There are basically two pics in this article.  Phones shot from the front, Phones shot from the side.

Somehow, the photographer took twenty something pics of the same pile of phones, composed the pics the same way, and this article posted them all.  with a little bit of writing in between pics.

Mentions most used payphone, but where's the pic of that? Huh?

Also, why wouldn't these have just been recycled.  This is 100 of  23,000 payphones taken down in the last 20 years.  Finding a pile of 23,000 payphones would be quite a sight.  This looks like some lazy phone company just left a truckload of payphones under an overpass.

That's a fair cop.  (The Photographer in question here) Truth be told, I just took the shots in passing, thinking I would use one or two them.  I tagged them, posted them on Flickr and didn't think anything more about it until they started showing up around the web.   Hell, even I thought "It's just some shots of old phones".

I love the smell of smug superiority in the morning.

I have a small child walk behind me with a Polaroaid who whispers in my ear  "Respice post te! Hominem te memento!"

FTFA: "Dying out: Two decades ago, there used to be 35,000 payphones in the city. Today there is only 12,000"
