Cars is a 2006 American computer-animated comedy-adventure sports film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Set in a world populated entirely by anthropomorphic cars and other vehicles, it features voices by .... Cheech Marin ....
It's the latino way of thinking "car"
I was in the tram going to watch and take pictures of the boats Pen Duick moored along the quays, and preparing to go out at the next stop, when I saw this colorfull advert with a seated man in front of it, I jumped outside as the doors were closing.
Now, I have to come back here and visit this exhibition!

Well spotted and shot, you must be glad you took a quick decision to get off that tram!
These kind of moments with an oblivious "model" that stands out on contrasting background are photographers dream and you used it very well.
To me, it looks more NY than Bordeaux but I haven't been to either of those cities so it may just be my stereotype way of seeing the world. In any case, great work.

Hello Claude. Images in the public domain. Everything is reality - and yet it is a mix of people and advertising. These photos are amazing again and again.

I enjoy your eye for street photography. Finding interesting juxtapositions of posters and people is one of your talents. This is good compositionally as the plain blue at the bottom half is a good bg for the seated man. He is perfectly placed and as a comic expression on his face. Like all good street shots it leaves us to guess or make up a story -what is he reacting to on his mobile phone?

Hello Claude - Excellent... I love the colour and the way you have balanced the 'artwork' with the man and his cell. Well spotted and well jumped!

Je crois que celui du bas aimerait bien se retrouver dans l'image du haut. Surtout qu'il semble bien seul avec son portable.

Another candid street scene, very well seen and very well taken. And very quick of you to jump off that 'bus just at the right moment!
This young man might not be having a Chicano dream but he is, like almost all young people nowadays, staring at his mobile 'phone. But it's amusing too that he is seated there, not looking particularly happy, while exotic people in the poster above him are having fun by the sea in glorious sunshine.
A brilliant photograph, so well caught and of excellent technical quality too!

you went to great lengths to get this image jumping off the tram - that's dedication! Well composed and great colours - I like it!

yes, this is certainly the time where that all important human presence pays off greatly.
of course the bright colors kinda help too :)
cool post, we won't see this one again!

Une très belle photo à partir d'une bonne observation.
La scène colle admirablement avec l'affiche.

I re-read your intro today...
Indeed the freshness of this site is not there anymore...more about postcards and back patting. I now post in some other sites, but the back patting is the same...except for a site called Kujaja, I find that the photos posted are of a very high quality & they have a dedicted site ffor street photography...just the right place for you!
This is a nice street photograph which shows contrasting emotion levels...one in the poster and one depicted by the guy
Coming back to your intro...(2102-10-11: 1000 pictures (still remaining...) ...isn't it a bit too futuristic? ;-)

I love the strong and bright colours of your picture mixing the huge picture (or paint) with our daily (and virtual) life.
Have a nice week !
