The Traveling Phonebooth


When we went to the Valley of Fire during Thanksgiving week, Kaefer brought this little British phonebooth with her. It actually is a pencil sharpener - hidden behind the door - that we bought years ago in London Heathrow. She loves to photograph objects in the places we visit. In the summer when we went to BC she brought a toy car (a mini cooper) and took pictures of it everywhere. At that time she still used her compact camera, but this time she learned how to use a DSLR.



Wherever she saw a nice background, she put the phonebooth in place and then tried all kinds of pictures. It was fun to watch her, to see how much she was fascinated by using a big camera and play with it. Oh the possibilities!


Valley of Fire offered many good locations for the little red phonebooth.




Then we went to Death Valley where we stayed close to the Mesquite Dunes which we visited the next morning. Needless to say, the phonebooth was there as well. The funny thing was that other people started to take pictures of the phonebooth as well when they saw Kaefer doing it; one English gentleman suggested to her to ask for a dollar per shot. Brilliant idea!!



No location was too inconvenient or too cold or too hard. She has the right attitude.


And at Lake Tahoe the phonebooth even sat in the snow!

Willkommen auf meiner Kreativseite. said...

Da musste ich jetzt sofort an Dr. Who und die Tardis denken! Kennst du diese englische Science-Fiction-Serie, in der der Doktor in der blauen Police-Box durch die Zeiten reist?
Ist diese Telefonbox auch innen größer als außen? ;-))
