Old Letters

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, Black Canyon City, HDR

On the last trip to the greyhound park in Black Canyon City, I thought I’d take advantage of my new 50mm lens and use it on the old letters that were lying around behind the ticket counter. I’d say this lens definitely did a much better job than my last attempt at a similar shot.

Oh yeah for sure. I remember that shot your talking about. I think it helps that you got much closer, it seems, this time. Nice job!

I love the story that this image tells. All of them are undeliverable letters. Was it an marketing mailing of some kind? Perhaps accounts revivable that went unpaid and led to the failure of the facility? The possibilities are endless.

I’m very much with Scott on this one. I love the big Return to Sender hand stamp. Dead letters in a dead office.
