Villedieu-les-PoÍles in Normandy is one of my favourite places in France. My wife and I visit it often.
In February 2010 I noticed a letterbox with some junk mail sticking out so I took a photograph of it. Since then I have been back several times and noticed on every occasion that the junk mail was still there. Every time I visited I took another photograph. My last visit was in mid-July 2011 and lo and behold the junk mail was still there (but only just).
This scene has been photographed by me with 3 different cameras (a Sony A100, Panasonic TZ7 and a Nikon D300S) over a period of 17 months and somehow the mail has survived 2 summers and a winter.
