Mailbox, Suspended in Winter
This mailbox photo may become one in a series of photographs – the kind of series where one takes the same shot every season of the year.
We were driving home from a nature break at Devil’s Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin, when I saw the very mailbox I captured this autumn. It was an easy hop out of the car and a quick shot, especially since I was half frozen from tramping in the park, and the windchill was in the frostbite zone. It wasn’t until I downloaded my photos on my Mac, that I realized the mailbox looks as if I caught it mid-flight, ready to hurtle itself into my camera lens.
