PHOTOBLOG: All about vehicles (not what you think)

I was browsing through my gallery looking for inspiration on what to write here and I noticed I have photos of cars saved throughout the years. It may be taken on my walks or while traveling.

Be warned. This is a photoblog so expect lots of photos.

During my jog in our town, I usually take the state university campus route just like every other joggers/walkers do every morning. The campus is open for joggers/walkers at 5:00 a.m.

I always pass by this old jeep in front of the museum.

This is mode of transportation was brought by the Americans during World War II. After the war, these were left behind.

As a true Filipino, we make the most of everything. These were then recycled. The body was made longer so as to carry more passengers. Read more about the history of jeepneys here.

This is how jeepneys look these days. They are colorful, bigger and better. These were jeepneys taken at PNR Compound. I like this because of the colorful jeepneys match the mural by Venazir Martinez, a local artist.

This is how the inside of a jeepney looks like. It's like a long bus. This was taken pre-pandemic. When pandemic hit, partitions of plastic cover were required. Before they would cram passengers but now they lessen the number of passengers for safety.

This is one of the major public utility vehicles that you see all throughout the country.

When our relatives visited the country for the first time, they all wanted to ride a jeepney. Of course we let them and they enjoyed it!

A group of Volkswagen owners here in the city sometimes display their cars whenever they have the chance. The photos above were taken at Session Road when it was closed to vehicles. The owners parked their cars there for the public to admire, take photos of and with it.

Pendong!

When we see a Beetle, we would say Pendong! or for us here Boks! (from Volkswagen) at the same time hitting the one beside you. This is how we entertain ourselves back when we were kids. We had jeepney shuttles that would take us from school to home and vice versa. We can still opt to ride the public jeepneys but most of the time we ride the shuttle. Along the way, kids would hunt for Pagong (or turtle because the shape of a Volkswagen is like a turtle). One must be quick and have a sharp eye. The first one to spot a Pagong will hit the others. Some gently but you know with kids, we get rowdy.

Pre-pandemic, float parade is a common sight whenever there are festivals here in town and in the city. These were the float parade during the Adivay in La Trinidad. Each municipality had their floats and these floats represent what every town has to offer. I can't remember now who won but this was the last Adivay I attended before pandemic.

These were books that we picked up in one of the schools here in the city. These books will find their way to the mountains of Kibungan to schools that lack books. I just helped carry and load them. My brother and his team delivered these. It was part of their outreach program to provide whatever they can that will help the communities there.

During our night escapades with family, we came across this ice cream truck in Camp John Hay. Unfortunately, they were already closing for the night so we were unable to try their ice cream.

Saw these "heads" on top of a shop while on my walk hunting for a cafe. This is just one of the shops here that is like that.

Would you trust the dentist if this is his/her clinic? This is parked along the road in strawberry farm. It's like a sore thumb sticking out. What's more, there are lots of rubbish around and under it. This is like a prop for an apocalyptic movie.

This was parked along BAPTC still at strawberry farm one morning when I went for a jog there. Animal skull is a common decoration at home but sometimes it is used as an accessory in cars just like this one. Even the way it was secured is stylish.

This one has a spare tire but will it fit? I did not notice this right away and when I did, I whipped out my phone and took a photo.

Here is a bonus for you.

I see this a lot. I guess some guys decide to display it for the world to see instead of wearing them and using it.

Maybe could a reason why some of these happened:

Wherever you are, be drive safe out there.

Your lives matter. Our lives matter. We all matter.

These photos were taken over the years maybe within a three-year period of time and it had been in my phone for a long time. I remember back in one of the blogging site I joined, there is a theme for vehicle photography. This is one of the reasons why I have photos of vehicles in my phone and sort of developed the habit.

Thanks again for dropping by and taking time to appreciate and support.

At first I thought any photos you might share would JUST be of cars, or let's just say vehicles. Because a lot of the pictures weren't cars at all, but trucks and utility vehicles, buses and commercial vans.

Either way, I was glad you did it the way you did. Either some of the vehicles in the picture added a sense of 'art,' or were simply interesting to look at.

Thanks for sharing.

Very good all, I was surprised to see that we have several things in common, I am also from Venezuela, where I live Jeeps are still used as transportation for the mountainous areas. When we were kids we played with the color of the Volskwagen, we would also hit each other when we saw one, here is a jeep with those testicles. I have an '81 volskwagen, it is deteriorated but the engine still runs.

My great friend, how are you?

What beautiful photographs, I love the variety of vehicles in your country, but above all that use Jeep as taxis or buses, for a long time in Venezuela (my country) they were used in rural areas to transport people because it was difficult to access to those populations with normal buses. However, it is interesting that they are still in your country and in very good condition, I was surprised by the truck with those hanging testicles, without a doubt those are the first to crash Hahaha God people make up some things, thanks for all these photographs and for always show us a bit of your country, greetings

Lol! Those balls may crash but they'll be fine :D There was a proposal to phase out these jeepneys because they want to introduce buses. However, a lot of drivers and owners will be affected by that. Here in the city we now have small buses though.

Hello, interesting your photos. Many years ago I knew a businessman who collected antique cars. On one occasion when he was on his way back from buying one that would increase his collection, he got off at a bend in a road to take pictures of the car and without realizing it, he exposed himself too much and a vehicle passed by at high speed and ran him over. His death was very well known at the time because he was a person of great heart. Thank you for sharing your photos.

In Caracas, in the slums, jeeps are used as public transportation. And people call them jeepseros or jeeseros. But they aren't as "classy" as your jeepneys.

I love beetles. One of my friends at college had one. And I always used to ask him to let me drive it, hehe.

The dental clinic sign on the ramshackle vehicle is great as a set from a zombie movie. Or a post-apocalyptic as you say. Or one of a dentist serial killers who takes his victims to that place to torture them. LOL

These jeepneys were small then but it had been reinvented over the years that some are bigger and longer.

I can't remember how many times have I been in a beetle but it was few times I'm sure.

Lol! If that is located in a deserted place, it will make it even creepier.
