When people ask me what my favorite post office is it’s really hard to answer. I admit, the New Deal buildings are among my favorites but to me it goes deeper than this. What I constitute as my favorite post office is everything surrounding the entire visit. What stands out for me, as a favorite, or what I would call, “quality” visit, would be the photograph’s I’m able to get.
The visit to Bluffton is a perfect example of this. The sunlight sort of just glowed from the orange brick of the building making a great photograph. The clear deep blue sky in the background adds the perfect touch to the photograph. Take all this and add a great mural and you have what I like to refer to as “one of my favorites”. So to all those who ask me the question, “What is your favorite”, it’s the ones I get a great photograph of. See it’s not always about the building, or the content. Sometimes its just that I nailed the perfect shot.
