Talbot Motor Wreckers

It's an inevitable fact of life that cars die. There are simply too many of them to keep them all going; it's sad to see a mkII Escort or a VW camper returning to dust, but if everyone still drove them then they wouldn't be rare and interesting, would they?
I find scrapyards like this fascinating. You may well be aware of Horopito in New Zealand, which has become rusthunter mecca for the travelling photographer. That part of the Southern Hemisphere is particularly good for prolonging the decline of old metal; whereas scrapyards in the UK see cars dissolving in the onslaught of rain, snow and sea salt, inland scrapyards in New Zealand and Australia tend to reamin as vast, rolling monuments to transport. The one you see here is in Ballarat, Victoria in south-eastern Australia - a near-endless vista of clustered relics, plundered for parts and left to decompose. Strangely beautiful, isn't it?
