Early Morning Jeepney

Messed up the white balance a bit on this one. I selected a tungsten setting in an early morning setting, hence the colder tones here. Taken from the back of another jeepney in front which was a good angle to get following jeeps, taking office workers to their destination. Most of the destinations [inscribed in black on the yellow] are unfamiliar to me except for Baclaran, which I believe is someplace close to the Ninoy International Airport of Manila.

They certainly add colour to the tarmac, don't they, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Right. Never a dull moment with these around
They must be such a joy to see everywhere!
Ayush Basu: For me, yes.... for locals, I suppose mixed feelings smile

Presumably these Jeepneys are built locally?
Ayush Basu: Yes, engines and some parts are typically from Isuzu and the bodies are built by local motors in regional workshops

What a great car. Love all the details on it. It turned out to be a great shot (even after you mentioned the white balance being messed up)
Ayush Basu: I decided to post this as I liked the head on view since I was in the rear of another jeepney travelling ahead of this one seen here.
Great colours here Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you Fred

I remember thes jeepney from my visit in 1976
Ayush Basu: I wonder if much has changed since then with respect to the jeepney
They certainly decorate them up.
Ayush Basu: They bring to mind the decorated trucks of northern India/Pakistan

She is a beauty and I think the tungsten doesn't really matter.
Ayush Basu: I am glad you think so Louis, thanks for the visit and the comment
That is some vehicle Ayush
Ayush Basu: With some surprising hauling capacity
Very colorful and detail car, Ayush I love it!
That is one intense vehicle.

It looks very looked after (well, relatively!) especially as it;s locally-made. Can the driver actually see where he is going.

I continue to be fascinated by these Philippino vehicles, Ayush
The owners obviously have great pride in their vehicles!
A beauty with all these colours.
Fine capture!
