Due to the increasing distribution of cell phones most people don't need telephone booths any more. Being a common mean of communication just 30 years ago, nowadays the telephone booths are mostly waiting to be used...
In Germany the old yellow telephone booths are continuously being removed due to a newer design.
These two facts made me think of the term forgotten place because I wasn't able to remember when I last used one of these yellow booths.
The shooting was done handheld with the assistance of a Philopod.
As the lens is a fisheye lens, four pictures easily cover 360°. To be sure I took three exposures at each direction. The exposures were 2 f-stops apart. The best exposed set was chosen before stitching.
Due to the use of a Philopd and the small dimensions of the booth I expected some stitching problems at zenith and nadir. Therefore I took an additional up and down shot.
