About a week ago, on my search for inspiration, I finally stopped at a little treasure I’ve always wanted to shoot. For awhile I’ve been wanting to photograph this abandoned, ruined train car. It is located on the side of the road along with other abandoned trucks, army cars, and it looked like boats. You can see all of these from the road. They are on the grounds of a business, I didn’t get the name, and I am unsure if you are technically allowed on the property. However, having not photograph something abandoned in quite some time, I went for it.
I was excited to see this old train car up close and personal. I don’t know the story of the car or how it got there, but I do know that when I climbed inside I had to be careful. Being that the car is made of wood, the few steps that I took made some unsettling sounds. I kept my distance from walking fully inside. I do want to point out that in the middle of the car a tree has started to grow. Once again mother nature wins. There was some trash inside, but nothing I could see that was interesting. The car has been gutted and even though there isn’t much happening in this car, it was still fun to be back photographing something gone, but not forgotten.
