Travel Tuesday: wanna calling home?

When I was on the Isle of Skye, I was very surprised to see such phone boxes in very remote places. A phone box next to the street, but no houses visible. I wondered who is supposed to use them? Here, the locations for public phone boxes are chosen on the base of possible revenue or the importance of a certain location (i.e. train station, airport, …). So, you won’t find any in remote places. My advice when coming here: have your cell phone available when going to remote places or hope for other people to find you in case you have an accident or need help for another reason.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 5-03 / 209

Somewhere in No-Where, there’s a phone box beside a tiny road or a narrow street. I wonder, who’s using it or who is assumed to use it. Why did they set up the box here? I can understand, finding phone boxes in the cities, towns or even in the middle of small villages. But, in the middle of no-where? It’s miles to go to the next house. Nothing, but landscape surrounds the box. Fascinating! Surreal!

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.

“Monochrome Madness” is now in its fifth year of existence. Look at Leanne’s site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!
