pegelli:

I like the lighting angle with the bricks in your photo. Gives it lots of depth.

However, IMO I would have cropped the driveway out. I like the simple lines of the window, bricks and the orange boxes without the fourth element.

Great photo as always.

In China letterboxes seem to be "contrarian" green iso red
They make it up however with a very accurate lifting time

A few years ago, improbably precise collection times such as 10:23 and 5:17 became a feature of British letterboxes but the Royal Mail eventually saw sense.
