Mail call

Rudy Cueto, 81, picks up his mail at his home in Port Neches on Thursday, August 4, 2005. He is concerned about doorstep delivery of his mail after nearby neighbors were issued a community mailbox.

This isn't the shot I had in my head. I expected to get the letter carrier delivering mail to the Cueto home. It's a long story, but the end result was I got the home owner when he collected his mail. This image tells the story better than the image I was prepared to shoot. Sometimes idea implosions are "best."
