IMAGES taken during a photographer’s tour of abandoned railway depots and car cemeteries around the world have been put together in a book to raise money for a homelessness charity.

David McKeran has covered thousands of miles over the last three years visiting countries including France, Spain, Cuba and Namibia to photograph derelict cars, rail engines and boats.

His trip started at the Bowling harbour boat graveyard on the Clyde. Proceeds from the book, Rack and Ruin, will go to Glasgow City Mission.

McKeran, who runs David McKeran Photography and is a partner in Matrix Business Growth Consultants in Glasgow, said:

“I was told about the boat graveyard in Bowling and found

the rotting wood, rusting metal and twisted shapes provided the scope for some dramatic images.”
