Cuban Two-Tone Cars Take Two

Since we looked at two-toned cars in my post last Thursday –  here are a few more.  I wonder if this colour trend will make a comeback in my lifetime.

Most of the cars below are taxis on their regular circuit up Calle Neptuno.  Taken from a balcony.

Havana Cuba Day 1 - taken at dusk. You can see the reflection of the sunset bouncing off the pavement in front of the first car.

Cuban is nothing if not colourful, but sometimes the variety and intensity of the colour is overwhelming. Like not being able to see the forest for the trees.

Cuba Day 3 - This car was red and white an the building in the background was blue and one guy was wearing purple....

The photo below was the last one I took after a long tiring morning and mid afternoon of shooting and it was one of my favourites from the day.

This car was purple and white but the surrounding colours were distracting. I love it in B+W

  1. These are so good .. What a great time you had with your camera! I think two tone are brilliant .. is it because of they are of yesteryear? Great photography 😃

    Fascinating. It looks like you’ve travelled back to about 1960. 🙂

      Well life, as we North American consumers know it, stopped in 1959 when the Cuban revolution took place. There are Russian remnants from the intervening years, but they too pulled out in 1991 with the demise of the Soviet Union. So the American cars date from the 1940’s and 1950’s and the Russian cars (not nearly so photogenic) from the 1980’s.

  3. As usual . . . . terrific!

      I was down your way last week (Sept 12-14 & again on the 18th to the Aquarium); meant to ask for tourist advice but got plenty elsewhere and there was so much to see and so little time.
