Show Me...Your Mailbox

WELCOME to the Show Me...Project! I'm very excited to be hosting this.

Day 1 Show Me...Your Mailbox

Why a mailbox? I have no idea. I like mailboxes although we have quite a boring one. I did this one months ago but wanted to follow my own rules and not dig through my archives. It was a challenge for me to shoot a boring object in a creative way but I love how this came out.


This is my first time using Mr. Linky so I hope it works. I encourage you to visit each others posts. I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with.

Come back tomorrow for Show me...your kitchen! For all the details for tomorrow and the rest of the week, click here.

Robert -- you won't believe this but I just took some not-so-boring photographs of my mailbox the other day!

June said...

Very cool shot and Quilly's too. My pics are not so creative, but I did tell a tale...

Robin said...

What a great angle - did you take the back off of your mailbox to get it?

This one was more of a challenge for me than you might expect - read my post and you'll see why.

Horsoon said...

This is my first time looking at the mail box from this perspective... it's like thinking out of the box... great shot!

Melli said...

LOL! How many tries did it take you to get that shot?! That was
great thinking!!! Mine is up!

Gattina said...

That looks very artistic !!

Love your shot. I never thought about that one, although I got plenty of other angles. My obnoxious cat got me up nice and early, so I was out while the sun was low and the dew was fresh. And took way too many pix. LOL! :D

ps - I'm thinking you put the camera inside the mailbox and set the timer.

Hi from Bazza, we don't have mail boxes in Blighty so I've improvised.

Hi Roger!

Found you via Carletta, and I'm glad I did. I knew what I wanted to capture the minute I read about this.

You hired Thing from The Addams Family to assist you?

Carletta said...

NICE ONE - I'm thinking the timer too but still wondering for sure how you did it!

I'm loving this project already.

Raven said...

Cool shot. I was wondering how you did it. Can you take the back off or did you put the camera in on a timer? Hmmm. Curious readers want to know.

Robin said...

Duh! The idea of putting the camera in with a self-timer never even occurred to me!

*slaps self on forehead*

Digital Polaroids said...

Super idea! I'm in!

Shelly said...

Mine pics are a little boring but I offered a "how to" solution to battered mailboxes. I took a shot of the inside of my mailbox, oh my...lots of spider webs in there...eeeeks! It was too creepy to post.
It looks nothing like the tidy interior of your mailbox.

Dr.John said...

Wow! A picture from inside.

lynn said...

I like that shot! Is that one of the ones that open on both sides? Mine's up. Our mailbox is kinda boring.

Dillo said...

I'm not really thrilled with my mailbox per se....but looking forward to checking out every one elses!

Anna said...

Hey friend! I love the project idea! I am out of town still but will participate when I get home in between editing and getting reconnected with my kids! Hope you are well....I have been looking for you on facebook!

Later!

Britt said...
