Lost Highway Phone Booth

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost, Street Photography by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

I found this phone booth on PCH, Pacific Coast Highway 1 in California. There is almost no cell phone reception along the coastal highway and there are actually several of these phone booths to be found at stops along the coast.
