Woman Calling From A Payphone

Woman calling from a payphone

The woman wearing sunglasses was calling from a payphone

Shot at Datong District in Taipei, Taiwan.

There was a payphone on the edge of the sidewalk where I walked. Since the cell phones became common, the number of payphones in the streets was decreasing in Japan. The situation could be the same in Taiwan. It was uncommon to see a payphone during walking the streets in Taipei. Everybody has a smartphone these days. So the payphone became a white elephant except in a time of the disaster. Ironically, it becomes a useful gear when the city was affected by a disaster.

When I hung out around the payphone, a woman wearing sunglasses appeared. And she started to call from the payphone. She talked with someone while she looked into the distance. Her expression was stern. I wondered what she talked about.
