Actually his name is just "The Doctor" no "who". And it's a police box, not a telephone booth. Just trying to be helpful, one who fan to another.

Irresistible surreality in a charming setting, well photographed and presented (and leaving little more to comment on)... :-)

I like the last telephone booth facing directly at me as if it is bringing to my attention the problems it has on its back.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2008 07:01:49 PM
I know I've seen this before, but it is so appropriate to the challenge and song choice and So well composed and photographed that this must be a 10 from me

This really caught my eye...I like the humour in the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2008 03:37:00 PM
I know it's a sculpture of some kind, but by gosh this fits the challenge well! Nice use of a bit of blur, excellent light, nice light touch (or so it appears) with the editing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2008 01:04:59 PM
This is probably one of the few pics that actually says something about the words you've chosen, or in this case, song title. Well executed and well photographed. Now tell me, how the heck did you get all of them in one place like that? ;\

Perfect for theme. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2008 09:16:31 PM
This is my favorite for how it fits with the song. The colors are a little too washed out for my taste but that's a nit. Well done.

This just cracks me up as a visiual. It is also a very compelling photo. Way to find the situation and then capture it.

Such a witty capture! The exposure is perfect on the booths, and you did a good job in bringing out the weathered details, especially on the front one.
