Some resting & rusting Buicks

Recommended Posts

As a photographer, sometimes a visit to the junkyard has a purpose even when I am not looking for parts

@Jack Welch  Kinda like the Titanic! 

But , I did not have to get wet to photograph them, only have to worry about hornets and snakes.

If the ambulance is based on a Buick then someone here does need it in a hurry 😜

 

Don’t have to worry about snakes nor hornets here at this time of year...and none of our snakes are poisonous in this neck of the woods anyway.

We don't have many poisonous snakes here in New England either, but lots of hornets, come summer. That ambulance is in fact a Buick circa 1946 thru 48. It would be a monumental restoration project though.

Every car leaves the factory in homogeneous forms in different colors. Nature has such a neat random way of taking them back, no two alike.

The deserted cars that I have photographed in New England have a totally different "patina" than those I have photographed in New Mexico or Arizona or even California. I love the effects of the dryer climates, paint will be burned off, many times in layers and the chrome will still be perfect.

Sometimes a little bit of red leaf will help your fingers tingle from knowing how the sting feels.

Or you can taste stuff.
