  1. Derp Cars We've all seen them on our travels so i thought i'd start a little themed thread for them. Heres a couple from a few derp-houses that i've snapped from Calcott and Worthen Farmhouse i think. Feel free to add yours too! Now lets see yours!
  2. Whilst out early to get some snaps of the Norfolk broads I was travelling home and the sun was still low and frost glistening.so I took a diversion to see this small collection of vehicles.hid from sight in a clump of trees there is a small rselection here.my favourite being the series one landie..been waiting for this time of year to visit here for the overgrowth to die back.
  3. History “As fresh as they get. Vegetables harvested from neighbouring fields and sold in a traditional road side market style. If you are travelling north, through the Kapiti Coast, pop in to sample their seasonal faire.” Sang Sue Limited was a Chinese owned ‘acknowledged expert’ in the fruit and vegetable business. Although there are many other fruit and vegetable suppliers in the Kapiti coastal region, Sang Sue’s was known for its exceptionally fresh produce. In addition to the naturally grown products sold at the premises, Sue also supplied freshly baked bread from a small onsite craft bakery, because ‘good bread is one of the great pleasures of the table’, and beer, spirits, wine and cider sourced from boutique breweries around Kapiti. The cellar was described as being ‘well-stocked’, and the team of liquor sellers were very knowledgeable and passionate about their fully licenced goods. The small business boasted that it sold nearly 800 different subcategories in food and drink; some of these included fresh produce, dried and dehydrated fruits, mayonnaise and salads, delicatessens, cheese and cheese products, and food products machinery. Unfortunately, despite its success, back in 2015 the New Zealand Transport Agency acquired the business and closed it to make way for the MacKays to Peka Peka expressway; an 18 km four lane project that will cost the government $630 million. Our Version of Events Leaving Wellington early-ish, in an effort to reach a town called Bulls, we decided to have a quick break at a random fruit and vegetable suppliers that appeared to be abandoned. Hoping there might be some sort of home brew leftover we decided to investigate. Upon closer inspection it was obvious that the shop itself was fully stripped of anything interesting, so we decided to head around the back. We didn’t expect to find an awful lot around there, but experience has told us to always check the entire outside perimeter of a site; you never know what might be lurking. Bypassing the guard dog warning sign, and a very large barbed wire fence and gate, we crawled through some extremely thorny bushes instead – because that seemed like the least painful option at the time. As we emerged through the sharp barbs, dead branches, and from beneath a large truck trailer that had become part of the bush, we were expecting to find an overgrown back garden; maybe, we surmised, it would have had an old algae-filled pond or something. We soon discovered our assumptions had been incorrect, however, as we found ourselves stood inside a bizarre vehicle graveyard of some sort. There was an array of vehicles: cars, quad-bikes, tractors, trucks and vans. It was quite clear that some had been there for a long time as the ground was steadily absorbing some, and foliage had consumed others; one, which was completely sealed, even had a bush growing inside it. Much more satisfied with our find at this point, we decided to hang around for twenty minutes to grab a few shots. After that, we left. Jobs a goodun’. Explored with Nillskill and Bane.

  4. Hi all, Some pictures from old cars...
  5. The last location I did in 2015. It's not really a chateau, more like a big house, but codenames can be tricky sometimes I guess. The owner had lots of cars, on the last pictures I saw from other people there were more spectacular ones, but I guess they cleaned up the garden. A lot of mess in most rooms, but two of the rooms where actually quite worth photographing!
  6. In a small French village, in the middle of nowhere, lies this old garage/car graveyard... ...Garage Pousette... Thanks for lookin' folks...
  7. Hey everyone finally joined up here, an thought id start by sharing this place, visited awhile ago now, an loved it to be honest but recently its been the target of vandals who have trashed and stolen a fair amount of things from here, so thought I would share this place as I found it, last owned by an old gent who I think used to live inside the cottage at one point and then moved in with his children as old age crept in, he occasionally still visits and sweeps around the cottage, but unsure on the situation since vandals have been in. Kind of felt sorry for the old gent really as these are most likely his pride an joy or was. 1 2 3 4 7 8 14 16 Now a quick nose round this small cottage, sadly it was packed of magazines and broken furniture so just picked out some items laying about. 5 10 11 12 13 15 17 18 Cheers for looking everyone an more to come when I get round to it.
  8. A strange place in Musafah where broken cars are rested. Some of them are not damaged, they are with numbers. Those without any numbers were delievered here after accidents. There's a rule in UAE that if a car has a 40-percent (or more) damage, they strike it off the register. Of cause you can buy it and renew but you can't drive on it. That's why there's a huge amount of cars here, they look really ready to drive, but they'll never do, they've found an endles rest here. It looks like Stephen King's Christine. That's the whole city. Not a city but a graveyard. Some of the cars are really preciuos. So that's all about the Emirates, thanks for looking!
  9. Honey I'm hooooooooomeeeee! I've spent the last 19 days going on various jaunts around America so have been absent from the forum (love the new look in black btw). My first port of call was checking in with my good mate in Buffalo, New York for the first weekend and a trip we had planned for some time, to an amazing junkyard located in the middle of the Canadian wilderness. And oh man was this a slog - one of the most challenging explores I have ever done, not because of the access but because of the weather. Spending five and a half hours walking around fields full of knee deep snow covered in half a centimetre of ice, with every step you take involving said ice impacting your shins is very painful indeed. After five hours I realised my feet had finally succumbed to the cold and wet - my jeans had frozen solid from the knees down, and the snow had compacted in the folds and subsequently soaked my thick woollen socks from the top down into my shoes leaving me standing in freezing cold puddles in my shoes. But what a place. The most amazing collection of scrap I have ever seen - 1000s of cars, trucks, buses, vans, pickups, campers, literally everything you could possibly imagine from the 1940s through to the 1990s is spread out over numerous fields and woodlands on this guys property - 99% of it being American and the vast majority from the 1950s and 60s. Totally worth it, and you can rest assured I'll be back when there is no snow...as it somewhat limited the stuff I could take photos of sadly. I'm going to try and keep the amount of photos sensible but even in the conditions, I took 150... This extremely rare hard top camper was my favourite thing in the whole place. Pure 1960s cool. My second favourite thing in the whole yard, an example of which I had wanted to see for years - a GMC 'Fishbowl' bus. Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157651544603365/ I've got some truly awesome stuff to post up over the coming few days so watch this space!

  11. This is a random old place, from what we have found out while bumping into various new owners of the land, there used to be a slaughter house on the land for many many years, then some sort of a collection of motor vehicles has happened over the many many years.. With a mass variety of things such as vans, cars, fire engines, aircraft parts, buses, baths and even the odd toilet, kitchen sinks and a big huge bull. We found out that the lady that owned the site had died a few years ago, and the 5 daughters had inherited the land, their husbands were now slowly weighting in all the vehicles and clearing the land of the 3500 vehicles that nature was slowly starting to reclaim.. We had also found snippets in local newspaper from the 1980's selling some of the vehicles off. It is such a shame to see them all just get dragged about by diggers, loaded into a dumper lorry and crushed, as it is a cool site, but over the last yea, the place has now become more and more noticeably bare we visited this time just so myself and my fiend could check it out for a model shoot, and so I could have a play with the new canon 17-40mm L f/4 lens. So these shots are all handheld and either with that lens or the Canon 50mm f/1.4
  12. I'd seen this place through the trees when driving by. I went to check if it was abandoned. I think it was a farm originally, then turned into auto shop/garage/towing or something similar.

  13. I've done this one before but fancied doing it again now I'm on the HDR... A collection of about a ten old Wolseleys, left for the elements to corrode and nature to reclaim... Really nice place to waste an hour or so... 'The Rusting Wolseleys'
  14. Here a Location in Luxemburg. In a Little Village standing this House, and a lot off Cars in it. And so we get in to a forgotten world.
