PHOTO OF THE DAY: Gratuitous Pay Phone Shot, NYC.

I made this photograph in NYC.  I don’t know what motivated me to take the photo, but I do remember where I was and what I was doing when I did:  I was walking around lower Manhattan with friends who were visiting from out of town and we were in the vicinity of Ground Zero.

I found it recently in my files.  When I looked at this image, I was struck by the fact that despite the trash, these pay phones were amazingly intact, but that there was a “no dial tone” sticker plastered across the receiver on the phone booth to the left.

Make of it what you will.
