There is a strange tradition in Madeira Island, you can move on the street only if you have a yellow bike or car or.... obviously I'm joking... :o)
this one would be the first of a mini-series about "transportation" ....from my POV.... no artistic shots, just funny snap pictures, ...hope you like it.

Buona la prima, mi piace l'idea del tema sui mezzi di trasporto, in questa il titolo e' un po' stirato ma ci sta' bene, complimenti.

foto molto simpatica, ben congegnata e scattata al momento giusto.

I like the idea of transportation series, I am spending a lot of time (approximately 2.5-3 hours/day) during transportation from home to school. I would like to see transportation through someone else's pov and somewhere else :)
Yellow bike between two yellow cars is a nice detail for composition.
Thanks for sharing
skippy007 (12510) 2008-04-02 14:58
I like the yellow it's very eye catching, well seen and captured, the title is very appropriate. For one second I thought you may be serious about the strange tradition. :o)

Hahahahahahahaha, great compo for sure! Excellent daily life pic!
alaindiveu (210) 2008-04-02 16:10
I like the colors of this picture;
Did you wait for the motorbike coming ? I think so...
I don't agree with you, your picture is good.
jjcordier (76858) 2008-04-02 20:51
Amusant...mais je crois que c'est ton Nikon qui te voir tout en jaune.....

FLASH FLASH FLASH !!! I saw the same yellow motorbike in Istanbul.LOOK at the WORKSHOP :)
Una splendida combinazione per il traffico! Tutto è così armonico . Come se non vi è una marca di concorrenza (Mercedes , Toyota etc)
Grazie per la condivisione :)

Ciao Fabio, bella foto coloratissima e con ottima qualità...ecco dove sono finiti tutti i taxi gialli delle nostre città!
riclopes (35577) 2008-04-03 2:20
Olá Fabio, I would say that this is quite artistic, considering the combination of colors. This bright yellow FG is too much attractive and I like the nice motorbike. Funny thing, the elements in the background are all almost blue. I like it a lot.
velocista (897) 2008-04-03 2:50
olá, this a great capture! did you have to wait a lot to find these three yellow vehicles? and your note is also quite funny! congratulations pedro
delkoo (68) 2008-04-03 4:04
you were there at the right time to capture this yellow scene,
you have played well with light, color and action.
hispic (9652) 2008-04-03 5:38
Captured this pretty scene that a yellow motorscooter appeared in the good timing with the composition that it didn't stick the pillar of street light through his head
Yellow makes me active. Thank you for showing vivid colour shot.
Have a nice day, Hisashi
Vames (4356) 2008-04-03 8:33
ciao Fabio,bello giallo colore ,una bueno momento !
feather (51130) 2008-04-03 12:50
You should transport it to New York and fit in a yellow cab. It looks like you invented a new board game. My husband could play, with his yellow car, but I would have to stay at home; my car is black ;(
Nice one Fabio!
grigand (19567) 2008-04-03 13:46
Ottima idea ben realizzata, tutto questo giallo fà un bel colpo d'occhio, non facile riprendere questi istanti, bravo.
Silvio1953 (123561) 2008-04-04 5:45
Ciao Fabio, potrebbe essere un'idea buona per limitare l'inquinamento oggi circolano le gialle, domani le rosse ecc.., carina e divertente, i trasporti poi sono il mio mestiere, ciao Silvio
bobocortis (15946) 2008-04-04 6:35
Vedo che (anche) tu ami i colori pieni, pastosi, e le geometrie (non mi sfugge l'assoluta orizzontalità della cornice marcapiano della costruzione.
Roba tosta, ci capiamo.
Cricri (107274) 2008-04-04 8:10
L'idée ne serais pas déplaisante, ça rappelle le soleil, un cadrage calculé ou un joli coup de chance, de toute façon elle donne super bien
Gerrit (48262) 2008-04-04 10:58
well succeeded composition. The foreground is well chosen and the scooter is very well positioned.
jhm (140054) 2008-04-05 0:48
Yellow alone this is very nice be found, I understand the joke, in Belgium are yellow cars not popular! I think that nobody a yellow mercedes would buy.
I find this a very nice picture with three yellow elements beside each other.
Very well done, thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,
manada (6239) 2008-04-05 13:33
molto spiritosi titolo e nota, ma al guardare distratto sembra proprio così, eheheh..!
Bravo nel carpe diem!
mursaloglu (8656) 2008-04-05 17:54
Bisogna andarci e farci una visita a queste bellissime isole direi. La tua foto cosi vivace e molto ben colorato dai colori vividi fa questa foto un immagne pregevole ed eccellente. Bravo ihsan
pablominto (53744) 2008-04-07 0:51
Coincidence or what, anyway a good catch!
Eye-catching colours of course, a well framed composition with a lot of action...
bakes888 (18499) 2008-04-07 1:01
Hi Fabio. Is there a monopoly on yellow vehicles in Portugal?? Good use of colour to draw the eye. Well seen and captured. Thanks for sharing.
Cretense (68691) 2008-04-07 3:10
Great idea and realisation, fantastic tight framing and composition! Beautiful yellow tones, really make very eyecatching the result! Congratulations!
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-04-08 10:33
Wonderful POV and vivid colours in this very nice composition. Excellent details and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and greetings
HulyaTaskin (640) 2008-04-09 2:31
I was away for a week; and this photo catched my eye at once :)
Perfetti gialli ? :)
Beautiful timing & result - warm yellow...
All the best,
xuaxo (6846) 2008-04-10 4:13
This is a very nice picture, very well seen and captured.
I guess these Mercedes are the Madeira taxis; unlike in Portugal Mainland, the taxis in Madeira Island are painted this bright yellow. That's why they call them abelhinhas ("little bees").
LUISCOSTA (142) 2008-04-10 13:33
fantastic moment...tree yellow... hee hee hee
kensimage (8561) 2008-04-11 23:08
You made art out of a simple scene here, Fabio, by placing the yellow regions perfectly in the frame, especially the location of the scooter relative to the cars. If you take the top and the bumper of the front car, and continue those lines, you reach the bottom and front of the scooter. Great composition, whether that aspect was intentional or not! Regards, Ken.
veronika (6052) 2008-04-12 6:01
yellow is "my colour" :) And this is a good capture, fresh!
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-04-14 3:07
It is funny to see two Mercedes in front of the Toyota dealer. Because they (the mercs) are both yellow I presume that is the taxis' colour in Funchal. You got a nice set of yellows on the street and also a very relaxed activity behind, on the footpath. The Toyota building looks great with the tiles decoration. Very nice photo work.
jemaflor (85476) 2008-04-16 3:50
Well seen your yellow composition, well balanced with the place of each car and motobike, perfect timing.
ahmetgedikli (25482) 2008-04-16 5:00
Well seen and well captured! Beautiful colors, sharpness and details.
matt_moi (318) 2008-04-17 7:40
Hi Fabio !
Excellent idea and good composition with powerfull yellows.
jusninasirun (17160) 2008-04-21 4:51
Hello Fabio. You are one brilliant street photographer that I would like to learn from. Always managed excellent images through the busyness of the daily life. Stunning sharpness in coordinated yellow. The scooter hits the sweet spot here and very well done. Best regards. Jusni
markgong (2840) 2008-04-23 21:29
Wonderful photo Fabio, well timed and well seen. How long did you wait to get this shot?
johannes68 (3469) 2008-04-28 9:36
great eye-catcher! The skooter - being used as a taxi as well (bringing home young girls for free...)?
faubry (35405) 2008-05-20 5:19
all in yellow.... very good framing and coincidence.. superb
kiks (11749) 2008-05-22 16:01
Hello Fabio, the quality of the image is not perfect but it is very well composed and funny in combination with the title and note. Thanks for the laugh ;-)
CLODO (30597) 2008-12-09 8:33
Well observed those nice yellow cars and scooter. Good photograph eye.
