The Lambretta

By wenzu78  
Once again I was mesmerized by the beauty of the narrow sreets of our old and history-laden city.

As soon as I've seen this cute 50s style scooter, I immediately made my descent to have a go at it. Sadly there wasn't much vibrance to the surroundings, thus my mono conversion.

But I believe it works just fine.

Next time I'll try and grab the tripod along (the street will surely be there, the scooter I'm not sure though Wink)


Hope you like and I always look forward to your C&C ....


Cheers

Hy there ... re the windows, we call those 'Pregnant Windows',. and they are a part of our rich tradiition as regards facade customization. Wink

A beautifully composed and captured scene. The mono so in-keeping with the whole ambiance.

I like the mono conversion, in fact I have just seen version number one, it's enough to love it Smile

Nothing shows we are 60 years later from the day the particular scooter was made.

Classic in every detail.

Bravo!
