Phone Box & The Step

Filed under: HDRs — Tags: , — BlacksmithPro @ 19:05

These were the last two shots I took after leaving the Museum that day. Upon seeing this old fashioned phone box I was reminded of a conversation I had with a friend a month or so before where we were reminiscing about the red telephone boxes. This is usually a sore point for me as to me they represent everything that annoys me about the country I was born in and the image of it that is sold to tourists which they take home as icons/trinkets of their travels. So while I was lamenting them for this and the fact that there’s very little of them left anymore so what is the point of selling souvenirs of them, he reminded me of what it was growing up with them through our childhoods wherein they were used for everything from shelter from the rain or cold, toilets (like any enclosed space really, lifts anyone?) and for those who were having sex that early in their lives, brief sexual encounters in lieu of anyone having a momentary parentless environment. So for the sake of nostalgia and in tribute to both our memories of them I took this shot. The second image is of a lovely step outside a building on Gower Street around the corner which caught my eye.
