This past weekend I packed up and headed to Old Car City USA in White Georgia. It’s about 6 hours away but well worth the drive. I love my cars, and I loved this place. There are acres of cars and random buildings. There are cars with trees growing through the grills even!
Everything is for sale or trade, but I would just pay the extra and take your camera for a few hours and enjoy the experience.
*Please note, a few hours will far from cover the amount there to photograph.
Being from Florida now, I was not prepared for the 37 degree weather, but once I saw the place I just could not leave. Dean, the owner, was very nice and gave advice upon entering and didn’t rush me out the door when I was late to go. There was a lot of crawling over vehicles and under trees to get to some decent shots that I wanted but the entire experience was more than worth the time and effort. I left feeling cold, dirty, and very tired, but I am ready to go back, for a few days.
So many things and so many opportunities for more photos, or something to buy and fix up. you can still see the glory in what once was of these amazing cars. I know there is a photo workshop coming up that RC Concepcion has been talking about. I would message him and find out the details to go.
While you are there keep your eyes open for amazing HDR opportunities as well as any other edits you can do to increase the dramatics of a photo. With cars and shooting, the secret is in the details. I can only hope that I get a chance to make it back out to Old Car City USA some day soon for a few days….
