Monday, Tuesday.


There are so many taxies in London, countless really, I decided  I am going to show a few more of all the ones I saw with names on them.

Hello dear Riet! I love the color in the streets of London! I am so HAPPY to read that there are many taxis there because if I ever visit London I would definitely have to use them because the idea of having to drive on the other side of the car scares me to pieces :)!!!
I love seeing all the beautiful things you captures while in London. What a wonderful thing for you to share!
much love...

I guess they do a good bit of advertising don't they? They are similar in shape as the old taxis when they were all black and more somber looking! And that wasn't that long ago, our kids were little ... Such fun pictures to behold! Thanks for posting them. Along with the red double decker buses they make quite a riot of color!

Pondside said...

That was fun! I don't know if I prefer the old black ones or these colourful ones!

This is a fun post, Riet! I love all the different colorful taxis! Wonderful mosaic! Have a happy week!

Ohhh wat een vrolijkheid
lieve Rietje, enig al die uitgedoste
taxi's. De keer dat ik in London
ben geweest, HEEL LANG geleden
toen reden er alleen maar van die hele oude antiek zwarte taxi's.

Die waren trouwens ook heel erg mooi en gaven een speciale sfeer,
maar dit is toch een stuk fleuriger allemaal.

Wens je een fijne week,
gelukkig wordt het wat koeler...

Veel liefs,
Josephine

An amazing collection of colourful taxis in London! They must add so much interest to the London street.

The red buses really stand out, so much nicer than a dull colour.
I like the huge lion sculpture, I'd be sure to have my photo taken with it.

They are all so cute and different. I think ours are big...we carry too much luggage, I guess! Love the bright colors! Is that a new banner? It's beautiful!

Betty said...

I never thought taxis could be pretty, but you have shown many that are. Thanks for sharing.

Jim said...

Most interesting.

What a nice slice of London life. How fun to see so many different ones.

Hi Riet,

Love the double decker red against the creamy cement background of the buildings. Such movement in your images - go, go, go!

Thank you for sharing these images Riet - I've only ever known London cabs to be black. Doubtless these splashes of colour will brighten some dreary days (while also helping the income of the cabbies through advertising)!

Awesome way to advertise your company. The photos are great. Have a wonderful week:)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh how fun! The colorful ones are different from when we were there.

Vee said...

Clever way to advertise. They are a lot nicer than the ones we see. Fun subjects for your mosaic!

Lynne said...

What fun they are! I wonder if they are reimbursed for the advertising. I am sure this is true!

Lorrie said...

I would have never imagined taxis in London to be so colorful and painted with names on them. Interesting. I loved the glimpses of the buildings along the streets, too.
Thank you for sharing.

What cute little taxis!

Willy said...

Hej Riet, wat leuk dat je daar zo op gelet hebt. Zo te zien zijn er heel veel verschillende. Mooie collage heb je er van samengesteld. Fijne week, lieve groet

afanja said...

Die taxi's leveren een mooi kleurrijk straatbeeld op.

SmilingSally said...

I had no idea that London had so many different taxies.
I enjoyed the blue ones.


Have a good Blue Monday, Riet.

Jill Harrison said...

I love the way they have been painted and named. They really stand out.
Have a great week.

Karen said...

They sure add a lot of colour to the streetscape!

There was ralk about putting ads like this on NYC taxis! I'm not sure it was met with approval. Some NYC buses had ads, however. Happy Monday to you, Riet! I hope you are enjoying the summer!

Gary said...

Great view of the Taxi's. There are none here. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Beep. beep. You have very cute taxis in London. They look like they are gas efficient, too. Looking at your photos just makes me want to come over and experience it all in person. Beep, beep.
Don't Be a Hippie
