Phone Booth, Ushuaia (and a Quick Survey)

When was the last time you used a pay phone?

This was taken three years ago today near the bottom of the world in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, the southernmost city on the planet. It reminded me of an elevator to hell.

It was the last time I used a pay phone. Or, more precisely, a phone booth.

Whenever you step outside in Ushuaia, you should do so prepared to encounter at least three seasons. About twenty minutes after I took this, I returned to take cover from a swirling downpour that emerged from the proverbial “nowhere”. I didn’t make any calls though.


For the record, today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 757th straight, was snapped on 30-Jan-2013. I think it works reasonably well for vibrant, this week’s photo challenge.
