The mailbox sitting at the side of the dirt road between the house and the barn. Just being there makes you wonder about the people who owned the farm, their family, and what happened to them.

True ! You make me realize how a mailbox actually speaks a lot, especially when abandoned opened and rusty... Very interesting !

The mailbox and fence have a rugged look that I like. Nothing fancy here, but practical things.

Your point of view is fabulous. The mailbox looks to be makeshift to that spot. It does make me wonder.

Wonderful frame including the red barn ... so much to love about this photo ... the red painted planks on the barn; the fencing, the mailbox, and how it is all unkept and just let go; gives the scene so much character! Love this, Elaine!

A wonderful image reminiscing the Olden Times ---- the withered boards, the relicts of a fence and the precious mailbox- a great find, Elaine and excellent presentation. Kindest regards Monika
