    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

    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 knock
    Who’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

    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
