Day 213

We had a visitor on our deck this morning. At first I assumed that it was a different snail to the one I shot the other week, but now I come to think about it, maybe it's the same one! Eh up, Brian! :-)

This afternoon I went for an hour's walk and took the Canon. There's plenty to shoot around here, even on the side of the road.

I reckon you could fill a coffee table book with quirky NZ mailboxes. Here's one belonging to one of our neighbours:

Agapanthus seed heads:

I shall have to take another photo of these when they're in flower (which is in mid summer, around January.)


  1. That's definitely the same snail. I told you he was on his way to eat my veggies. I'll take a picture of him when he arrives here :-)

  2. That mailbox is hillarious. Great shots.

  3. That mailbox is hilarious! Would love to see more!

  4. That Microbox is AWESOME! We had a unit almost identical to that one. I wonder if we could get away with that - I have it in my basement. I don't the the USPS would put up with it. Jerks.

    I <3 the snail, too. Stunning shots.

  5. Oh my goodness, that mailbox is way too funny!
    Very original!
