DP Theme Day: A Public Mailbox

April Fool's Day. And it's DP Theme Day! Today's theme takes us into the recesses of the postal service. Who knows what happens inside the darkness of mailboxes? (Well, this is my interpretation of the theme). Our public mailboxes have 2 slots: one for KL Only post and another for lain-lain tempat (everywhere else.)

Click on any of these numbers to see how the other DP members around the world have interpreted the theme. Keep in mind the different timezones. Everyone 'posts' at their own time.

1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10 -11 -12 -13 -14 -15 -16 -17 -18 -19 -20 -21 -22 -23 -24 -25 -26 -27 -28 -29 -30 -31 -32 -33 -34 -35 -36 -37 -38 -39 -40 -41 -42 -43 -44 -45 -46 -47 -48 -49 -50 -51 -52 -53 -54 -55 -56 -57 -58 -59 -60 -61 -62 -63 -64 -65 -

Have a great Sunday!

ps. only showing you the KL Only half of the mailbox. However, if you want to see what it looks like, click on KLDP's April 2006 archive. Hmm... both posts on 1st April.

Bingo! This is the fifth theme day post I commented on as a first visitor. Wonder how long I can keep this up since I decided to go out for a latte now.

Great shade and love the name on the mailbox as proof positive.

Very artsy. I struggled with the composition for a mail box. Originally I planned to show a check be placed in the mail. But then the US Postal service saved me and introduced the USPS Jedi Master mail box. How silly is that?

Looks like malaysia, like Australia, retains its colonial heritage red for post boxes!

It's one of the heavy metal boxes eh. The good old sturdy ones.

You should help talk to Pos Msia to organise painting boxes competition. You are so cretive :-)

A very original shot, Edwin. Well done. Why didn't I think of that!

Your shot really draws the viewer into the whole feel of your particular mailbox.

Excellent. Jilly x

Kate, I hope you enjoyed your latté :)

Ming, the Brits left much more. Dry humour for instance they brought back with them.

Thanks Lisa.

Alice, hope you have a good day too.

Thanks Gerald. And thank you GMT :)

Kaa, you miss S'pore, do you?

Denton, it definately was a challenge to think up a fresh angle for today's theme. But we all managed quite nicely I reckon.

Aah Sally... toodle pip old fruity!

K'pok, i think I'll take up your suggestion. Pos M'sia...hmm...there's a challenge :)

C&D, nothing compared to your futuristic R2D2 box. No, I don't want to know either.

Thanks Isabella. Loved your Male-box LOL :)

Postbox sahaja Bunya! :)

Zsolt, red everywhere.

Ham, been there a long time...yup.

Exotic? Hahahaha...what a word to use Kuanyin. Brilliant!

Kim, thanks. If only it was a gold one :)

Lachezar, anytime. Imagination is King!

Julia, I used a macro lens. You can get one too :)

Hey Jilly, thanks. I kinda expected everyone else to show the entire box and I was looking for something specific to KL. Thank you Pos Malaysia!

Nice shot Edwin. It's amazing to think that these red boxes alone linked the whole world not so long ago.

I guess I missed something. Mailboxes everywhere.

I did a kind of segment on how to create a backyard wildlife habitat and it is at Brookville Daily Photo and it contains a lot of information that may upset some folks. Not sure if you are interested or not.

Little people living inside mailboxes reading every letter and swapping some of the pages and sometimes pinching love poems, Ed. You have been warned.

i'd like to think little elves live inside mailboxes and do the work for us =)
have a great sunday.
