    Mail box project

    In my job I travel around quite a bit and see lots different styles letter boxes I though this might make an interesting project. If anyone has a unique box feel free to add. This is my starting contribution.

    Re: Mail box project

    That's a good one.
    I'm going to move this to viewfinder.

    Project forum is for the monthly project that everyone can participate in.
    It has been a matter of confusion in the past so maybe it needs renamed or a forum for individual projects started.
    Keep Shooting!

    Please refrain from editing my photos without asking.

    Re: Mail box project

    Now this is one unique - one of a kind - mailbox. I love it!

    It's also a great topic - along with a good challenge to shoot some of the mailboxes we see in our travels (with a camera of course).

    Thanks for the idea.
    Liz

    Re: Mail box project

    Dang. I saw this and thought of one in town, went down to shoot it and it's not there any more. The description will have to suffice, even though I know that doesn't really count.

    Someone restored a 2-story Victorian-style house near downtown, and the mailbox was a model of the house! It was incredible.
