I'm posting some pictures of my trip, Ben was asking for them. So I decided to post especially those photo's that I took with Ben on my mind.
Two old Fiats 500, I think the blue one was 42 years old, and a two cylinder motor?? Is that possible? Did I remember that well? Those of the blue one are not very good, as that road was so busy, that I got a little nervous over there. The light was less than ideal too. The man was very proud of his car. I think it was taken in Viterbo.
In Rome, we just cycled around a bit, and found this beautiful red Fiat, with an original number plate. There I had more time and there was no traffic at all.
The blue one is taken with the 105, the red one with the 28mm
WOW - Rinie - WOW. That blue one is very unusual - don't see many in that colour. He's kept it beautifully - except for that pink furry animal he's got on the dashboard. I can't tell if that's a cover on the sterring wheel or he's had it replaced. And it's great he posed for you. I'm starting to think there'd be a great photos series in fiat 500s and their owners - like people do for pets.
And the red one, wow....and in Rome......mmmmmm....the crumbling walls, the cobbled streets....Roma.
I love them Rinie - thank you so much.
You're welcome, Ben! You've been on my mind on quite a few occasions because of those Fiats.
Certainly the red one was my favorite as well, but I liked the blue one too.
Jaap was ahead of me and waiting for me an talking to the owner, (who was very proud), and suggested I should take photo's. I wanted to, but it was scaring busy there. So I was sloppy, and did not want to take time to put on the 28mm.
Glad, you like them. Thes are the only ones I took of Fiats 500. Jaap mentioned you more than once as I had told him you like Fiats 500, but there was not always time or opportunity to stop. Or sometime I just did not feel like stopping, especially when the way was uphill, and you're out of your rhythm when you stop. Sorry ... ;-)
