Plymouth’s famous ancient Barbican, the place where the Pilgrim Fathers left Europe to sail to America for religious freedom, is almost timeless, especially in the morning when there a few cars and people around. There’s a quality to this place that gives a real sense of history and rootedness (made up word:)), but you all know what I mean. The Red Pillar Postbox is an iconic British emblem, and they are dotted all over the country and different parts of the world too. I’d feel really sad if these snail-mail receivers were abandoned. Captured in all it’s glory: The Red Postbox.

    I am learning to appreciate the selective use of colouring – especially when it is so appropriate and well done!

  • Hi there ChilJude, thanks for that, I love colour popping when it works well, but it’s quite difficult sometimes. Blessings, Don.

    An icon indeed – and the treatment really helps it to stand out. Will these go the same way the telephone boxes went?

  • Thanks so much for that my friend. I do hope they don’t go the same way as the old telephon boxes, I love them. Don.
