|So what happens to the Mercedes Benz vehicles in Europe when they get old? They get driven to North African countries and turns in to taxis.|
We were told in Morocco that the most Moroccan expats who work in Europe will buy a old Mercedes and bring it back to the country and convert it to a taxi. Most of the taxis that we saw in Fez and Marrakech were these old cars.

Great light in this Daily scene shot of this line-up of Mercedes Taxis. Beautiful star shaped reflections of the windscreens. I like the activity in the street.
Well done for this neat presentation.
My best regards,
The daily life scene is well captured with amazing light and exposure, Sunil!
Good sharpness and well caught details in this picture.
Colors are natural and contrasts within the image are fantastic.

'New york, New York....so good they named it twice'
Great capture, I di wonder where they went, now we know.
Looks like they are fussy on the colour too, Great notes and composition, tfs
You have very interesting composition, always different and interesting. You handle well the light and you seem very well informed. I like the sharpness and I like your "view" of plaes very much

I haven't seen so many Mercedes of the 80s at one place before. It's a big WOW. I think BMW's would also be going somewhere because I don't see older BMW in Europe either haha. A beautiful scene from Northern Africa. Nice documentary shot. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
