Amazing discovery, like a farm sprouting a crop of old machines rather than corn

While driving to hike a waterfall, I discovered this gold mine of rusty, crusty goodness purely by accident — this meadow full of rusty, old vehicles and antique machines — literally acres and acres of them crumbling away amongst the tall weeds. There were many more back in the woods where I couldn’t go. I parked my car and photographed as many as possible from the public side of the barbed-wire fence.

Fine black and white photographic prints are available for purchase. Send a message or visit my website to learn more.
