The most common and one of the cheapest means of transportation both in urban and rural setting, the jeepney's root can be traced back to the old millitary U.S.jeeps used during the Japanese occupation in the Philippines.

Today, all sorts of colorful decals and accessories make these national pride attractive to both tourists and local people.

Love the colors and the Jeep. A big 9 from me.

i gave this an 8. generally, i like it very much; it's immediately striking, bold, bright and colourful, and the car itself is rich in character, kitsch and cultural value. the only real criticism is that the angle is a bit too head-on for the unitiated to work out it's a bus, and the background is really bland and doesn't go well with the outlandish nature of the vehicle. there's also the lack of humans, which in this case is a bit sad because i always think of these things as a social type thing. but it's still a lovely shot, and so unashamably happy that it's infectious. so 8.

What a fun-colored find! The white border was a good choice here, and the clarity of the colors stand out brilliantly.
