Completely Out of Place

Red Phone BoxesAt around 11:45 yesterday morning, we had a nice little power outage, or what I thought would be a little power outage… I waited for around an hour or so before guessing that, after that period of time, the power wouldn’t be back anytime soon. So I packed up a few things onto the bike and went out to see what Sandy Springs has to offer.

I calculated (via Google Earth) that I must have cycled for approximately 16 miles and on my travels I came across something that looked completely out of place in Georgia, and America in general.

A couple of British red phone boxes (a rare breed in Britain also, it must be noted). It just struck me as a kind of odd thing to see in the land of strip malls, especially odd when you consider there was a Tudor-esque building that housed Blockbuster Video behind it… Very odd indeed.

    On first glance, it looks like that says “BLOG” in big yellow letters on the side of that building.

    It does! Also, that’s the weirdest looking Blockbuster I’ve ever seen.
