21 Intriguing Pictures of Payphones

Unless you live in London, payphones in most places are rapidly disappearing. When you can find one in the United States, they’re often covered in graffiti or used gum, standing broken and unusable. But still, payphones can evoke a bit of nostalgia, and in their own way they can be quite intriguing to photograph.

Great picture by Steven Daniel! I wonder if the situation was real or if he payed the kid a buck so he could shoot the picture. Either way, I love that picture!

Very cool! I think there needs to be a challenge involved though. Let’s try to get to 50 by the end of March. Soon there won’t be any more payphones so we need to photograph the heck out of them for posterity.
