|1956 Chevy Bel Air At Cameron's Dairy - Tehachapi, California|
I drove by the abandoned and burnt Cameron Dairy Ranch today and I noticed that the rusted 1956 Chevy Bel Air was gone. I photographed this place back in January. The classic car was there then, and now it's gone.
Cameron's Dairy is a place that I'd wanted to photograph for some time. I'd hesitated because I had read in a local newspaper that the property owner was planning to crack down on trespassers. So I waited. And waited. I waited years.
One morning before sunrise I decided to explore and photograph the place. It was quite fascinating! I'm glad that I finally decided to stop in. If I had waited four months longer I wouldn't have been able to capture the photograph above. That image is one of my favorites, and it also was published in a magazine.
