Kuala Lumpur: Payphones

Mobile phones are rapidly making the payphones of Kuala Lumpur obsolescent. They look lonely now. In five days of walking the city, I never once saw one being used. Their days are numbered. They stand stoically on the streets waiting to be ripped off their moorings and sent to the scrapyard. And so before they are gone for good, I made it my mission to photograph every one I saw and then to reinterpret them as the vital instruments they once were.

    ARTful! Love it! I particularly dig the textures in your first photograph, the lighting in #9, and the strong lines in #10.
