London (Close to the Covent Garden)

Taken in St Peter's Square, Manchester

 

"Why do mirror image pictures" because don't we all look better in the mirror! And it's a place that does not exist in the real world, but they let your imagination run a little wild...

  

These Telephone Boxes are located near Manchester Central Library in St Peter's Square.

 

These type of boxes are called the K6 and were widely used to replace K1s and K3 and by the end of production, there were nearly 70,000 K6s in Britain.

 

British telephones boxes have changed over the years, but these are still my favourites and were designed in around 1939.

As the weather is terrible today (wet), another photo from yesterday's trip to Swanage. I've added some texture in photoshop, but not edited out the pile of litter left on the beach

The red phone box is often seen as a British cultural icon throughout the world. The famous K2 model was the result of a competition in 1924 to design a kiosk that would be acceptable to the London metropolitan boroughs. Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, it became a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar. The color red was chosen to make them easy to spot. There are today far more 'red boxes' in tourist city locations than there ever were originally... I found this one while exploring the labyrinth of streets between Bank and Liverpool Street, in the City of London.

or seeing red

 

A man entered into the field of view just as I took this shot, seen here in the far left of the image as a darkened upright area surrounded by blue bokeh. A couple of seconds later, out of the blue and much to my bewilderment, he picked up a street litterbin and held it well above his head before hurling it towards me. It missed me by a metre or two. Apparently he doesn't like having his photo taken, and had assumed that I was taking a photo of him. Since it is barely possible to make out a human form here, I have doubts that anyone could possibly recognise him from this image.

The lavender is looking amazing at the moment at Mayfield Lavender Farm and this old red phone box is a real attraction to the hoards of selfie takers! www.mayfieldlavender.com

Taken on 22.01.2014, yup been at it again. The away shoot to Birling Gap did not materialised and the rush back to Eastbourne Pier was not so fruitful. So for now here is one from the past.

The 6K41 powers through Bangor with 'Mr.T.' at the sharp end in 37716 with 57002 +2 FNAs in the consist. Good to see English Electric up front, the factory may have been superceded by a housing estate in Newton Le Willows but the traction lives on !!

The iconic red telephone box seems redundant in the age of the mobile telephone. Three in Northampton are resisting that trend

A bit of selective messin' with a shot from the beautiful village of Bamburgh last night!

The very difficult economical situation that majority of the European and non European countries are facing at the moment have forced many people to leave their homes and families with the hope of a better future abroad. The traveler in this picture is a Spanish radiologist who had just arrived to London and was looking for directions. She had a chat with me while I was shooting and I could feel in her words deep anxiety and incertitude but also a strong, dignifying courage and wish to succeed. When she left me, I focused on the telephone box and kept a memory of that female figure who was walking away on the wet pavement of the Strand.

This shot is dedicated to all those who are facing the challenging experience of relocating abroad, with just a modest suggestion: Do your very best to be a positive ambassador of your own culture, respect the country that is hosting you and be thankful for having the chance of learning from other cultures.

As I've been uploading pictures of my visit to Devonport lately I thought I would upload this one aswell. It was taken in the late 80s early 90s on my first ever SLR a Fujica AX-1.

I would be interested to hear if anyone has any knowledge or memories of this estate.....

phonebox at birling gap

Carey Street, London. One of those quirky, unmistakeably British things you see in this amazing city

Lookup the meaning of “hiraeth” and take a photo of it.

Old style London telephone box, on the Great West Road, West London. Shot using a Canon EOS-1n, on long exposure, with Fuji Sensia 100.

Two great British icons side by side in Stratford upon Avon. What a shame these telephone boxes are not used anymore. This one is already showing signs of neglect. I loved the old brickwork that these two stood in front of.

A small snapshot of life on the seafront....although most of our cities seem to have the obligatory big wheel these days.

For our Red Telephone Box supporters.

As a break from Spiral Staircases this is a shot taken last November on The Strand, This is just one shot, no HDR and no blending of traffic trails though there might have been more than one bus coming by during the 6 second exposure. They tended to bunch up at traffic lights down the road and then come all at once. I thought the red of the Telephone box and the red London buses made a good mixture.

.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken with a tripod. I processed the image in RAW for recovery of highlights and clarity. I corrected verticals in Photoshop using Filter – Lens Correction – Custom- Vertical Perspective. The only other processing was to clone out some distracting lettering on a sign on the far left edge.
