I love the effort that has gone into this letterbox. Looks completely impractical for anything bigger than a card, but that’s obviously not the point!

    So ugly, and yet so weirdly appealing. Great shot- love the colours and composition…very suburban Australia.

  • yeah it is ugly isn’t it! very quintessentially Australian though….. thats what grabbed me about it. it has been very entertaining and instructive scouring the streets of my suburb……thanks for your comment!

    Haha! There’s one of these down the road from me too. I love the tacky kitschness of it. The filter just tops off the tired, old suburban look. Well done :)

  • thanks Chelsgus! I bet this was a popular shape when it came out! Oh the kitchness of it!

    I love how the koala seems to be pissed off yet resigned to having a giant slot cut into its stomach.

    Koalas are such funny little animals. I wish we had them in England, well only if they were indigenous I mean, we have enough trouble with the Grey Squirrels!
