Since I was a teenager, I have wanted a Cadillac from one of the three years between 1959 - 1961. They are rare and typically when I see one, I get butterflies, but seeing this one rusting in this junkyard made me sad. I knew the only thing I could do would be to take photographs, so I did.
In a past life, she got someone where they needed to go.
She played tunes on her radio, that someone sang along to.
She drank more gasoline than the owner expected.
She broke someone's heart when she was sold.
She lives on in the memories.

Last September, on the night of the solar eclipse, I was shooting down in a SoCal desert junkyard with some friends.
The clouds covered the moon right as the eclipse was happening, so I turned the camera towards the very dark Western sky and took this image while using a Streamlight Stinger flashlight.
This was one of my favorite scenes from a car junkyard one October evening in the Southern California desert.

Light painting cars in the middle of the night is one of my favorite things.
Another awesome car, sitting lonely in a Mojave Desert junkyard.
