Poetic Postbox

Last month the most influential person in my life (sorry, Mom) visited for two weeks. We trekked to my favorite landmark, the Cartas Al Cielo sculpture in Avalon Nature Preserve (Stony Brook).

The sculpture "serves as a vessel of communication with those who have no earthbound address." We sent missives to deceased loved ones via the poetic postbox.

Without fanfare I recorded the moment for posterity. I used alchemy (silver halide film in an ancient camera) which was appropriate for a magical experience.


  1. Nice post Ally, cool photo. Glad you were able to spend time acknowledging deceased loved ones in such a beautiful setting.

  2. I've a thing for reflective sculptures - in both senses of the word - and I love the idea of a poetic postbox! xxx

  3. I love reflective artwork. It absorbs and reflects he world around us but you can always catch something different each time.

    1. True. Every time I've visited this work has been different.

  4. Very nicely captured. Well done!
