Abandoned Cars
This might be a painful sight for classic car enthusiasts. Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and BMW just a few of the iconic names whose logos you would never expect to find on vehicles in such a pitiful state. But what might really shock you is that these unfortunate automobiles are not actually abandoned, and their owner is in fact a classic car lover and expert himself. In his early years he has raced with most of the cars and for dozens of years he has deliberately left these cars at the mercy of mother nature.

“Mounting the tripod in the backside of the BMW was very difficult, the floor was so rusty and rotten that little movement could collapse the crumbled floor. So little space to move to the exact position for the best photo composition, without destructing the spider webs. Also it was a real challenge to get sharp and focussed photographs. Because the rear seats of the car was so worn, it was almost not possible for me to place the tripod without obtain movements to the camera.” - Jan Stel
