Theme day : Public Mailbox.

So here is my public mailbox. I must say that usually, here in France, mailboxes are supposed to be yellow, not green. But a while ago, many mailboxes in Grenoble have been painted in fancy colours (pink, green, purple...) by some people. I found them quite pleasant but most of them have been removed and replaced by brand new ones now.

I struggled with how to make a public mailbox interesting. That and the composition ... You have done an outstanding job on a difficult theme.

I like it. You can tell it's painted green and only a bit of the original yellow is left.

Excellente idée de les peindre, toutes jaunes c'est lassant! Bon dimanche à toi.

Sally a dit…

Obviously lots of free thinkers and iconoclasts in Grenoble!

Dsole a dit…

Oh I like how it looks!
it would be funny that you were allowed to paint as you like your mail box! they would be little pieces of art!

Yes Gerarld...it looks like in Grenoble they are posting on mailboxes and buses (see yesterday's post)! Great shot.

I missed this one yesterday, but am not glad that I've found it. It definitely is different and an unusual find for the theme day. Great capture!

Nathalie a dit…

Eh ben la on sort de l'ordinaire!
Vert pomme au lieu de jaune, c'est deja surprenant, mais couvert d'affiches a ce point!!!

Tu gagnes le prix destroy!

mum a dit…

Pas mal en vert pomme, mais celle des Halles qui était rose bonbon était aussi surprenante, mais elle a vite était repeinte en "jaune poste "ordinaire...
Pas le temps de la fixer pour l'éternité...

What i don't realize is in reality how you're not really a lot more
smartly-appreciated than you may be right now.

You are so intelligent. You realize thus considerably when
it comes to this subject, produced me individually consider it from a lot of varied angles.

Its like women and men aren't involved unless it is one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. At all times deal with it up!
