Scavenger Hunt #22:  Mail
142/366

The day after receiving the assignment, "Mail", my mailbox was stuffed with the stuff.  I figured it was as good a day as any to take my photo.  So without even looking at what it was, I threw it down on the living room floor intending to try for a creative image of random, scattered mail.  And then I had an epiphany!

"Why not make it look like part of the Christmas loot?"  So I tried a several different compositions and came up with a couple I liked.

After taking the photos I finally looked at the mail.  Believe me when I say that, except for the small flat-rate box, none of it was worthy of the name "gift".  Bills, bills and more bills. Oh...and an occasional advertisement.  Sigh.

Your big pile of mail had so much potential...sorry it let you down!

I like the low angle of view in image #1, and the purple haze of background. In image #2, I like the fact that your whole, beautiful Christmas tree can be seen. Good idea to place your mail under the tree! :-)
