Singles and Pairs – Phone Booths of Athens Olympic Park

Following another explore out in Athens I ended up spending a good part of the day at the 2004 Olympic park here in Athens.  Back then when I think I was travelling in New Zealand and working North America and i did have a cell/mobile phone but I still knew house numbers and used home phones as well as phone booths.  The Olympic part had these paired and single phonebooths scattered around.  Still standing yet in various states of repair.  The sculptural element of these spoke out in a deserted space especially with the different settings and backdrops.  The paired booths look like couples and the individuals seemed lonely.
