photoblog image post box

post box

This was the first of several of these post boxes/letter boxes we saw during our first visit to Portugal. We were really surprised to see them because they are just the same as those in the UK.

I have absolutely no idea why I chose this to be my last picture of 2006, maybe I'm trying to remind myself to get things into the post early enough to be delivered before Christmas next year!

I hope the New Year brings you success in whatever you strive for,  along with good health and personal happiness.

photo adaptée pour nous rappeler que malgré tout, le plaisir de recevoir et envoyer un vrai courrier est quand même mieux que le courriel ou sms.

Ah, the influence of GB wink A very happy new year to you and all the family Ellie *pals* smile
Hi Ellie, you make me feel "homesick"! Lovely photo and a great reminder of the influence of the old Empire. I think I would prefer less DOF to put more emphasis on the post box, but maybe I am being a little subjective. Anyhow, it has been a real pleasure getting to know you over the last couple of months and I look forward to many exchanges in the year to come. Warmest wishes and kind regards, Neil.
Lovely shape on the mailbox. You got the red colour to stand out, and you have got the structure of the red and black "paint" come through - I like that :o) Happy new year!

I think one could come up with a lovely coffee-table book of mail boxes around the world and start with this! Then one would also see how much influence the UK has had around the world. smile

I'm so glad I can acknowledege YOU, dear Ellie, as my first commenter (in 2006) upon my Shutterchance arrival. In that regard, it seems very appropriate that you have ended the year with a symbol of communication. Thank you for being such an important contributor in this, our neighborhood.
