Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

In today's era with technology and the internet, the need for actual mailboxes is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. In my town there is no mailperson except to the houses in the country. Everyone in town has a P.O. box.

    Not sure, but I think I may like it with these soft tones. You know in Germany it is so cool for them to get an American mail box. You don't realize it till you leave the States how much a bit of Americana they are.

    I often wonder why mailboxes & bicycles are so photogenic. Here, the dark sky, the soft colors, the emptiness, and the triple proof that someone must be somewhere around makes this picture mysteriously attractive. Nice photo.

    Laura and Patrick hit it squarely on the head - I love this one too - glad you posted it.

    Wow, although the b&w gives it that dust-bowl, "Grapes of Wrath" sort of intense authenticity.......I really like this one too! I just can't decide which one I like better.....

    Someone already said Wow - took the words out of our mouths. Truly impressive use of negative space. Wow!
