Photographer's Note

I have posted this for its uniqueness. The Royal Mail has painted more than 100 of its iconic red post boxes gold in celebration of every gold medal won during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. So I was very surprised to find this one in Sark, an island of 2.1 sq. miles and a population of just 600 people. It was painted in honour of Carl Hester who was part of the Equestrian Team Dressage. Carl was born and raised in Sark. Sark is one of the Channel Islands that is just off the Coast of Normandy, France. The Channel Islands are British Crown Dependencies. Sark does not allow cars on it tranquil dirt roads but does allow tractors and horse-drawn vehicles.
