    Reported by:

    Thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars sit idle in the middle of California’s Mojave Desert. Models manufactured from 2009 to 2015 were designed to cheat emissions tests mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Following the scandal, Volkswagen recalled millions of cars. By capturing scenes like this one, I hope we will all become more conscious of and more caring toward our beautiful planet.

    Awesome, just really awesome. I love it. This frame almost feels fake. I agree with Your Shot photographer Anne Boyce who commented, "Starkly impressive... This shot should really be more widely publicized to accentuate the incredible wastes created in modern societies!" I appreciate all the facts and details you included in your caption, which really elevated my intellectual engagement with this frame, and helped me care about the moment you photographed so well. Keep up the great work Jassen.
