I discovered Pete's Import Garage in Atlanta totally by accident one day as I was strolling my 2 year old grandson around the neighborhood entertaining him by playing his favorite song at the moment- "On the Floor" by J-Lo. Atlanta neighborhoods are a mix of old, new and derelict as are Pete's cars. Apparently, from reading the reviews online, Pete can repair any car, old or new and at a good price. However, I'm not sure about this early 50's model Ford in the photos below. It has definitely seen better days and I'm sure there are some stories to tell if these old rusted parts could talk.The photos were shot with my Canon 5D Mark 11, a 17-40 mm L lens and processed in Photoshop CS5 using a high contrast action from Scott Kelby's book, The Adobe Photoshop CS5 Book for Digital Photographers. Across the Street Taxi was shot a few months ago with a Leica D-Lux-5, again on a stroll around the neighborhood. The images though not shot properly for HDR, were processed as a single file in HDR Efex Pro.
Rusted Through and Through!
Drive it Like You Stole It
Across the Street Taxi-Cheap Ride!
Still has its Headlights Though!
I'm always on the look out for old grungy cars, so stay tuned!
