We venture a little farther from home with this image taken at sunset. If you look closely you can see a couple leaning together in deck chairs at the end of the pier as they take in the evening colors and the activity on the bridge. We got here by car while on a trip to visit a family home place. Can you guess where we are?
And, how about our last image, re-posted below, from the self-proclaimed "World's Oldest Junkyard Jungle"? Have you ever considered a junk yard for a morning outing? Would you be more interested if you knew that over it's eight decades in existence this place had hosted hundreds of photographers from ad agencies and media companies?
It's called Old Car City and it is located in White, Georgia just off I-75. If you are traveling northbound from Atlanta, take the exit north of exit 290 at highway 411 and turn right. You'll run into Old Car City on your right after a short drive. If you have kids with you, the magnificent Tellus Science Museum is off the same exit, on the other side of I-75.
Here's what the Old Car City has to say about itself:
"Old Car City . . . contains the worlds largest known classic car junkyard [that] . . . started as a small general store in 1931 and is still family owned and operated. . . . . With over 34 acres and over 4000 American-made cars from the early 20th Century, these cars, trucks, vans, and even a couple school buses are placed in such a way as to be ideally suited for photos, videos and custom camera shoots. Over the 8 decades since first started, thousands of photographers, videographers, ad agencies and media companies have visited Old Car City USA. Popular news magazine and newspaper companies, like CBS Sunday Morning, the New York Times, the BBC and Georgia Public Television, have made press releases and/or video segments and transmitted it worldwide."
