FMTSO: 10 Minutes from home (better late than never)

Ah, it's been a busy two months for me so I haven't had much time for blogging, which I miss greatly.
I debated whether or not to post the Friday Town Shoot Out because I'm so late but after thinking about it for awhile, I decided to go ahead and post something just so I can participate in this theme. 
I took several pictures going in several different directions but I decided to only post one location.  There are two post offices near my home.  One is only about five minutes away and the other one is exactly ten minutes. (I timed my driving)  It's not a grand building or anything so I took a photo of the drive up mailboxes.  It was a very sunny day and I had sunbursts throughout my entire picture so I posterized it to minimize the bad photo.

While I was at the post office, the perfect photo op presented itself to me.

This is what I captured from the parking lot of the post office.

The balloon was really far away.
I had my 300 mm lens zoomed in all the way and then I still had to crop the photo to bring the balloon in closer.

Well, that's it for my Friday shoot out.


  1. These are really terrific. I especially am intrigued by the first photo. What exquisite perception.

  2. At least you got the theme right! I posted "Red" pictures. I like the mailboxes.

  3. I'm glad you posted. I always enjoy your pictures. Have a happy day. Merry Christmas.

  4. Glad you shared as they are both great pictures. I love the post office box photo. And thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. I hope you will have time to get together during your holiday visit. I'm really looking forward to it! Yay!

  5. I agree it's always better to be late then never. I glad you posted! I really like the mail boxs great Picture and finding the air balloon is so cool.
