[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken about a year ago in a much warmer place than it is here today (20 degrees F here) right after a quick, but heavy tropical downpour.
These taxis take on on tours of the beautiful island and this particular one was squeezed in amongst some more traditional cabs.
The driver can be seen waiting patiently for we tourists to stop hiding from the rain and get into his vehicle.
I was particularly interested in what one needs to do to be relegated to the back most seat. :o)
Shot in RAW, some level set and sharpening done to convert to jpeg and resize for posting here.
Seemed to go well with the "Transportation" theme of today.

Hi Wilt,
God observation in Dominica, special contribution to the Friday Theme. It's funny to see this vehicle, fine daily life snapshot. :) But I guess, it's a life-time experience to travel by. :)
Best regards,

NICE POV good capture
regards bryan

Ha. Echoes of Philippines' transport in this, with its colourful signage and anywhere-you-can seating, I like it. Interesting to note that they sit on the right and drive on the left, I didn't realise that.

Shame about the tailgating van, it has spoiled your view somewhat, but overall an interesting shot.


A very interesting shot Wilt. It reminds me in the Philippines. I like the striking colours of this vehicle. It would have been nice to look at without that van.
