Old Car City

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 14 October 2014 in Transportation.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog while I was away. Over the weekend, I went to Old Car City in White, Georgia. It started as a junkyard in 1931 for car parts. Cars were lined up in a field that eventually expanded to 35 acres of cars. Eventually trees took over and the cars ended up in the woods. There are over 4,500 cars along trails in the woods. It was opened up three years ago for photographers.

Stunning shot of the place for their second lives. The rusty texture tells us how many days they were there. They would spend days with trees and animals. Have a great week, Elaine. :)

A wonderful feel of neglect and disrepair in this shot Elaine! I would imagine that it was a photographers paradise! ;-)

What an intriguing place to visit and capture photos!! This car looks like it was quite a prize back in the day. An eye-catching "spider web" crack in the driver's window.
