I just liked the colours and the composition... had to wait a while for a lone person to walk past in frame.
But will someone tell me what the fascination is for tourists with telephone boxes? While I stood waiting to take this picture there were five different tourists had their picture taken either in the box or beside it. London is full of iconic images - and this is just a phone box!
Does anyone else think that's a bit weird?
our telephone booths in the states look nothing like that. they're rather plain.... like this
either way... i love this photos and the vivid colors. nicely executed.
Well I dont know in another countries but here in spain telephone boxes are so grey..so dull,,I was one of those tourists taking photos of that wonderful red ones lol...I loved them, they make the city brighter, maybe u are used to them but,,,:))
Yeah! being american yet having lived in England I can tell you it's the color (RED ha ha ha !) and something people just identify with here.. here they are usually silver and non distinct .. red is so so vivid and well won't go there ..
lovely comp and love the colors .. great shot!!!!

Great shot, excellent composition and contrast between the colours
Ha-ha... these red telephone boxes I`ve seen far before I began travelling in old english movies... they hardly changed with the time.
And weird or not, I`ve got a shot of it too! Silly, weird tourists....
