13 Mailboxes

February 15th, 2013

13 Mailboxes
I don’t know why, but I really like the number 13. Some people go out of their way to avoid 13. Not me. In fact, I’m about to embark on a yearlong project for 2013. I’m going to pick 13 random subjects. Take 13 snapshots of each. And we’ll see if we can paint a portrait of Rochester.

Let’s start with the seemingly mundane mailbox. Most of these snapshots were taken near Sea Breeze…
