Red - See It, Snap It, Love It.

Once upon a time I was regular used,
But now I am forgotten and left unused.

People would come to me to make their calls,
So many stories I've heard in my four walls.

My beautiful red has lost it's sheen,
Once upon a time I used to gleam.

Even though dull I'm still proud of my colour,
Some of my friends sadly look even duller.

They have been sun-kissed and weather worn,
Now pink and sad, no longer red and left forlorn.

I'm called a British icon, a well known and loved sight,
Still iconic and recognizable even though my red is no longer bright.

I took this picture for the See it, Snap it, Love it weekly photography challenge from Dear Beautiful Boy for the theme 'Red'.  Sadly due to unforseen technical errors (technology is great until it won't work!) I couldn't get this posted in time to link up properly as the linky is now closed but I thought I might as well post it anyway.  The other lovely photographs taken for this challenge can be seen over on Dear Beautiful Boy's blog on the page for this 'red' theme.  The new theme is 'Eyes' and hopefully I can be more organised and avoid any technical errors and link up properly.
