PO Box 33



Keeping with the "My Hometown" theme, this is the post office box where my parents received their mail for more than 50 years. My mom still receives her mail there. Even though I haven't gotten any mail there for 21 years, I can still do the combination! When I was a little girl, I loved when Mom sent me into the post office by myself while she waited in the car - I felt so grown up!


Both shots were in AV mode with my 50mm lens. 1st shot, f13, ss1/20. 2nd shot, f3.5, ss 1/250. Converted to b&w in PSE 4.0. CC appreciated!

This is wonderful! I love the fact you chose to convert to black and white, fits the "mood." I would also like to see these in a sepia mode. Thanks for sharing a little history too.

WOW. that are the most beautiful post boxes. Love both pics. The simple symmetry of the first on and the fabulous prespective and DOF of the second. I agree with mom2drew,the B&W is perfect. My kids love getting the mail from our postbox too.

Lori, it was really cool to see these again. I always used to walk from our house down to the post office and get the mail for my dad. I *think* I still remember the combination ;-)

Another really good subject there in Henrietta is the old jail. I went ahead and shot at ISO1600 but used black and white - really atmospheric that way.
