post office shortage


turns out this is a topical story as post office closures are upon us in greatest of all britains (see here).  a number of closures were announced today.

anyway, i took this photo last week as it was a teeny postbox.  like much smaller than usual.  small enough for a toddler to pop a letter in (which is what they love doing, so is ideal).  it’s also good for the stooping elderly.

when i saw it over a grass verge i thought “wouldn’t it be great to have a person next to it for scale” and suddenly this jogger ran by.  a quick grab of the camera from its holster, shoot, fire, and there you have it.
