The mailboxes of Winston-Salem

No walk on Sunday because we went to the RiverRun International Film Festival and saw the excellent Goodbye Solo, directed by Winston-Salem native, Ramin Bahrani. It was an added treat that this film was shot almost entirely in Winston-Salem. (Even better, the film's website provides an online map that pinpoints the key locations in the film.) So today's post introduces a continuing theme of this blog: mailboxes. This is a rich topic because there are mysteries surrounding the implementation of regulations related to mailboxes (curbside vs. doorside?) and because some homeowners take the challenge of personalizing their mailboxes very seriously. Jon turns out to have a knack for capturing the essence of mailboxes in pleasing photographs. We saw this mailbox on one of our first walks this spring.
