The Car Cemetery

Welcome to the Car Cemetery.
Just over an hours drive from my home, just inside the Swedish boarder lies one of the most fascinating places I have been. A Car scrap yard which has become a Cemetery since everything has been left to nature.
To begin the series I thought This iPhone shot would make a great start.

One of my favourite subjects besides people.I love to photograph dereliction and abandoned places and things or Urban exploration as it is better known.
This is one of my favourites from a series I did over two visits to a local abandoned psychiatric hospital. I’ll share some more soon.
Picture wise this was taken with a tripod mounted Leica MP with a 20mm Nikkor 20mm lens via a Novoflex adapter using Ilford XP2 .The negative was scanned on my Epson V700
