Are You Here to Photograph Our Post Office?

leave a comment »


I was standing on the sidewalk of Main Street in Ripley, New York, when a woman approached me and asked If I was there to photograph “our post office.”

Photographing the post office wasn’t why I had stopped as I was passing through. There was nothing about the post office in Ripley that was out of the ordinary. I had seen dozens of similar post offices in numerous small towns in America.

But since she asked, I decided to make one image of the PO. I mean its just megapixels, right?

So here is the modern post office building in a small western New York town. It may not be much different from other post officers in other small towns, but it something that Ripley can call its own.
