parking garage

Abandoned Mercedes (Horo), Irving Blvd., Downtown, Dallas, Texas. Winter, 2014.


There’s this Mercedes that’s been sitting alone on one of the upper levels of the parking garage at work. Though I’ve been with this company some years now, I’ve just discovered this thing. Someone that noticed me checking it out said that it’s been there the dozen years or more that they’ve been coming here.

The tires are flat. And, it has a thick coat of dirt all around it to where you can’t even see inside. Curiously, I didn’t see any fingerprints; so people have kept their hands off of it.

A vanity plate spells “Horo.” Someone obviously loved this car enough to presumably name it(?).

(Maybe I’ll wait ‘til afterhours to pop the trunk).
