Old Car City

One of the coolest places I visited during my summer break was Old Car City in White, Georgia. It was very much worth braving my 35 mosquito bites and temperatures far from comfortable for a person from Belfast in order to see the 4,400 gently decaying vintage American cars on the site. 

Old Car City is set at the edge of a forest, and one of the most appealing things for me was the way the plants and the cars seemed to have grown and aged together to create such a magical environment. I sometimes identify the main themes in my work as beauty, heritage and decay, and as I've started editing my hundreds of shots from this trip it strikes me how very much all of these interests are being fulfilled here.
