Pea coat laden yuppies cruised by typing on their Blackberry's and iPhone's, avoiding these phone booths like a half frozen puddle or a homeless person. It dawned on me; who uses pay phones? With cell phone penetration over 85% in 2007, they are merely taking space and I assume cost more to remove than to maintain. Out of the fifty or so photos I took in my stint at the Coffee shop, I like this one because it shows life passing by the phone booths. Like any transitional technology, these phone booths will soon be relics, like laserdiscs or fax machines. Look for phone booths next time you're out and about and you will be surprised at how many you see.
