I like the bright colors and the feeling of decay and isolation. I don't know if it's a Sherpet style image so much, but it is interesting.

really like the idea however would have liked to have seen it cropped more on the left side to bring phone over to the third and more of the vibrant green and purlple on the right side. but maybe that wasnt possible.

THIS MADE ME LAUGH I love it...............
I do not think you meant for me to LAUGH - but....

AT FIRST UNKNOWN TO YOU I not sure what you story is re the BACKGROUND of this photo, BUT my FIRST THOUGHT is that PUBLIC PHONES ARE A REAL STOREY to me. Yes this one SEEMS to be ok (re the height) but I do not think it works so that would annoy me.....

But what IS annoying is that most phone are often all out of reach for me, re PUBLIC PHONES and this is what I like to do to them..... hee hee, actually break them down... BUT this one is my size.....


To me it made me LAUGH in the sense that most government or council public places and objects do not suit people of short stature like me, but I think you message it differnet to mine and thats OK.

I am pleased you entered this as it really brought home that everyone is different in there interperation of the style of SHERPET and for me this is great as it MADE ME LAUGH..... and it is COLORFUL..... THANK YOU very much...

I have never observed any negativity in Shez's photography. This is an interesting image, though, with the cheerful background behind the decay.
