Waiting for the train

Waiting for the train

I took this picture a few weeks ago in Istanbul. This cars puzzled me a bit at the time. Obviously, it is a french made car, a Citroen 2cv, and it had some writting on it in french. For a few second, I got confused, the usual easy way to spot a french car, is to look at its registration number. The only problem is that the Turkish registration number looks exactly the same as the french one: same police, same material and same color. The last 2 digit of a french registration are the are where the car come form. In Turkey, it is the 2 first one. 34 is the area code for Istanbul, and that is what ticked me in thining that could be a turkish car: It comes from the area 34 (Herault) in france.

You can see more about this car, and why those french guy are there with this car here: http://www.noriaproject.com/

I like this. All the colors compliment each other. The cobblestones go with the tires and the mud, the car sign goes with the railings above and behind and with the sky. The green between the cobblestones go with the trees. I might sound crazy but I see various degrees of 3 different colors, white, green and blue. I even like the border you used. Well done. Thumbs Up!
