Canon 20D, Tokina 12-24 @ 24, F11, ISO 400, 1/250th.

Taken outside a roadside diner that had gone out of business.

Walter,

I've often wondered what happens to old phone booths, do they simply go gently into the night? I guess you've answered that question.

Somehow I feel melancholic about this poor fellow. He's certainly got the blues having his tongue cut out.

Aloha

Good capture, Walter. My question is, were you driving by, saw the booth and decided tomake a quick stop just to take the picture?

Actually, I spotted the diner first and noticed that it was closed for business. Wanted to try out my new Tokina 12-24 lens. Then I spotted the empty pay phone housing.

Thanks, Walter. I believe you've posted this picture before, didn't you? It's a great shot. It looks like one of those hamburgers places from the 50's.

I can hear the phone ringing but I can't find it. Wait a minute...that's my cell phone....in my pocket!

Great work Walter. I remember your original shot. Both shots are great.
