Red Cuban Cars and Selfie

Two of my PEI Photography Club colleagues are in this first photo. They tell me that someone came to deliver two flats of eggs to the Volkswagen as it sat in the middle of the road.

I don’t know if this is the same pink taxi as in the one that won me a prize in the PEI Photo Show in May, but it could be.

On the first day of our photo workshop, before we left our accommodations, our tour leader challenged us to shoot ‘selfies’ throughout the week. Here is one of my favourites.

This is my last post about cars in Cuba.  That’s not to say there won’t be motorcycles or cars in the background!

Another colour-themed collection of car photos.  Some would argue that the photo below belongs in the green post from last week, but to round out the blue numbers, I’ve put it here!

Cuba Day 4 – Central Havana February 2016 – Taxi stop 

The young taxi driver was very proud of his 1948 Plymouth which he was using to taxi people from Havana to Vinales. He was quite willing to pose for portraits but one of my colleagues kept getting in the way so I had to make do with this shot.

Manhattan Tuesday 42.5 – Taxi!

Tomorrow we are traveling by plane to Calgary, Alberta. We arrive at 3:00 am our time the next day – though it will only be midnight in Calgary.

I hope there are as many taxis outside the airport as we saw in New York City. We will definitely be looking for one to whisk us to our hotel.

The next day we will be picking up a rental car and touring through the Rockies and the Okanagan Valley and on to Vancouver.

I have prescheduled a number of posts from trips to Manhattan and Cuba while we are away. But I will be taking lots of photos.

Bon voyage.

Havana Balcony iPhone Photos

The Rooms Across the Street

The Rooms Across the Street – Shot with Hueless on iPhone 6

I took very few pictures with my iPhone when in Cuba because I had two other cameras with me and was indeed there for a Havana Photo Workshop.  One morning I used the iPhone from the balcony to take some early morning shots.

Rather than stop at a Taxi stand, like the bicycle rickshaws are doing in last week’s iPhriday post, the taxis cruise in a set loop until hailed, when they pull over and pick up a fare, or drop one off.
