car graveyards

Under the expressways surrounding the city are legions of
flooded cars. Homeless people hang out in them, people
steal wheels and other assorted parts of value that would
not rust.

Some of them, people searched for their cars and took what
they could, the rest were broken into, hoods popped or even
sometimes taken. Miles of illicit junkyard.

So many things about this city now remind me of movies.
Dark, cyberpunk, post-apocalypse, zombie films and the like.

I took them a few nights ago, yes. These were the only ones that came out clearly out of fifteen or twenty.

I had been intending to take them for months, and I pass by almost every day, but usually I don't have time to stop at the redlights and lean and take pictures.
