Thematic Photographic - Busted

Every Wednesday, Carmi posts the week's theme for Thematic Photographic. For the next seven days, bloggers post photos that echo that theme. This week's theme is: Busted.

"My bills are all due and the baby needs shoes and I'm busted
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound, but I'm busted
I got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay
A big stack of bills that gets bigger each day
The county's gonna haul my belongings away cause I'm busted."
- Ray Charles, 1963
This abandoned gas station and store is in Angelina County in east Texas. Busted.

Bravo! for the photo and the lyrics together.

It is sad, though.

Oh, that poor little station. Somehow I'd like to rescue it. Imagine, it was once someone's livihood!
