Taken late in November, 2010 with a Panasonic Lumix LX-3 at Graham Hills Park, Westchester County, NY.

I remember a couple of things about this walk. The first is that I completely underestimated how long the trail was and didn’t take into account how early it went dark at that time of year. I had no idea how far I had to go and it was getting darker by the minute. Finally we (our former dog Jackson and myself) got back to the parking lot just as it went completely dark. Phew! I’ve been much more careful about timing since then as the prospect of blundering around in the woods after dark doesn’t appeal to me.

The second thing I remember is that I was absolutely astonished to come across this car. I’ve come across discarded vehicles before, but never one that was so far into the woods. I’d walked along a narrow trail surrounded by trees. To this day I’ve no idea how whoever abandoned this car got it there, or for that matter why anyone would go to such trouble.
