The Antique Phone: My Photographic Nemesis

I finally got around to photographing the old phone last week. It’s not the first time I’ve tried. Something always seems to go wrong with this phone. I’m not sure why it’s such a challenging subject for me. Anyway, it seems like I’m improving.

Here is my most recent attempt at a long shot of the phone. As you can see, it’s quite the phone. My aunt had it for years, and when she got rid of it, my mother took it. Mom says it is a “French” phone. She doesn’t use it, but she’s pretty sure it still works. Needless to say, I am under some pressure to get a landline so I can use the phone.


It might take me a while to get comfortable using this: a dial. Never had a phone with a dial. I have a guess as to how it would work, but my parents might have to give me lessons.


Next Time: Nature

Depending on the weather and my travel plans, it will be either parks or abstract nature.
