Snapped this dead gas station building while on the fly on La Cienega just north of La Tijera coming back from a job fair near the airport yesterday afternoon.

This isn’t my first time seeing the awesome installation of the bones-only version of the winged Mobil Oil mascot, but it was my first time passing one during which I had a camera that I could bring to bear on it. It wasn’t until viewing the image at home that I found the four-year-old campaign placard on the pole in the foreground and thus the title.
