Down The Road Ya Hey

I don't have to go far to shoot some scenery which is good because I'm broke, cheap and into this whole look right under your nose thing right now.



Down by the marina. Got lucky with the sunset reflected in the boat window



 Reminds me of the A Christmas Story lamp

    1. It's not a bad work of art for a mailbox, Anna. Sure, although I'm not traveling too far these days. But then again, I don't have to.

    3. Your incredible photos make these look like they were taken by squirrel with a throw away camera, FP.

  5. Nice shots. The mailbox post is certainly far more unique than any I've seen!

  6. Great shots and so close to home. We can find interesting things just out our front doors. My cloud shots this week were from my front door and back door.

    1. Yeah they were terrific, TK. I went a bit further today, but not more than 30 minutes away, lol.

  7. That mailbox is a hoot! The grass is always greener on the other side of the road but really all we have to do is look in our own backyard for the images. Very nice reminder.

    1. It's also a reminder this walk from my place was no big deal when I moved in, now, however...I get tired just thinking about it.

  8. That mail box holder is just too funny. I loved it but I would never have one. Guess I am not as daring as some folks but I don't mind looking at other people's daring stuff.

    1. I always chuckle when I pass by, Latane. Oh you know it was a guy's idea especially since they replace it with a hockey sticks mailbox in the winter.

    1. There really is, especially with all the parks, a marina, a big lake and protected wildlife areas so close.

  11. That's the funniest mailbox ever! And it does remind of that iconic movie lamp . Beautiful scenery -- you certainly don't have to travel to catch great views. I try to remember that too -- some of the stuff I take for granted is new to others.

    1. Yes, that's a good way to look at it, Sallie. If I can pry myself off this couch I'm going to check out two cool things less than a few miles away in either direction. Or maybe I'll watch the news.

  12. That mailbox is one of a kind....Actually, I want one.

  13. Ha, PC, I like the art but don't need a reminder of that body I'll never have. I saw a pelican mailbox that made me laugh yesterday because the pelican looked so very angry.

  15. You are right, there are lots of images right under our noses if we just care to look, as your post proves.
