Miles from anywhere, literally I do mean miles.

Just there in dappled morning light... yelling at me "take my picture Mister"

Perhaps it was put there in the film era, so itinerant postbox photographers such as your good self could mail their film for development.

The answer, of course is either "Because.", "Why NOT?", or "42". <GRIN>

The quote usually given is that, when asked why he wanted to climb Everest, George Mallory replied, "Because it's there."

Aye, I believe so at the time shown, cos we’re efficient in the Highlands.

Some of my best photos are ones that demanded to be taken.
One of the things I like about Kerrowdown is that his hearing is so good that way.

Well, this mailbox is certainly "there". So the answer is "because". Is there a problem?

Very nice red. Thanks.

Why is there not a mailbox next to the mailbox? Mallory is a study on stupidity. He died.

Not quite sure how to reply to that.

But needed to get the K1 post count up.
