Mother Nature Is Reclaiming These Abandoned Automobiles And We Just Can’t Look Away

There’s something entrancing about watching man-made objects be pulled apart by the forces of nature. The gradual destruction of these vintage vehicles by the elements is beautiful documented by photographer Wayne Stadler. In his Flickr album “Automobilia,” Stadler captures the quietly lovely and oddly poignant decay of retro automobiles across the country, and the results are beyond gorgeous.

It’s not hard to imagine how stunning these automobiles must have once been. To see more beautiful shots of vintage cars by Stadler, check out the full album here.
