Red Phone Booth


Excuse me while I act like the American I am and get a kick out of a red telephone booth--it's better than attempting to turn faux British, no? I feel like I must justify many of my recent photographs and ramblings by stating "I'm a tourist." Anyway, aside from novelty I think this neglected red box surrounded by white blooms (and frighteningly filled with cobwebs) is actually a rather pretty spot. I find the chipped paint and faded lettering rather charming. I suppose next on my stereotypical UK tourist highlights reel should be a double decker bus--hopefully I can find one rusting away in a field since abandoned objects are always more likely to catch my eye.

These photos are fantastic (as usual!) I love how your hair and dress are almost a perfect match to the phone booth.
I'm not sure what it is about those old telephone booths, but they bring out the tourist in everyone!
I hope you're enjoying your time away. I've really enjoyed all the photos you've been sharing so far.

When I first read that I thought you said you got kicked OUT of a telephone booth, haha.

What absolutely gorgeous scenery.

You may be! said...

✪Thank you, thank you for this✪
You look devastatingly cute and it inspires me - I'll get my friends to take some nice pics of me in the french countryside. And I won't have to be embarassed one bit, because in France everybody but the french is a tourist XD

Gorgeous setting! The white blossoms really add some magic to the photos. You look like a painting, with your vibrant hair and flawless porcelain skin. I've been lusting over that purse forever

I think you shouldn't have to say that you're a tourist for taking pictures in quirky places. A beauty is a beauty. Carrie of WishWishWish loves to take pictures in front of red phone boxes too. Enjoy your time! Live your life! S'okay to be weird and crazy once in a while ;)
