photoblog image Another day, another taxi

Another day, another taxi

Taxi drivers, waiting under a roadside tree, for business to start for the day.

 

A descendant of the Morris Oxford, the Ambassador has a look like no other car on Indian streets these days.

Good street scene, Ayush.
I suppose the drivers are very proud to own/run them, Ayush!

I think when we finished with the Morris Oxford in the UK, in the very early 1960s, we sold the factory to India & shipped it out..
They are an Icon of the Sub continent. I used to work with colleagues who travelled to India and they said yo had two choices. Open the window and get covered in dust and fumes or keep it closed and roast!

Apart from the taxis, it could be a view from any part of the UK smile

This must be early in the morning - a lovely shot.
Great morning atmosphere. Kind of an interesting juxtaposition between the phone carrier adverts and the classic taxi cabs.
What a lovely shot of life in India, Ayush.
It's rather hazy in the morning.

Hunting for shade I suppose Ayush, something we rarely need to do in UKland.
The gentleman on the bike has no need for their services.

Do customers call for a taxi, Aysuh, or do they have to go to where they are parked like this?
I like this picture , lots of atmosphere. Not only did they take this car over in India but also the Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycles which they have continued to improve and which is now being sold back here in the U.K.
A very competitive way to make a living
And they know how to keep them going! smile
