A ring-a-ding of a post.

Max Sartin said...

Ring, ring. Love the pictures and the prose. Pay phones. I remember always saving my last dime (then a quarter) in case of emergency. Now I get to spend all my coins.

Naperville Now said...

didn't realize AGB'S lab was in Boston (and we were just there!). Great post for R -- the lonely phonebooth would be an excellent writing prompt.

Steve Gravano said...

Excellent collection, I love the rally, very cool! I don't think I could find a phone booth any longer.

Judie said...

Karen, wonderful "R" photos! My eyes are ringing! Hahahaha!!!

xoxo

Catherine OurVillageIs said...

Such a great post! I loved them all - except the alarm clock. =)

Filip and Kristel said...

I didn't know that these public phones still existed.

Greetings,
Filip

Riet said...

That is a great series of rings and photo's. I never thought of boxing ring what a great find.

Marcie Automatic Constantin said...

JJ said...

Karen, I love your posts. The images are fantastic, and I can identify with your approach to Jenny's posts each week. Good job!

lissa said...

storybeader said...

don't remember seeing the big bell in Dolores Park. So pretty. And is that a palm tree in the background? Cute Peace all-a-round the world. Very colorful! That pay phone doesn't look at all like Dr. Who's! {:-Deb

Mumsy said...

Fantastic R post! You're right, I barely see any pay phone anymore!

Wonderful photos!

EG CameraGirl said...

Super R-post!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I suppose a constant ringing in your ears would be a hard shot to get--huh?

Cheryl D. said...

You left off my favorite ring! The one I'm wearing on my finger! ;P

Jenny said...

I love your really righteous "R's".

My husband is in the telecom business and we used to have a ton of payphone customer.

Darn. Perhaps everyone will boycott cellphones and they'll come back in style!

This was a cute link!
