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…

BT may be removing phone boxes in some parts of the UK but they are installing new ones in others parts.

Angel Islington, London, wander

We took a walk around Angel yesterday. It’s been a while and good to see some things hadn’t changed. I have two phone box photos to share – a classic autumn scene and a wine cabinet specially crafted..
