Lonely Cars in New York by Langdon Clay (Atlas Obscura)

Atlas Obscura is always a good place to lose yourself which, I guess, is either ironic or appropriate given the title of the page (I’m not smart enough to figure out which.)  And just popped up in my feed is this rather splendid set of photos of Lonely Cars in New York which were taken by Langdon Clay in the 1970s.  Using a format that no-one uses any more (Kodachrome) he photographs a world that, certainly in New York, now only exists in the minds of retro movie makers.

They are quite striking and quite brilliant.
