The Jafacab


This is the Jafacab (Just another Friendly Auckland Cab). It goes up and down Queen street, and if you can catch one – the ride is free and fun!

Now for as to what Jafa means… Being a Jafa is a very Auckland thing but not really a good thing. This is what Aucklanders are called outside of Auckland – Just another F-word Aucklander…

Want to find out more about the Jafa ways:

    I’ve been trying such kind of shots to stop a moving object. It’s not that easy and I’m not quite getting that yet.
    This one is excellent on motion and frozen JAFACAB.
    I admire your technique and excellent eye!
