Dan Marker-Moore captures the beauty of the public telephone with his Instagram-uploaded pay phone pictures. The extremely creative social media account solely features artistic shots of different pay phones. The smartphone photographer also has a blog on the same topic, which he has coined 'payphoneography,' in an effort to capture the outdated form of communication.

Marker-Moore's pay phone pictures are of telephones in the United States. The project began in December 2011 in Los Angeles, and has since expanded to include pay phone pictures from other parts of California in addition to New York and Chicago. The shots often showcase graffiti and street art, as well as a variety of urban scenic backdrops.

While many pay phones are being removed, Marker-Moore encourages others to upload their own payphoneography posts with the appropriate hashtag.
