Little gates and letter/milk boxes

Few weeks’ back I was at KK Nagar and come across few streets where I find couple of gates of houses adjoining one another. What interest me to capture these little gates were the letter and milk boxes hanging from each other.

Twofold gate and milk/letter boxes

Both were ground plus first floor and the house above was painted in bright orange and light green combo. The houses on this street where built in a row and this house has a twofold gate with three boxes – one red letter box and two blue milk boxes.

Like the red letter box, the blue milk box is also slowing becoming my favorite thing and I find more gates with milk boxes these days than the red letter boxes. Apart the blue milk box, in the gate above, I also liked the simple design of the gate which seems patterned in fishes!

Now that is rather clever, I haven't see mailboxes attached to gates before. Very nice idea.

Hello, they have some colorful walls there. I like the gate on the second photo. Great fence/gate finds. Have a happy day!

I really like all the lively colors. I guess your mailbox would swing around a lot but everything should stay inside of it.

Beautiful colors. Makes me think the inside must be beautiful as well!

Milk boxes? Do they have milk delivery there? I wish we had that here!

God bless you, Jeevan. I am enjoying your blog!

Nice photos Jeevan. The colours and contrast are vibrant.
I notice that you love any fencing. Seems like you feel its warmth and safety.

Happy weekend.

We still hang a bag/cover at our gate for milk. These blue milk boxes seem more classy :)
