I always think that September is a great time to take photographs. The light is our very good friend in this month. I’m posting a few from here, each with a small commentary. Hope you enjoy them.
“What’s a phone box Granny?” my grandson asked the other day. How to explain.
If you had no phone at home or in the unlikely event of needing to phone someone you could go to a red box and then if you put money into the black box inside the red box, you could be put through to talk to someone on the telephone. You had to be quick though, you had to get across what you wanted to say quite quickly or you’d run out of money and the call would just stop.
These boxes have in many cases been re purposed and some have defibrillators installed in them. So the place where you might have gone to ring for an ambulance ‘cos Uncle George had these chest pains is now the place where, if Uncle George were to survive, he could be revived if he had a repeat event.

Some lovely shots, Paul. Phone box. How to explain to whippersnappers indeed😊
How kind of you to say so. I thought it perhaps unwise to delve into other uses of a phone box…
