Walk on by

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?

Composition in blue, red, grey and green.

      Your city telephone booth is a kind of heritage right

      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....

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

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

      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.
