LPG Tanks, Hoesan.

Liquid Petroleum Gas is used for cooking when your house or apartment is not connected to the city gas network. These tanks contain a mix of propane and butane and the ratio might differ depending on the season. Newer houses have metal pipes that run from the outside of the house to the inside, but this place just has a hose shoved through a hole in the wall and it probably runs directly into the gas range. Or a gas boiler? The pipe in the upper left of the photo comes from a furnace. Most likely an oil furnace.
I rather like the attempt to protect the tank valves from the rain with a bit of wood and some bricks.

LPG Tank Behind House, Hoesan.

Just in case you’re craving more propane, here is another tank. The hose on this one takes quite a rollercoaster ride before disappearing into a hole in the wall.

I’m thinking about making a collection of LPG tank photos, but the results so far are a bit boring. But it’s early days. I might find some interesting perspectives after I practise a bit. One problem is that these tanks are all on private property and I usually can’t get very close. I’ll have to go telephoto . . . .

  1. I can’t help it, but I simply love these pictures series of the LPG tanks and of course their hose “installations”, covers and everything about them. Please continue to work on this. You can show us a few teasers every now and then, before launching the great series which we won’t believe until we actually see it.
    This is great work my friend, and a fantastic idea in my opinion.
    Dangerous as hell, of course… but what can you do about it other than keep on taking photos and hope that it will get sorted out at some point without anyone getting killed.
    And if you have to go tele, you got to do what’s needed mate! đŸ™‚
