  Red telephone box challenge

 

For a few weeks the mailing list ran a red telephone box challenge. British Telecom had been slowly removing red telephone boxes from village locations, so in the interests of preservation I thought it would be a good idea to get various ADO16 models snapped alongside one of Britain's best known landmarks.

Entries are shown below for mailing list members who wished to take part in the challenge. To see the bigger picture, click the image of your choice. All larger images will open in a new window.

Chris thought he'd sway the judges decision by taking pictures by an AA box - nice try Chris!

 
 
 :: Declan Berridges' Mk1 vehicles

Declan owns a Mk1 Morris 1100 and Mk1 Vanden Plas and did one better than the other entrants, he used both cars and snapped them at various red telephone boxes near him.

Does the telephone box next to Marcus (Mk1 Morris 1100) look like it's been added on afterwards?

 
 
 :: Dave Wilkins Mk3 Austin 1300

Dave Wilkins snapped "The shed" by this telephone box. Fancy putting a telephone box that close to a road junction. Not an ideal place to stop and make a phone call is it?

 
 
 
 :: Michael Turner's Mk2 Morris 1300

I couldn't let all the other members of the mailing list have all the fun, so I had a go at taking my own snap. Not as good as everyone else's, but I tried.

 
 
 
 :: Scott Williams Mk1 MG 1100

Scott told the list he would have problems when trying to snap his MG by a red telephone box. Imagine our surprise when he supplied us with the following images.

Scott's images were the winner, obviously chosen because of their originality.
