A Pay Phone. Two Ways.


A little cinematic.

A little cinematic.

This is Netflix’ fault. Or, Amazon Prime’s. I forget which one.

I started out with a nice simple graphic image of an abandoned pay phone. It was cleaned up nicely by whoever owns the boarded up building. There is no actual phone and all the wires are removed. It looked sort of cool as a graphic image so I took it. I did my usual post production and let it sit. You know, marinate.

Then I was watching some weird movie. On Netflix. Or Amazon Prime. I liked the cinematics, so I thought “why not?” Why not, indeed. That’s why it’s one of those streaming services fault. They got me thinking. That’s always dangerous.

I started tinkering around. This is where I came to. Because of the way the colors were laid down, there is sort of a heart shape surrounding the phone. This could be some kind of weird Goth Valentine’s Day card. Or not.

Or, is the picture better in its most minimalistic form? Blue and Gold? Contrasting colors?

By the way, in either case, the biggest eye-catcher for me is all those lines. Horizontal and vertical. And, you know me. There really is no better or best. There is only just different.

As I saw it.

As I saw it.

    I like the blue and gold one best. You know, my eyes would never be drawn to that but now I totally see the beauty in it. I love it when somebody shows me a different way of looking at something. Thank you!
