Antique Door Telephone
Lens: DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Mammoth Hot Springs

I was invited to stay in a historic residence at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone NP. One of the interesting relics in the room was this original door answering telephone. I used the on camera flash because the room entryway was unlighted. Of course the 16-50s big snout caused a big shadow on the wall. So with a little cropping and PP I came up with this. I think it might look good in a sepia tone as well.

Thanks Jerry. I guess it could called an early intercom.
