My favorite cab driver in AGES

cab-driver.jpg I couldn’t get the feather in his hat, nor did I get a shot of the fantastic ring he was wearing — but this guy was great. Dressed to the nines, like a man in the old South, driving a cab which featured Polaroids of some of his favorite passengers with little gold stars all over them. So much better than sharing space with a crazy man on a phone/headset.

    My least favorite cab ride induced motion sickness, and the guy was swearing in French-Algerian to (what I assumed was) a girlfriend, and what I understood of his French was not complimentary to me.

    My favorite cab ride: New York, racing to La Guardia to get a 5am plane I was late for, and the guy is doing a really good “don’t worry, be happy” rendition to calm me down.

    The photo you took is so great. Gets all the elements, and has the perspective of the rider! Did you get his name? What company does he work for?
