Walk on by

2007.07.19

Composition in blue, red, grey and green.

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?

noptek It's very exciting to wait for the right composition and your picture is great.

I'll have to post a photo of the phone booths here(South Africa), they are so boring well they are not even a booth really.

SheriJ We don't have telephone boxes in America if we do they are all beat up and trashed! and a scary place to be. Yours look very clean and nice from this view.

storytaylor cool contrast. vivid colours. very "urban"

????? 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!!!!

jet28 It's a bit like London buses - something about the colour! Always reminds me of the scene in "Local Hero" :-)

giulicrevatin Yes, it's a bit weird, the things seem to move, they seem to runaway frome the photo following the girl.

longimanus 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....
