Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 3 July 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Spotted on the streets in Edinburgh, this Police Box up for sale. Added to this months Aminus "seeing silly" theme.
Happy Silly Tuesday

Thanks everyone for your helpful comments and critique on yesterdays image, some really helpful pointers I'll try to use on my next attempt at HDR.

Canon EOS 500D 1/100 second F/8.0 ISO 400 25 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

This looks like a four berth Tardis, must be worth a bit more.

Can I see the inside dimensions before I buy it, rumour has it that it's bigger on the inside than the outside.
