Series on the CITY of CAMPINAS - State of SÃO PAULO - The SOUTHEASTERN Region of BRAZIL - THE CITY WHERE I'VE BEEN LIVING FOR MORE THAN 28 YEARS (SINCE JANUARY/1986) - #098 !
After being sedentary for 3 years (before I used to go jogging almost everyday, for 1h or 1h30min/day, 10km/day) and my doctor telling me that I'm getting old (you're kidding!) and my heart is not as good as it used to be, last week I started going for a fast walk for 1 hour in the morning! For two days, I took my camera with me and took some pictures around my neighboord in the morning!
Nearby a small bodywork and painting, mechanical and electrical work business, I found those old decaying cars and thought it'd be a good subject for a picture of local colors!
VW Beetle was very common here in Brazil, specially in the 70's & 80's. Here, it's called "FUSCA", "FUSQUINHA", "FUSCÃO" and even "BESOURO" or "BESOURINHO" (Beetle).
My father had four of them and his white model from the early 70's was one of my favorite cars of his, that brings me sweet memories of my early childhood!
Behind them, there are abandoned rails that were supposed to be our most modern public means of transportation back in the mid-80's here in CAMPINAS! Of course, it hasn't worked, most of its structure was stolen and it's become a place for thieves and drug addicts in some parts of it! Still, we depend on buses to go everywhere in this one million inhabitant city, considered one of the wealthiest in the Country (and it is)!

Beauty amidst ugliness.
You have captured the milieu magnificently.

These VW Beetles have seen better days, but still retain a certain charm. One of the most popular cars ever made and one with a long history dating from before the Second World War. Interesting daily life capture, nicely lit and with pleasant warm tones.

you have shown the contrast between the old and the new perfectly with the scrapped beetles making an interesting subject in the FG and the towering sky scrapers behind.
Clarity is first class.
Warm regards Les.

On doit être dans un quartier de Sao Paulo que les touristes hésitent à envahir avec cette clôture grillagée qui sépare de la belle vile moderne au loin. Le royaume de la voiture en morceaux.

A gorgeous image, reflection of everyday life in many cities, abandoned or damaged cars .... or pending repair? .... background image a good perspective, in contrast to traditional small houses and large buildings to be lifted into place.
Very good color, perfect lighting and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.

A temp graveyard for those junkies and goldmine perhaps to some which is a very rich business to be in actually, I am sure this provides good subject depicting the impression of endless rows of rusties, the paint and color repeated pattern etc. A street shot with stories to tell, Great shot, Congrats

uno scatto molto originale, come originali sono queste due auto, sia per la loro storia, sia per come sono ridotte.
A questo mondo c'è proprio si tutto....

even if they´ve seen better days,they still so attractive and for sure very picturesque for photographers.But as much as the Bettles itself I like the scenery around with so delightful BG of Soa Paulo´s skyline.Also the light and the way you utilized it makes the image so pleasant to us.
Wish You a nice day
macjake (71053) 2014-02-19 14:56
so these are the cars you're talking about :)
when you see cars like this, its common to have the drugs, thieves, drugies, all in the same area - perfect for photography haha
if you're safe that is :)
VW Bettle cars are probably one of the most popular cars in the entire world - they're everywhere.
its fun to see the city views in the bg which you posted as well.
good collection of junk!

These are well liked cars through out the world, here the youngster do them up and cruise around the towns music blaring trying to pull the girls.
Great image of these cars waiting for restoration.
Supers colours, well managed and presented.

The angled diagonal pov across the screen from bottom left to top right adds both dynamism and perspective and the old vw's provide interesting fg focal points. Good sharpness and I like the warm cold color contrast in the bg between the yellow red buildings and the blue sky. Tfs!

nice to see this type of cars so famous
many years ago But in our days if
they have been repaired they also
have the same interest
very sad to see abandoned or damaged
cars you have shown the contrast
between the old and damaged with the
new in the background

Hi Neyvan,I guess that in Brazil you can still see these fabulous cars,in Germany you see them only in oldtimer clubs,restored in top condition but expensive,
well seen and captured!
thanks for sharing,

Je suis assez fan de ce type de cliché. Ce n'est pas évident de tirer parti de ce sujet mais c'est intéressant de le montrer. Je crois que le Brésil à était le dernier pays à produire ce type de voiture.
Merci pour le partage et bonne fin de week-end.
