Drive-Thru Pharmacy

Yardley, Pa.  (2012)

The more I look at this the more I love it. This is a location I pass by frequently. In fact, the hills in the background are part of False Mountains. I have been love/hating and observing this CVS store ever since they broke ground on the construction. It is monumental. A shrine to the world of pharmaceuticals. Everything about this image is what I have wanted in finally photographing it. The compositional balance... two telephone poles, two brick pillars, two arrows. The soft lighting... the color of the sky (straight out of a Joel Meyerowitz photograph) The double usage of the word exit, and the font on "Drive-Thru" that looks as if it were salvaged from a KFC warehouse. It all comes together in this one.
