Finale

I finally watched the finale of ‘Person of Interest‘. Of course there were a couple of important phone shots that I recorded for posterity. I’m going to miss this show…

Are dogs scared of phone boxes?

I was browsing in a charity shop and came across a book on dog behaviour. I took a photo of the back of the book cover:

New viewing

Adam Curtis has released a new documentary called ‘HyperNormalisation‘. I highly recommend it. Here is a screen shot of a phone box in Russia – not in working order but I love the architecture around it.

A recent show set back in the 1960s – ‘11.22.63‘. Here we see the phone box seconds before it gets demolished in a car crash…

And yet another from ‘Person of Interest’ . This show has been great in presenting new ways to use the phone. This one gets bricked up behind a wall and still manages to work years later…
