Telephone to Nowhere
Telephone to Nowhere
Congratulations to all the Finalists.
Re-entered into Nature Landscapes July 2012.
I spotted an old telephone booth in the middle of nowhere when visiting a winery at the Hunter Valley during a wine festival. To say I was dumbfounded was an understatement lol. lol. lol. or perhaps it was the wine I tasted at midday so needed to pinch myself thus Graham took the shot
Thanks for looking. Graham and ~Pat

LOL I thought at first I was hallucinating Avril, not expecting to see an old telephone booth like that.

I bet it was left e from days long by, I should have asked the history of it but everyone was so busy.

Thanks for dropping by! Yes, I did enjoy the wine lol!!!! A nice drop of red!

You never know what sights you come across driving around the Hunter Valley, especially after an arvo at a good wine tasting. Good find.

Great editing work, too, Pat...and I think I've seen that phone box up there before!! I don't think I've actually photographed it, though...maybe next time - lol!! ;o)

Wonderful, wonderful. Great subject matter and presentation as well, Pat. I guess people who use this phone can say they "heard it on the grapevine."--oh, I know, groan . . . :)

How fun! Well...let's look at this a moment...The phone is on a curve in the road and there is a post there. Right? :) And this road is the exit for the wine tasters of the day. They say about half of them end up drinking too much. So maybe they figure if folks taste too much wine and they hit the post at the corner they can stop right there and call a cab??? HeeHee....

How fun to be in your gallery tonight. I see many new and wonderful creations. :D

BIG CONGRATS BIG SIS! Beautiful Finalist!
