Last year, I took a photographic workshop from the New Orleans Academy of FIne Arts focusing on New Orleans at NIght.

It is one of my most vivid anecdotes and candid memory of my childhood in Venezuela.
My fascination with this vehicle goes beyond the machine, it is an emotional connection. I have never owned a Beetle, but there is always tomorrow.
