Petrol stations and 2am rendezvous.

Posting Access:
All Members

petrolstations is a quaint & quirky little artyfarty community that anyone and everyone can contribute to. Chances are you'll like it here if you enjoy photographs, art journals, scrap books, cryptic lyrics & poetry, witty one-liners, staying up too late, sleeping in on rainy days and things of that nature.

This community is for anyone who just wants somewhere to waste their early hours when the world is asleep.. feel free to post photographs, recommendations, mix tape track lists, outfits, questions, [although I SUCK at geography & maths], film caps, music lists, secrets and top 10s / 5s / whatever of anything and everything.

We want pretty things to look at, tales to tell and recommendations of things you like and think we would like.. books, films, songs and nice things like that.

Membership is moderated to keep this place dinky but posting access is a free for all once you're a member. Be sure to join, post and read over with a large cup of camomille tea.
