Here’s a cool little place in Georgia that I hadn’t heard of until recently – Old Car City. A couple of months ago I joined a group of photographers that was visiting the site. Yes I know… it took me this long to blog about it but hey, I got a little busy This is not the sort of thing I usually shoot so I was excited about the challenge.
When I got there I immediately noticed the abundance of mosquitoes. Thank goodness someone else had the sense to bring insect repellent. So needless to say, they immediately became my best friend. haha. It quickly was made known that we were to watch out for snakes and ground-level bee nests – another detail I wasn’t aware of but I guess given the condition of the cars, it’s to be expected. I did mention this isn’t my regular sort of photo shoot didn’t I? The best way to avoid snakes, other than just not shooting there, was to not disturb the cars. Meaning, that if a car hood was closed you don’t want to open it and shake what’s in it
We spend several hours there just soaking in the gobs of textures available. They had some really cool muscle cars in their original shells including the Mustang my dad once owned. Here are just a few shots from the day.
