This black mailbox, on a brick post, is covered with multicolored rocks (like its surroundings).
Now, about this blog. If you're wondering why I ever started taking photos of mailboxes, have a look at About Tucson Mailbox Art (or click on its tab at the top of every page). I don't show every unique-looking mailbox I find, though. You can read why — and get a list of these “boring” mailboxes — in Not these mailboxes (or by clicking its tab).
Some tips for finding mailboxes:
- A ways down the right column is the Blog Archive. There you can find earlier mailboxes — back to the date I started this blog, 12/12/12.
- Type an address or a street name, a color, or something else about the mailbox in the search box at the right side of any page on this blog.
- (By the way, the Popular mailboxes list in the right column tends to get out of whack when someone mentions a mailbox on some other blog or website... it may not be the most-viewed by art-lovers who visit this blog regularly.)
- Use one of the boxes near the the top of the right column to get an email message for each new mailbox or to follow our feed. (Here's a video intro to feeds — ignore the part about Google Reader; it's been shut down. For more useful info that you can read at your own pace, try RSS Feeds by About.com Guide Wendy Boswell.)
