Retro Taxi - Thematic Photography

I thought I would have to give this week a miss until I found this picture from c17years ago taken on a ladies holiday in Capri.

Taxi on Capri
I don't know whether the doors wouldn't close or whether the ladies got out in a hurry.

I suspect we may see other retro vehicles at Carmi's thematic-photographic-213

Cabs are a fascinating way to travel.

I'd love to hail that taxi! Cool photo Bob..... I can hear it coming around the corner....yes I can....! Seriously I need to get back to work (break time is over) and forget about all these old retro tunes dancing through my head....! Enjoy your week!

Hang on - has that taxi got a green and white striped awning, or is it in an illusion?

I bet the doors wouldn't close!

And you're right...I went with an old car, too. (Not as old as your cab, though.)

Ha! I'm enjoying the old vehicles that are coming to light for this theme - great shot.

@Little Nell - it's no illusion; the awning is real to protect those delicate skins.

What a delicious party of colors and textures. I wouldn't mind going for a few rides on that beauty ;-)

I love the awning they put on that as a roof, very "Fantasy Island" retro.

I'd find myself praying for no rain :)

What a delightful vehicle. Makes me wonder if we wouldn't smile just a little more if we came across more examples like this in our own lives.
