Poulsbo Telephone Booth Poulsbo Phone Booth


Poulsbo, Washington is such a lovely little city with lots of wonderful restaurants and shops.  I often take guests there to shop a little, eat a little and wine a little.  One of the fun places is our local “Hare & Hounds Public House, where you can get great food and in the summer sit out on lawn and enjoy Poulsbo like a tourist.  In the next few weeks, I will be adding more Poulsbo attractions to my blog.  I live it Kingston and love it there too, and will be SO glad when Kingston has as much to offer as Poulsbo or Bainbridge Island.  Stay tuned for more drawings.IMG_8881


Sometimes it is fun to show the photograph that prompted the drawing.  In this case there needed to be a bit of editing to make it a little more interesting or hopefully so at least.  Maybe a person actually using the booth (if it is operational) would have been more fun.  When I was teaching at The Art Institute of Seattle, I often asked my students how many of them had ever used a “Telephone Booth” and unless the student was over 50, they really did not have the concept of what they were or how to use them.

When I was working my way through college in sales, I had to use telephone booths (often in not so wonderful neighborhoods) and a map, not a map book, but a map to try to find the homes of my clients.  This part, the gps/cell phone part of life I believe is much improved.   The not talk to the person standing next to you and texting them, not so much.
