This little still life ewas taking during a visit at the Belgian ghost town called 'Doel', near the Antwerp harbour. Since a few decades, plans for enlarging the harbour made inhabitants of this village (near the nuclear power plant) had thhemselves buyout. The entire village (except a handfull of remaining inhabitants) is desolate now, so it has become a playground for sunday tourists, urban photographers, and (alas) graffiti sprayers. I took a picture of theseremaining petrol pumps, as they seem to be silent but audacious watchers of their village.
