A good collection of mailboxes.

Que gracinha!

Good shot! ... Mailboxes of three different colors. I like the roof tiles over the mail boxes. I suppose they kept rain water from getting into the slits. I wonder why number 2 is crossed out?

Virginia said...

Oh I love this a lot JM. How great that someone thought to paint them different colors! This might be my fav photo today.

Those mailboxes have been there for a really long time! Nice find for Mailbox theme day!

They look much better than mine and mine are in use! :-)

Great set of boxes! The one marked with the X is quite interesting, but I am not sure there is a treasure inside....

Halcyon said...

Too bad it's abandoned. I like the style of the mailboxes. Great choice for the theme day!

interesting that so much time was taken to construct an overhang to protect the mailboxes from the weather and elements and then to leave the fronts of the mailboxes so rough and rustic looking

Sharon said...

I love these boxes. They look as though they served thier purpose very well.

Sailor said...

Fantastic collections.

ladyfi said...

Gorgeous - the mailboxes look as if they are still in use though...

Randy said...

These are beautiful. I really like all the color too.

Babzy said...

Nice texture and colours !

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

These go very well with your "decay" photos! With all that rust, I'd guess this place is near the beach...

Amin said...

Beautiful collection! Unique photo!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Weathered but still functional. Great shot!

Sérgio Pontes said...

Que belíssimo pormenor, meu caro!

Rich colors and textures. Maybe the person with the second mailbox was illiterate and could not write his name, so he made his mark with an "X".

Jack said...

This is a very charming scene. I wonder why someone painted the "X" on one of them.

What happen to no 2 !

You've shown us many abandoned buildings before. This photo is somehow more poignant.

Fabien said...

Tant que le facteur n'est pas daltonien...
Cela fait penser à certains jeux d'éveil, où il faut associer formes et couleurs.

Joan Elizabeth said...

An abandoned mailbox ... now that's something new. I love the colours here.

Marie-Noyale said...

Never realized there was an I in the "portuguese" name Correio..

Rob and Mandy said...

... but at least one still gets the publicity...

Gunn said...

It is like they all have a secret story to tell....
I like the photo. Pretty in a strange way.

Inger-M said...

Nice colors!

Great character in these mailboxes - unique!
