Project Red. Take Three.

Got Mail?
March 2008

My iTunes: We Can Work It Out by Heather Nova
(from the Sam I Am soundtrack)

I will keep this project up as long as you all are interested or until I have had enough and get bored...deal?

I didn't have to go far for this shot. This box belongs to a neighbor up the street from me. Thankfully they were at work so I didn't have to worry about questions. It just isn't cool these days to have strangers taking pictures of mailboxes! I know even I would be a bit concerned if I saw someone capturing mine with a camera. I love the red and the rust. I also like the worn letters. I pass this every day several times and have wanted to take the picture...good thing it is red it goes perfect with my project! :)

See you tomorrow!

I like the angle of the shot, Anna.

I don't know if it is the color or the angle but this image is very distressing. But I LIKE IT!!! :)

Gina said...

I think I like this one best so far, so much character in that box! :O)

I have enjoyed the Project Red series, but the mailbox is my favorite. I see we share a photographic interest in rust!

Mark said...

I agree with JR -- my favorite in this series is right on this page. Nice tilt on the camera. If all shutterbugs would remember to use angles more often, we'd crank out some interesting photos.

Anna: I would have passed up a dirty mailbox. Startling result on the photo.

My favorite RED photo, great shot. This mailbox has character.

My favorite photos are often those taken of the ordinary, made spectacular through the eye of the photographer.

Like this one.

Bonus? It's my favorite color.

Who would've thought an old mailbox could be beautiful?

really cool, Anna. I love mailboxes. For your next project, can I put in a request for BLUE?

Love the rusty red mailbox. You and John have the same style. I love rust too.

I promise I won't get tired of the red if you won't, Anna.

I'm intrigued by the idea of pursuing a similar theme over a given period of time. I think you planted the seeds of inspiration in me. Again.

Thanks!
