Taxi

The first of the month theme day has come around again, and this time we spotlight taxis.

Yellow Cab is a large national chain cab company with franchises from California to Virginia. It’s commonly seen in Alexandria. This one is in a hurry to who knows where in the Chirilagua neighborhood.

    Looks like it’s got a bit of speed up that taxi.. must be in a hurry to get a passenger!

    Dear MarieMcc, I just notice the links to your blog are pointing to the wrong address; it points alexandriadailyphoto.com instead of alexandriadailyphoto.wordpress.com and that is even true on your own post. Somebody sabotage your entry, they don’t want you to win the first price. 😉

  3. Rudy Girón says:

    Prize, I meant. Sorry.

    les taxis jaunes americains, qui m’ont fait rever pendant des annees. jusqu’a mon 1er voyage a new york, et là ils ont perdus de leurs charmes. le 1er taxi que j’ais pris pour aller de l’aeroport de JFK a mon hotel, j’ais bien cru que j’allais mourir cent fois ;o)

    its almost as long as a limo, plenty of room !

  6. And something we definitely don’t see many of here in Paris is the stationwagon. How convenient for carrying things.

    P.S.
    I noticed the address change that Rudy mentions too, but have updated the list of taxi theme day participants with your correct address on my blog.

    Hi Marie, I also noticed the wrong address as Rudy said but don’t worry, I have updated my blog with the correct one 🙂
    Anyway, it’s a big and convenient taxi! How nice.

    this one is by far the longest taxi i have seen today, great shot.

    Well, I finally went to my own links to find you! Yes, I also have a yellow cab photo; it seems to be a pretty popular colour.! Have a good Sunday!

    Marie, great background for your station wagon taxi! What church is that?
    I also noticed that your link was wrong in our link list. Also, when I visit your site through links from other CDP blogs or your own page, the old address is there rather than the new one. It does link to the new one, but makes for another step to get to you.

  11. Big and comfortable, I like this taxi. It is great to see so many different taxis all over the world. I didn’t post one myself (sorry about that) but I have recommended my visitors to take a look at this wonderful monthly theme.

  12. Denton says:

    Lots of luggage room in this taxi … even with the address mix-up you received a lot of messages. This speaks highly of the effort everyone made to see your post.

  13. Helen says:

    WOW!! A station wagon taxi. I have never seen one before.

  14. […] When I was composing the taxis’ theme day in my mind, I wanted rain in my photo… I got rain! I thought rain added “drama” into the otherwise plain taxis. Don’t you think? Given that what i’ve written about taxis back in April is still valid, am gonna take a short cut by just copy & pasting it here again … “Unlike the taxis in Edinburgh , ours are plain as can be. There are no regulations that say taxis must be of certain car model. The only standardisation are the stickers on the doors and the usual light box on the top. Hence, taxis here can be 4 wheel-drive or even station wagons.” Click numbers below to get to know others’ taxis around the world :- 1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10 -11 -12 -13 -14 -15 -16 -17 -18 -19 -20 -21 -22 -23 -24 -25 -26 -27 -28 -29 -30 -31 -32 -33 -34 -35 -36 -37 -38 -39 -40 -41 -42 – 43 – 44 – 45 – 45- 46- 46- 47- 48- 49- 50- 51- 52 […]

  15. Hey, that’s my buddy George Baker in that Yellow Cab! Best cab driver in Alexandria — go George!
