It’s Your Call

In an age when there is a cell phone in every hand, the classic red telephone box is used more for its nostalgic visual appeal than for its practicality. This incredible shot by Steve Wilson effectively captures the reality of this sentiment. Everything about the telephone box is a statement to the ever evolving communication expectations in our society.  No longer do we require the privacy of a phone booth to make our calls. Nor do many of us allow for the comfort of others by taking our calls in private.  People whip out their cell phones in any location at any time, often without regard to the people around them. A phone booth also represents the concept of limited availability. The reality of a time when communication required planning, resources, and time.
