Cuba 100 - Communal Taxi Pop.
 
Havana has a funny Communal Taxi setup. These old yank motors run on fixed routes most of which end up at Parque Central. You just wait at a junction and enquire whether they are going your way, then jump in! Prices are very cheap, around 30p to ride the route and a great way to interact with the locals.

Hi Beagletorque, love this shot, speed blur through the windows, and the drivers head,the rear passengers head and shoulders, and the front seat passengers forehead reflecting in the rear view mirror. thanks for posting.

Apart from the lack of traffic and waving fists, reminds me of taxis in Athens.......

Nice little cameo.

This is another candidate for black and white, in my opinion. The bright orange / reds to the right are distracting to the eye (we unconsciously gravitate to dominats colours).
It's a good shot, nontheless.

I'm wondering why you processed it to make the taxi interior B&W, yet the view through the windows colour. I think I would have done the opposite, if anything.

Yes, the inverse is better, but what about a monochrome for comparison?
