Ever tried to photograph a car at two in the morning – Sunday morning? Last weekend, I did just that, while being out with friends. You see, this place I like to frequent has a nice view to the street behind it, and the white Citroën BX wagon just peeked out in there. I immediately put down my small Guinness and barged to the patio, which was just about to close.
“You can’t get through here, sorry.” “But there’s a car there I need to photograph!” The exchange was something to that effect. Patience and good manners paid off, and here’s the result: some noisy and blurry shots of a white French econobox. Isn’t it great?
The Suomi Finland -registered Citroën was bone stock except for the five euro hubcaps bringing down the property values all around it.
As the tailgate sticker proclaims, the Citroën is the comfiest drive.
And hey, at least it isn’t one of the Finnish-converted van versions, with a fiberglass boat upturned on the roof.
Such simplicity. On such a complicated, yet light and understandable car.
