Photo of the Day 19

  “Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares.” 

Low and behold – we were driving past the Minden Park today and there was a pay phone! A relic. 

Take your children and grandbabies and let them make a phone call.

About Paige Shaw

Hi! I'm Paige - a freelance travel photographer. Let's go on a photo journey across the globe. The aim of my work it to show you the many layers and exquisite textures of a locality; its character, culture, people and beauty. Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago my husband Bill and I set out to see the world. 2013 gave birth to a travel blog ( chronicling our journeys so that curious family and friends could follow in real time. From that beginning so too a photographer was born. Honing my skills over the years I am now excited to narrate our discoveries with imagery! As you glimpse my art - join as we explore together. Be sure to throw your fashion ego out the door cuz there's no room in the carry-on luggage. Sunrise shots start at 5am. Hiking to the top for a different perspective will definitely get your blood pumping and you might even need to role up your pant legs to capture those closeups on the water…. Most of all - get ready to SMILE - it's the universal language. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, golfer, skier, scuba diver and expert wanderluster. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

      We watched a movie made in 1992 yesterday and they used pay phones to conduct business. I had commented to Bill that today’s kids won’t know what a pay phone is. So driving by one today was ironic.

    I date myself, but my first job after high school was collecting coin boxes out of payrphones in Detroit for Michigan Bell Telephone Company. I can relate to the phone in the park.

      We had Chappy over for dinner tonight and me made a comment about the work force it must have taken to empty all those coin boxes. You made that statement come to life. Thanks for sharing!

      I went to telephone operator class in my senior year of high school. We were taught how to listen for the amount of change that was deposited to make a long distance phone call amongst other things.
