phone booth

Following up on yesterday’s post I have another phone booth (enough of those around the country, obviously 😉 ). Without a distracting old lady in the frame we can now entirely focus on the booth. So: Color, weathered old style or toned black and white?

Some more pictures of Cambridge. These are actually more typically British than they are typically Cambridge-ish. And here’s that dilemma of color/black and white again.
I love the grittiness of the black and white and to me it gives a bit more an authentic feel, but it’s a shame to lose the color of the bright red phone booth. And to put only the booth in color and the rest in black and white? I almost dare not show that, because it’s so over-done and so from the same angle that it’s not funny anymore. But anyway…
