Lucky Photo

Among the taxi talismans in this cab is this image of the driver's own bright pink taxi. To create a happy dreamlike feeling in the picture, the driver cut out a photo of his cab and collaged it on a background of sunflowers. In a city where a majority of taxi drivers rent their cabs, this cabbie is celebrating his ownership. I guess it's not that unusual for automobile lovers to hang up photos of cars, but in this case the taxi driver uses the picture to literally worship his cab and to ward off bad luck.
