Rotary, Baby!

I found this phone at the Antique Mall in downtown Asheboro. This called out to me from the endless rooms of treasures. It made me happy on a lot of levels (good old rotary phone memories, the color red, etc.) and I wanted to shoot it in a clean, crisp way to emphasize the lovely circular design that is lost on modern phones. It was suggested in our critique that the shot might have been better had I used more dramatic lighting or set up an old-fashoned office sort of feel with a desk lamp, etc. I can certainly see how that might have added to the shot, although this is sort of how I imagined it initially.

this is a really neat photo. I like the old school phone and having it red is also nice
