. The high contrast and the saturated blacks and white made this image stand out to me. It is simple but the extreme grey scale that is shown in the building is something that i really like about this photo. The dark edges of the building against the whitest sky opposite to the dark ground and white gas stations, make this image also seem impossible. I feel like there is a really bright light above this gas station for this image to actually be possible.
