Hello…… nobodies there! And Jen – Dr. Who had a POLICE BOX not a Telephone box – how many times I gotta tell ya that???? : P
Awesome shot – was the box really leaning – or is that just because of the angle of the photo?
Thanks Tamme :))
Its a bit of both, but more leaning than wide angle…ish
AYE?? are you Scottish umbra ? I am too.I remember the phone boxes when they woulld ring people would look and keep walkng!!Great shot !!! Jane
Me ? no just my name……a mate of mine answers those calls and the takes the mick out of the caller!!! why, I have no idea ;))
I’ve never struck a ringing phone box, except on Amelie. You can’t ring them because they have letters as well as numbers – but then this isn’t Scotland. Yes, I was wondering about the lean and maybe a wide-angle lens – love the way everything leans – bikes as well! Lone red looks great in a photo.Knock knockWho’s there? Doctor.Doctor Who?(groan)
I’ve haven’t used one for years, but I’ve sheltered in them to make cellphone calls on noisy streets :)) I’ll never go to heaven now…I love the look of them, they’re reassuring in some way :)) This one I think had been attacked by a gang of moles…repeatedly headbutting the underneath, trying to knock it over!!!——bloody vandals
Shallay the phone box has anumber on the interior which you can call , both in Scotland and here.I am talking about years ago . Jane
I like iT !! Is that phone box about to bust out o the ground or what !? I like it for it’s kooky-ness ! Love the use of color.
Thanks Sarah :)) the paving slabs underneath were all busted up, definitely some shenanigans going on somewhere….maybe
this is the BEST, i absolutely love your compo!!!!
Thank very much …had to grovel down and take a dozen shots to get the ‘right’ angle :))
classic London. I feel like you’ve just beamed me there.
Thanks Dan, it was a miserable Sunday, so very few people about :))
Terrific shot! They have such character, those old ’phone boxes….
Thanks very much nemrina :))
