    This picture gives me the shivers, for some reason.

        That could very well be. Maybe it’s my determination to learn about the past itself, and what life was truly like?

        That said, it is a nice picture.

      So sad. The mailbox now relegated to the museum of obsolete things, sitting there next to the milk box?

    Thank you for such a melancholy shot. The house, the mailbox all run down now used to hold a hub of life. The door slammed shut 50 times that day when the whole family was visiting my grandparents!

    That’s a really expressive picture it depends on what we derive of it
    I found it bringing to life the fact that letter writing might have faded with time but it still has a power of expression like no other a mail box always expresses more than an inbox .
    Amazing pic.

      Thanks! Thank you for taking some time to think about what the image says to you!

        you know, the monochrome filter is magical I don’t know but I wouldn’t have given a deep thought over that if it was in colour. The filter makes the image speak for it self,you just listen to it . 🙂

    Ahh! Sometimes I feel to some extent old post mail box days were better compared to our lives now. At least in past ,we could maintain distance from people & everyone had their space in life. Well well ,everything has its pros and cons.
    Nice Pic …

    Rusted, battered
    by generations of rain,
    the old mailbox

    tilts on its perch
    above the twisted weeds
    like a grey man

    resting on his cane,
    heavy with memory,
    love and tragedy,

    beneath the folds
    of envelopes
    and shiney stamps.

    I agree with Senna, this picture does give me the shivers. Also reminds me of the abandoned neighborhood next to the Warminster Naval Base here in PA. When I take a walk around the park, I always take a moment to observe what life was like back in the golden days. Creepy, but authentic curiosity. The only thing that moves in the neighborhood are trees, leaves, and the grass. We don’t even see animals roaming around the houses.
