A ride in a vocho taxi

I am back on the road with an assistant, so I can take out my camera whenever I want. Like in this bumpy taxi ride… I got some more nice shots, but that’s gonna be for a final movie (in HD!).

Vochos by night

I’m totally into the Canon 5DII video! I managed to get some shoots that represent Mexican daily life with the vocho really well!

VW Bugshow @Francorchamps

Last Sunday I spend on the other side of our country… hunting beetle cars again, but instead I got hunted by the rain. I am pretty sure I could have captured some nece sceneries demonstrating the passions that Europeans have for the vochos. But I’ll have to find that happiness next time…

VW Beetle – In Memoriam

Today it was 6 years ago that the last VW beetle was produced in the factory in Puebla, Mexico. Here  a few of my pictures during my trip in April as a tribute to these lovely cars.

Green Go!

I was asthonised to see Mexico City last week withou the green beetle taxi’s… Yes, they are all gone, all thousands of them… Here and there you can find a few ones left: “taxi” whiped out with green paint, covered with dust, “for sale”,… Amazing how suddenl, just a few weeks, y a cityscape can change. You can still find some beetle taxi’s, but only painted in the new colors… without colored gas lids, stickers or other flashy decorations. It’s not the same… :(

And I can only think about “gringo”, which means “green go”. The Mexicans yelled this at the Americans in green army uniform during the war…

Sneak preview of the vocho verde

I spend the last week on hunting the green beetle cars with my camera’s… The taxi-hopping goes fine, although it is hard to find decorated ones. And each “taxista” is proud that a European photographer wants to take a picture of their bochito ;)
