I'm not sure if this image is suitable for TE, but it's a piece of UK's history,I think that it fits in TE's theme- learning about the world through... Nowadays the red phone box becomes a tourists' attraction..Remember it? Or miss it?..It's a museum piece now. Inside the phone box, it said:"Please be brief." So, I've got to stop now...:-D.. BTW, it was taken in Melton Mowbray museum, a little PS work made up the starry sky. Thanks for looking.

Nice shot of this museum !
I like its red light under the stars and the darker environment behind it
A moody shot well taken in low available light
Have a nice WE

Absolutely superb nighttime photography. The starry sky adds warmth, but of course it is the telephone booth that is a symbolic of England. I'm surprised that they are still around, in our times when mobile phones have penetrated every nook and cranny of the globe.

There is sharpness and clarity in the photograph of the famous 'red' phone booth. And your notes are absolutely humourous.
But behind the telephone booth - the stars in the sky ! Amazing idea !
Very well done...
Always nice seeing your photographs and reading the notes.

This one is perfectly preserved or restored, and it's probably one of the last examples of it. Your PP enhancement really works well setting the mood of this vintage telephone box. I like how the red of the box is nicely enlightened by the inside lights. These phone boxes are very much phased out now which is really a shame, as they were part of UK's heritage. Thans for sharing what will soon be just a museum piece.
Have a great weekend.

une belle idée de photo, bien cadrée;
l'effet de la cabine rouge dans la nuit, avec les lumière, est superbe.
un bon W-E

IMO it fit perfectly to TE. I like very much the light and red colors because of excellent contrast against dark BG. The vertical format is perfect. Well done. Have a nice weekend.

Certainly deserves a place on TE in terms of photography and subject; not many of these remaining in the days of the mobile phone. The shot is very well exposed creating a special atmosphere that is appropriate to the subject. Excellent framing. Thanks for sharing.

This is a delightful composition and no doubt a suitable picture for TE. With the starry sky and the warm red light from inside the booth you have created, or captured, a marvellous atmosphere. It's really like a picture from a fairy-tale, where the phone booths will soon belong.

this is totally ok for TE!
I bet these phone booths are a dying breed!
better to capture them now or in the future it will only be in museums!
wonderful black hour photo. I would never have thought to capture it in this way.
and the stars in the sky are an added bonus.
