The Postal Service

Newer Older

Sometimes I get inspiration from the strangest things. Take for instance the inspiration for this shot, which came from the fact that Canada Post is on strike which meant that I had to wait another day for my new lens to get here. I started to think about the history of how we send messages and then I remembered that the Item Collaboration theme today is bottles and it all made sense!

I had to put this photo on pause in the midst of setting it up as a group of ducks decided to stand and quack at me for about 10 minutes.

Sarah Chaput de Saintonge, and 108 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    The only thing I do seem to use the postal service for these days is receiving goods purchased online, like I assume, your lens.
