Days gone by by Vikram Franklin

With mobile charges being among the lowest in the world in India, I get a wry smile on my face every time I see a public phone like this. Call charges are 5-10 times higher on these compared to a cell-phone and I wonder just how long these will still be around.

Toned the pic from a lovely yellow to this somber tone (I like it this way – even as my better half disapproves).

    Tonal range is excellent – suits the period you’re going for!! I had to laugh one day at school, seeing a child use a corded telephone – they weren’t sure how to end the call – didn’t seem to know they could just hang up the receiver! I knew I was getting old at that point!! LOL

  • ROTFL!!! I’m going to make this my story of the week. LOL …. but I suppose that’s fair enough … “How does one end this call??” – LOL!!!
