This is the town of Mogollon, New Mexico, they dug gold from quartz mines. It was very popular from the mid to late 1800's to about 1940. This shot was taken before it really started to decline.
For a small town, they sure have a lot of gas stations, this one road is not that long and there was at least two stations. And each one had several pumps. This one couldn't even make up their mind which one to sell.
Anyway, I kept the buildings earth tones for the most part, the color is similar to what is there now. This building still exists though its been cleaned up and added onto. Interestingly, they still have one of the old pumps, I made the pump without the globe the same color as the one they have now.
There is also a weird assortment of metals used on that shed, some had a wallpaper like pattern.
