DH and I skipped off to Atlanta yesterday for a quick getaway to attend a Jazz reception at the High Museum of Art and spent several hours meandering around the exhibitions whilst enjoying the lovely strains of a Jazz Quintet. We chased that up with a tasty meal at the Spice Market, which although was good, was not a patch on the NYC version of the same….
Since in the vicinity we decided to scope out Old Car City this morning – which did not disappoint… We snagged a window in the rain, enough light to make for some decent picture taking and were thoroughly amazed at the cornucopia of fabulous rusty metal that lay before us…..
From Fords to Pontiacs, Buicks, Oldsmobiles and even the odd old MGB and Triumph…..
The colors, textures, paint and degradation were just super fodder for the camera.
The best $25 I have spent in a longtime and it was especially delightful to connect with other photographers who were out and about at the same spot, all kind and chatty and willing to share tips and info. Definitely a very smiley (awesome grungy) place to visit!!!!
And if nothing else, I came away with a huge folder of super cool textures to play with…….nevermind some super awesome weird car shots – definitely a spot to haul out the Fish Eye or super wide angle with some great resutls!!!
