Uyuni, Bolivia


The Train Cemetery is full of rusted old trains dating back to the early 20th century, mostly imported from Britain. Uyuni, although now a dusty and somewhat empty town resembling the old wild west, was at one point destined to become a major train hub. When the plans fell through, the train corpses began to rust.


Whitney’s black and white photos are stunning. I love how the rusted old train yard looks even more mysterious in shades of gray.

    1. They definitely benefit from tourism there. It is also the only starting point for the salt flats on the Bolivian side so it makes a nice stop before heading into the middle of nowhere!
