Exploring abandoned buildings is really fun. Exploring an abandoned junkyard is even more fun. This junkyard had a lot of old cars and farm equipment. It looks like it hadn’t been touched in like 20 years. Its winter, so it was cold and dead outside and there was a lot of junk and trash. I tried to capture some of the things I found interesting.

Most of what was left were antique trucks and tractors. It was hard to get some really good photos because there was so much overgrowth and junk everywhere. I mainly tried to focus on things I could create some good compositions with. The old blue stripped Chevy truck in the photo above was really cool looking to me.

There was also an empty barn and an empty mobile home with a few things scattered

  • Hi,
    I live in Fort Worth, but I'm planning a photoshoot with a model who lives in Terrell. I'm not familiar with the area and would like some suggestions such as the one in this post. I'm looking for something industrial (warehouse, sawmill, etc.) but I'm open to most things.
    Thank you!

    • Hello Joel! Terrell has changed a lot in the past few years, a lot of the old buildings there are gone. Any decent place to shoot will be off of highway 80. One area I do remember that was a fun place to shoot was under the overpass that goes right over the town near downtown and there’s an old brick building next to it with some interesting textures on the wall. If you drive around a bit venturing to the north and south of 80 on the east side of downtown, you might find some interesting places around there. The west side is pretty built up and full of chain restaurants. And I’ve never found anything interesting off of highway 20.
