Photographer's Note

The photo was taken in a section of Boston called Dorchester. This still includes some of the city's poorest neighborhoods, but conditions don't look as bad there now as they did when this photo was taken. There are fewer places where people discard tires illegally by the side of the road. There is still reason to worry about the global effects of relying on fossil fuels. But, when this photo was taken, the sense of crisis had more to do with steep price increases for crude oil than the prospect of global warming. The sign in front of the Mobil Station reminds me of the improvisations that went with a very volatile market for gasoline--sometimes resulting in lines or occasional shortages.
