    OH wow, I can remember seeing these as a kid!! Oh well….we won’t go there, will we?!! Awesome capture, Yan…love it on a hill with the backdrop of those fabulous stone walls!

  • Thank you very much Wendi for the great comment :) I was quite pleased to come across this old model in that old street. I had to take a picture of it. Take care ;)

    A favorite wee wagon! I have an acquaintance who has a red one in great condition… hope to get some pictures of it when she returns from Florida ~ right now it’s in storage! This is a wonderful image… everything works, from the composition to the coloring. And the car, of course!

  • Thank you for the great comment. I grabbed my camera right away and took that picture while there was nobody around :)
    Thanks again and for the favorite :)
