Project Red. Take Five.

Shiny and New

My iTunes: Stuck In A Moment (acoustic) by U2

Does this look familiar?

Several streets over from me was this beauty. For those of you who have been following my Project Red you will remember the day before yesterday when I posted another red mailbox. That shot was one of my favorites that I have found. Look here to see it again. As far as today's post, I am certain this is the only new red mailbox I have ever seen. Honestly, I love the other one so much better. It will take about 30 years or more for this one to take on all the character of the old beat up one, but I guess they all start somewhere. I would ask which one you all like but I think I already know the answer.

Kind of nice to see the other end of the spectrum I think.

Enjoy the weekend!

Neat to see the "before" version. Come on, admit it, you really just ran the first mailbox through the anti-aging filter.

Funny Mark. I wish I could do that...I would save some gas looking for red stuff!

The old one definitely has more character. These two shots made me think about the old cartoon with the old prop plane and the baby plane that wanted to be a jet...

Things that have some history to them are always more interesting than the brand new ones - even people - LOL!

Anna: You always look through an artist eye. I really like the brightness in this shot.

Beautiful, but you need to watch out for neighbor hood watch LOL!!
I like the old one better. All to often people want shinny and new and forget what limitless beauty there is in what they already have. Thanks for sharing

Love the character of the other one. There is something about the rust that attracts me. Great series Anna.
Have a blessed Easter.

I agree, the other one had more character. I think it was the rust. I love rust!
