For years now, countless people have asked me “Do you have any pictures of old abandoned vintage cars?” and my answer has been sadly, “No”. So when a friend and fellow photographer Rich Nicoloff of ‘Photography From the Journey’ told me about a junkyard of over 4000 old cars out in the woods, I jumped on the opportunity. After driving for over three and a half hours I really hoping that it would be wort it, but when we pulled in and started to walk around I knew we had made the right call!
Most of the time when I am photographing old buildings and locations, I try to tell the story of the location and create a ‘sense of place’, but while I was at the graveyard I really wanted to focus on the details and the parts. So I left my ultra wide angle lens in my bag for most of the day and oped to capture the old emblems and details of these beautiful old vehicles quietly rusting away out in the woods.
I hope you enjoy!
