19/365 Wait a Minute, Mr. Postman

Today was a perfect day to be on the lookout for a photo opportunity.Fresh snow fell yesterday and through the night. I was driving into Deerfield when I caught sight of these mailboxes. I turned around and pulled off on the side of the road to take a few pictures. I love how the little bit of red stands out from the black and white. I also like the wavy lines of snow as it piled up on each box and underneath from the snow plow. It's interesting that the simplest things can look so different after a snowfall.

When thinking of a title for this photo, I remembered the Beatles song that begins, "Wait a minute Mr. Postman..." Now I can't get the song out of my head.
