Mailbox archive: 956 North Richey Boulevard

Here's a mailbox with a mosaic post showing the sun, a saguaro, and a coyote (or wolf?).

The two sides are different.
You might have noticed a strange pattern in the second view above. The mailbox has a series of horizontal lines. But, as I edited the photo, I noticed that it had striped patterns that changed depending on how much I zoomed in. Here's an example:

If you see something like that, it actually isn't real! (If you have nothing better to do, click on the second view and zoom in and out… you might see the patterns. How exciting. :)

I took the photos on June 12, 2013, but haven't published them until today.

Another in our long-running series of mailboxes I photographed in 2013 but didn't post until now is this box with a cutout plant on a metal plate between the posts. I snapped the photo June 12, 2013.

Someone went to a lot of work to make this elaborate flower “post” from nails and other cast-iron pieces!

I rolled by and stopped to gawk on June 12, 2013. I haven't published the photo until today. (By the way, I used my favorite free photo editor, GIMP, to select the flower and darken it.)

Here's a handsome mailbox embedded in a post that's faced with what look like thin sheets of stone.

I discovered it on June 12, 2013, but haven't published the photo until now.

I'm not sure what to call the design on the flag and under the mailbox. The one underneath looks kind of like an apostrophe to me. Whatever it is, it's interesting! (As always, you can click on the photo for a larger view.)

I stopped by and scratched my head on June 12, 2013, just down the block from the previous mailbox. I haven't published this photo until today.

This home has a mailbox with (metal) plants between its two posts…
… and the entrance to the home has a gate with the same design:

I stopped by here on June 12, 2013. I haven't published the photos until today.

When I rode my bicycle past the home on May 28, 2013, I talked with the homeowner. The metal between the posts is recycled, she said.

I haven't published the photo until today.

A rusty plant climbs up the post and around the rust-finished mailbox in this photo from May 27, 2013. I haven't published it until today.
