Mundane Monday Challenge : Motorbikes’ Open Bar


On top of my favourite bloggers is the great photographer Jithin. A few weeks ago, he launched Mundane Monday, an inspiring photo challenge encouraging us to find beauty in everyday life around us.

Here is my take for this week: a tiny gasoline station in Bantayan- a beautiful little island in the Philippines. Motorbikes here are on Grenadine !

  1. That reminds me of my childhood. We used to live just beside a motorcycle terminal in the province and the neighbor across our home sold gasolines like that outside their house.

    1. I love this colour. In my country you find gasoline only in stations so I had no idea it could ever be pink actually. To me gasoline was only defined by its smell. It gives a new taste to travel, feeding your motorbike with grenadine for a sweet trip. (maybe I should stop reading kids’ bedtime stories for a while they really have an influence on my mind :P). Where are you from originally? Have a beautiful day X

      1. Me too, at first I have had no idea what that pink stuff inside of a coke bottle. Then I saw motorcycle drivers stopping at the front of the neighbors’ house across us, gave some pennies to the owner, took a bottle and poured it down to his gasoline tank. My curiosity wasn’t satisfied so I came over pretending to ask for my friend to play and that was when I smelled the gasoline, so that was how I discovered it. 😀 I was born in Tungao, Butuan City. 🙂

      2. For a moment I was scared you would taste it 😉 I did the same, came closer enough to smell it, and it was repellent enough to convince me it was definitely not grenadine!

      3. 😉 better cheer with Champagne, those golden bubbles never lie! Have a lovely week end dear

  2. Why.. why so much kind words 😉 Thanks for making me happy by saying that 😀
    And welcome to mundane Monday challenge. More than the bottles, I like the way you have positioned your watermark right in the middle of the “O”. That was pretty cool. So is the light passing through full and empty bottles 🙂

    1. You are most welcome dear, I only stated the obvious ! Only you could notice the place of the watermark, and I really appreciate that 🙂

    1. THanks 🙂 I had no idea gasoline could ever look so yummy, each time I pass by this little shop I feel like eating gummy bears. The power of the sub conscience …

  3. My original comment didn’t go through:( my computer is sweating from the heat I suppose!
    I love the vibrant red color in these Coke bottles you saw st the gas station ! You were able to capture colorful energy in a spot most wouldn’t probably notice! Bravissima!

    1. Grazie mille 🙂 People were staring at me as if I were a complete alien when I took the pict and said how I loved those bottles. The seller looked a bit worried and finally told me “Mam, this is gasoline you know” . He might have thought I would like taste some 😉

      1. Yes I bet he thought you wanted to cool off with a sip! Lol I can imagine their surprise… But it was worth it to capture this cool shot!

      2. Thank you 🙂 I guess he ll be mesmerized at many things I never notice at home

    1. Thanks a lot 🙂 There is really beauty even in the most mundane things don’t you think? Have a sweet day!
