And Yet More Post Boxes…

Some of you following this blog may remember my dip into Post Boxes? Well last week in Barcelona I was very chuffed to find a yellow one! Yay!

There are over 800 different types of post boxes in the UK alone. Perhaps you have an unusual one to share? If you do then please post it and link to this one in the comments or via a pingback. I’d love to see it.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. They are eye-catching indeed, Jude. I like the logo too.
    I well remember your previous posts about these, and agree that they make great subjects.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. This was a brand spanking new one by the looks of it, in near the monastery which is in quite a posh area. I have a lovely dilapidated building for you from there too 🙂

  2. I’ve never known there were differently coloured post boxes in the UK, I’ve always thought they were all red.
    Have great weekend,

    1. Once we realised that the post boxes were yellow I was on the lookout for one to photograph – easily spotted across the streets! This one won because it was so pristine and uncluttered – the road was closed so there was no traffic around.

  3. Is this going to be your 2017 challenge? 🙂 🙂 I saw a yellow one in Ayamonte recently but I’ve deleted it 😦 I took it because it reminded me of an old, old photo of Mick leaning on a yellow one in Majorca light years ago, but it didn’t live up to the original.

        1. I couldn’t retreat altogether, I’d sorely miss all the interaction on here. But once I have the recent trips blogged about I shall try and cut down. At the moment the weather will keep me indoors, but come the spring…

      1. I’ve seen a black but can I find the photograph . . . . think it must have been pre-digital so goodness knows where it is now if I even took a photograph!!!!!
