Photography Competition: the entries so far

There are less than three weeks to go until entries for our Photography Competition close. For those who are considering entering but haven’t submitted their photo yet, we thought we’d provide a little inspiration by giving you a taste of some of the images received so far.

Peter, who presumably works for Royal Mail, took this photo out of the back of a post van. You can see the famous Pashley Mailstar delivery bicycle leaning against the sorting office wall.

Letter boxes and telephone kiosks in picturesque settings have been a popular theme. This entry from Marfin shows a wall box in countryside.

We’ve also received several photographs of interesting rural Post Offices. Below is Gail’s photo of Jemimaville Post Office in the Scottish Highlands. Wikipedia tells us that the village of Jemimaville “has 18 houses and around 50 inhabitants, and a small Post Office which is open Mondays and Thursdays”.

And finally, here’s an amusing entry from Jack, taken inside a Post Office.
