A red English postbox is the essence of beautiful utilitarian design in my book. And this snow dusted postbox seems to be the essence of holiday anticipation.
Rachael Talibart, based in the south of England, is the photographer, and shares about her travels and life through photography at her blog Focused Moments. She is a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and captures light beautifully in her many atmospheric photographs. She sells prints of her landscape and nature work here.
I wish I could post a stack of green-enveloped Christmas cards into this wintry postbox. Or feed into its mouth a brown paper package bound with red and white string. Instead, I will take my letters and packages down to Greg, at the post office in town. With its big blue lozenge of an ugly post box sitting outside.
That is my favorite red – oh, how I love it! And thanks for the intro to Rachael Talibart’s gorgeous pics.
Hi B! Rachael is marvelous! I knew you’d live her work. xox
That is quintessentially Christmas!! Love the photos this morning, they make me want to run around with my camera:)
I feel the same way! Two days after Rachael posted this we had a dusting of snow and I got some shots before it melted. But no red postbox in sight….
Thanks so much! I am very honoured. I have admired your beautiful blog for a while now and can’t think of a more lovely place to see some of my own pictures.
So happy to share your beautiful work, Rachael!
Sue, I’m so happy to have discovered your site, thanks to the very talented Rachael. 🙂
