Theme day: A public mail box

Click on image to enlarge it!
So this is a public mail box near my house. This used to be the placed where my friends and I date, our meeting point. And behing the yellow theme day thing you can see Los Arcos roundabout I've showed you 2 times (one and two).
It's a long time since I don't write any letter... that's a pity, but emails are faster (confortable and cheaper) but less personal. I think that happens worldwide nowadays... maybe some day there were no mail box in the streets? I dont' think so :)
Have a great day!

Pues este es el buzón protagonista del día. Aquí solía ser el punto de quedada con mis amigos para salir por ahi. Y detrás, veis la rotonda de Los Arcos que otras veces (una y dos) os he enseñado.
Hace un montón de tiempo que no escribo ni recibo ninguna carta. Es una pena pero el email es mucho más rápido (cómode y barato) aunque totalmente impersonal. Supongo que es algo que os pasa a todos... ¿algún día dejarán de existir los buzones en la calle? No lo creo...
¡Pasad un buen día!

You're right about the structure it does look like whale or dinosaur bones.
Nice mailbox.

Imaginative shapes, what fun to drive around them. Yes, the postage service may come to an end - hard to believe.

Nice compostition with this surprising white structure!

the rise of email does cut down on personal snail-mail but the internet has caused a rise in the parcel-mail as folk order goods online.

Nice mail box. They don't want you to miss it, do they! - with all that large writing.

Oh, don't say that. I hope we'll always be writing letters and sending cards and postcards!

Like the structure

Hi Dsole, and wishes for a joyful Palm Sunday.

I was wondering the same thing about whether mail boxes would continue to be available since it seems fewer and fewer people use postal services these days.

Parece que el correos siempre los ponen a lado de un arbol tambien! :)

Nice surroundings for a mail box!
And I think you might be right - the "snail" mail might eventually disappear...

So if I understand well you used to date near the mailbox? Why is that? A very different one from others I've seen aroudn the world today.

Great photo. I like the arches in the background.

 
At 1/4/07 14:55, Blogger Dsole said...

yes Eric, me and my friends used to date there because it was on our common way to take the bus or the metro or whatever...

Thank u all for your words! :)

That's a wonderfully captured shot!

Excellent frame of shot! And there will always be mailboxes :)

Good composition ... You are right about the world no longer using letters. I send post cards sometimes but it has been many years since I sent a letter.

 
At 1/4/07 16:34, Blogger Keropok Man said...

the structure behind caught my attention more than the postbox :-p

well, it's another yellow one. if you want to send snail mail, you can send it to me haha... I can send one postcard to you too if you want :-)

The note you left on my DCPB today made me think that your arch photo was going to be McDonald's - an April Fool's joke. Los Arcos is good outside sculpture. People can be inside and under an open sky at the same time.

Nice composition - I like the shot.

Very interesting structure in the background. I like the yellow color and roundish structure of your mail box. The mail boxes in NYC all look like ugly trash cans. :-(

So I had to improvise and took a photo from a different ventage point instead. Plus I'm LAZY! :-)

Estupendos arcos y el buzón estoico y firme por mucho tiempo, claro que si.
Feliz semana santa.

Nice large post box!. I love background too.

 
At 1/4/07 23:52, Blogger Sally said...

Lots of mail here - in fact more than ever. Justr most is soliciting donations, or bills! Guess they don't get posted in boxes though!

I still write letters.

 
At 1/4/07 23:52, Blogger GMG said...

Well, I'm confirming the idea: Nobody is writing «letters» anymore...
Nice shot, Dsole!

Very artistic shot with all the circles in the background!

Excellent point, gerald england; let's just hope the post office can stay competitive and as reliable as the private carriers.

yes, a mailbox doesn't have to be always square shaped! I like a round mailbox.

Dsole, I guess mailboxes can come in all colors, but I never thought yellow was a color used for mailing systems. I guess I was wrong. I like composition and the information behind the photo. Dating by the mailbox, he, that's new to me too. ¡Qué tengas una bonitas y alegres vacaciones!

 
At 2/4/07 07:05, Blogger Kala said...

I hope people dont stop writing letters! that would be sad - i like to see and receive hand written letters - it shows care and personal feel to know someone took the time to do it - emails are fine for everyday things but nothing beats having a personal letter to hold in your hands =)

Congratulations for showing not only the mailbox but a striking environment. Great place to meet !

Dsole, just finally slogging through to the end of our theme day entries. Your photo is wonderful! Hey, it looks like a Brit shape and an French color! Far more attractive design than US boxes, for sure.
-Kim
