  2. I like how you have isolated the phone by using a shallow depth of field. B&W works well here.

    • Thanks Denise. I did have to give the shallowness a helping hand in GIMP, but I’m glad the results worked.

      • Ah, you use GIMP? I was curious as to what you favored.

        These versions of the rotary phones amused me. We had the technology to support six lines on a single phone, but not to allow a user to enter discrete independent numbers. We still needed the wind-up toy feel.

  3. They were probably available, but I imagine these were cheaper. Remember, this was a government facility!

    • Aha, touche! Hehe, I genuinely laughed out loud at your comment.

      My favorite takeaway and life-expression from my experiences for said employer: “Shut up and color.”

      Best. Expression. Ever.
