The photo was taken next to the Stamford library when I passed by. The view gave me a sense of "time passing by"..,a kind of nostalgic. People have been talking about handwritings these days on the radio, that is becoming a thing of the past now, since we don't write letters anymore...I saw this little corner was full of the history,but it seemed to be forgotten. I felt that if the window was used for something, the clock on the top telling people the time then.. the Pillar boxe and phone were both becoming the symbols of the past.. since they were replaced by the emails, text messages and mobile phones..but I'm always delighted to see them whenever I pass by.. thanks for looking.

A very well seen piece of local history so many of us could have passed it by.

Lots of interesting elements in this well observed capture.

lucky to see 2 icons in the same place


A small local corner crying out for a shot to be taken, Jasmine, the bright reds just screaming for attention.


The off-set arrangement makes a lovely balanced image, and what a beautifully saturated red too.

I think a lot of people enjoy seeing these, Jasmine, almost bits of history now.
I like your composition and the decaying walls of the building too.
I've no doubt that you thought about it, but the letter box is "facing" to the left, out of the frame. You know me, I like to see space in front. However, the phone box door is facing to the right, so it's a difficult compositional choice, but I think you made the right one, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to include the clock and window as well.


Well observed and beautifully captured.

Thank you Pamela. There wasn't much space there, I didn't stay there very long, only one shot. There was a florist on the right, some plastic cover came into the frame, some blue colour on the left side of wall in the frame, and it was a dark corner, I had to use the inbuilt flash.. but there was a bit space in front. When I crpped the vertical parts, I cropped off the foreground a bit... and I did some tiny up as well, it was more messy than this...Grin
Thank you Lynne.
Thank you all.
