I’m not entirely certain of when this was taken, but I know it was later in the summer of 2008, before I moved to Philadelphia. It was taken in Frederick, Maryland on one of the hottest days we’d had, as far as I can remember. Every time we went to Frederick I saw this building and the pairing of the mailbox, meter and hydrant and always wanted a photo of it, but cars were always inconveniently blocking my shot. This particular trip, however, the universe conspired to grant me my empty street and I managed to get my shot. It’s more simple and straightforward than a lot of my stuff, but I just loved the composition of all the elements.
