Tin Star

I love this shot from Tin Star. There was no real need in the story line for this scene but the producers put it in anyway. Local art and phone boxes create powerful images.

It seems odd that in some deep basement in a fictional Gotham there is a real UK phone box lurking in the background:

On the plane over to Australia I watched ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel‘ again. One of my favourite films:

Other recent viewing includes: Dirk Gently (S2), Ordeal by Innocence , SS-GB , Blacklist (S5) and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (LOVE this show):

Foreign postcard

I found this with other stuff I had put away in the cupboard at my mother’s house in Australia. I don’t know when I picked it up, maybe my travels in Eastern Europe c.1998. I only speak English so I don’t know if it’s funny or not…

I also found a large stash of club and band flyers from the late 1980s and early 1990s. I’m setting up a blog to share those as well. This can be found at –

The Leftovers

We recently finished watching season 3 of the excellent tv series ‘The Leftovers’. There were a couple of arty shots of phone boxes, set in my home nation of Australia. I like the added satellite dish on top of the phone in the second photo.
