Picture Postcards: Bucharest carriage


Have a gander at this beautiful carriage photo taken by our contributor, Carmen Cristal, in Romania. She says, “This little carriage decorated with flowers is not a normal means of transport in Romania (we can find carriages only in small villages or they are used for tourism purposes) . The picture was taken in September 2010 at an annual event called Bucharest Days. The event took place in the neighbourhood of People‘s House in Bucharest and included a traditional fair, music, dance and carriage rides along the boulevard.”

Picture Postcards: Cars in Japan

Priest blessing a car

Happy New Year to all you Pocketcultures followers!

This month we are looking at means of transport in different countries here on Picture Postcards. I’m starting things off with a snap I took in Japan of a priest blessing a car. This was at Hakusan Shrine in Niigata, Japan.

If you have a photo of some form of transport in your country that you would like to contribute, please consider placing it in our Picture Postcards of the World Flickr group. We’d love to see your pics!
