Project Blue. Take Four.

Letter Box
June 2008

My iTunes: Green Eyes by Coldplay

Greetings all from out West! So sorry for the lateness of my post!

We are traveling through Colorado and I have finally managed to snag myself some internet access! YAY! I am stunned by all these comments and participants in Project Blue. Since my internet is the way it is for awhile, I will be visiting blogs SLOWLY....but I will be there so keep posting! I am enjoying all I am seeing!

When I chose blue as the color this time around, I had no idea how hard it was going to be to find blue in Colorado! Browns and greens are covered...blue is A LOT harder! I don't use the images in my archives when I do these projects so I have been on a blue obsessed photo hunt for the last 36 hours! And I found ONE! Yes, only one. This image is so fitting! Here I am trying to communicate with all of you come hell or high water, and I find this old letter box standing upright in the depot of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. (Mike, if you are reading this, you are going to love the images I am bringing home with me!) I don't think I have ever seen a mailbox like this and thought it was very "old school"...it stands on a post like a gum ball machine.

Seeing this got me thinking of how communication has changed through the years and how I love my email and how I can be "in touch" instantly with those in my life. I rarely get a hand written letter unless it is from my 76 year old great Aunt Jane. Never know, maybe I will take some time and write a few letters while I am on vacation.

See ya'll tomorrow!

Blue is harder to find all over the world Anna! That's a wonderful mailbox!

Jenty said...

What a stunning shot! I love the angle.. you've made a plain letter box look very good!

Robert said...

You got in close and changed the angle. What could be better? It's a great find. I look forward to what else you find in the land of greens and browns. I know you'll find something wonderful in blue. I hope you're enjoying your time there. This is a vacation, right?

timtim said...

Great shot! Cool angle. Funny it's a mailbox. I was in town today and noticed a mailbox sprayed with graffiti. Thought it would have been a cool shot, but alas, no camera! Would love to see Colorado again someday. Spent a summer there. Happy Early Birthday!!!!!

Mar said...

I think mailboxes are only in the US blue...!! love your shot.

Mike said...

Anna, I am so glad you have gone to Durango. I hope you guys get to ride the train. You will love Silverton if you get up there.

Also consider checking out Chama, NM about 60 miles southeast.

Carver said...

Although I'm not participating in project blue I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed what everyone has been coming up with. You have a beautiful site.

Anna said...

Hopefully you're internet access will be a little more regular now... Can't wait to see what other blue things you discover out west!

the teach said...

Anna, your take 4 is such a beautiful blue... I never noticed the blue of our US letterboxes! :D Enjoy out there in Colorado!

Anna,

Your gift is taking the ordinary and making it look spectacular.

Yes, truly a gift!

:)

(I've got another up...more of the "ordinary" :) )

paul chambers said...

am liking that letter box a lot!

Britt said...

Oh, I LOVE it!!

heather said...

This is my first time to play! I look forward to more blue (or green or yellow or chartreuse or red--ooh, ooh, do red!) days.

kenju said...

VACATION?????

You just got home from Hawaii!

JFargo said...

Awesome picture Anna!

Raven said...

Nifty mailbox. Hope you are enjoying your travels.

Rebecca said...

What a great shot!

Blue is HARD! If I didn't use photos from my archives, I'd not have been able to participate in this one (except for my Take 3 shot).

Paul said...

I like your mailbox. I posted my first "correct day" picture just a few minutes ago. Stop by.

Paul said...

Can you removed #160? It's the same as #106. Keep #161. So very sorry.

napaboaniya said...

Blue letter box :) Love the angle the shot was taken!

Mark said...

Great mailbox here. For some reason, I had no trouble finding blue when I finally joined the project. Of course, so far I've posted only two, and both came from the first day. We'll see how long my luck lasts.

srp said...

I probably date myself.... but I remember when most post boxes were this shade of blue. They certainly stand out!

Lacey Lichi said...

Perfection. I love getting a letter but I love the instant-ness of e-mail!
Have a great trip. I'm hoping that my website will be up for you when you come home.

annette said...

It is a great shot Anna, Notice how often that particular shade of blue is teamed with white, they look great together. Our mailboxes over here in australia are RED!! enjoy the rest of your travels.

Gattina said...

That really is a coincidence ! I also choose a blue letterbox, lol !

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

What a great find! I hope you post photos of the whole mailbox later on. You chose a nice angle for this shot.

Hope you're enjoying your trip!!

photowannabe said...

Love the angle and shade of blue. Thanks for the challenge of finding blue.
Enjoy beautiful Colorado.
My Blue #3 is up. I'm one day behind because of ABC Wednesday.

June said...

Wonderful! I like that it's a "letter" box instead of a "mailbox". It spurs thoughts of correspondence from friends vs mail from companies. Good shot!

Happy Birthday!!!! Susie

kenju said...

Happy Birthday, Anna!! I finally took time to get some blue photos, so I'll have at least 3-4 for the series.

jientje said...

I did not go out today, but still I made an effort for this Project blue! My #5 is up as well! I love every minute of it!

Sailor Girl said...

It has an AWSOME BLUE!!!! Loved it!!! I have been posting daily takes for your Project Blue (at Atlântico azul), ok??

Smashing idea you had!!!!

Have a great trip!!!

Love, from Sunny Lisbon

Sailor Girl said...

I have a doubt: do we have to keep adding our name and URL in the form of your daily posts or is once enough???

Thank you!!!

Raven said...

Someone mentioned that today - Thursday - is your birthday! So... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And many merry, color-filled unbirthdays to go with it.

Cris said...

What a nice place you are... and beautiful mailbox, Colorado is full of little surprises...we used to live there! Anna, do we need to add our names everyday to Mr. Linky or just once? Thanks!

Sailor Girl said...

REALLY??? HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!

Paul Nichols said...

I'm number 187 this time.

Bob-kat said...

Great angle! What a fabulous old mail box and what a great blue!

Of course out post boxes are red here in the UK :)

quilly said...

I was about to post a photo of the mail truck for blue. I have been having a heck of a time finding it, too!
