So, I couldn't resist - I went in, got it, walked across the road (I'm sure the people in the passing cars wondered what this crazy lady was doing out in the dark with her camera!) and used the mailbox like a tri-pod :) I was SO excited to see the different kinds of shots I could get! I have posted two different pictures on captivatingwoman.blogspot.com
I thought, "What a splendid way to conclude 2009!"
May you all have a joyous and prosperous New Year!
