The title of your posting "Express Mail" reminded me of something I in Twin Falls, ID many years back. As you drive west out of the city on Highway 93, you pass a farmhouse with two mailboxes. There is the normal mailbox at the normal height. There is a second mailbox on top of a pole about twenty feet high with a sign that says "Airmail!".

The photo, itself, reminds me of the movie "Castaway" where one lone survivor of a Fedex airplane crash is on an island with Fedex boxes and packages strewn about.

This is a good subject for the challenge. I think it could be a bit lighter and a bit sharper. The composition is great.

Jeff, I have one favor to ask of you. Would you please not double-space your text in your postings. It has a similar effect to posting in all caps.

Thanks

Cal

jeff,

The box looks lost and forlorn.

Considering you handheld at 1/4 sec that's not bad in the grand scheme of things.

Aloha
