Leaves on the ground? In August? It can't be cold there yet, right? Maybe because you've had so little rain. This is a much more impressive post office than most of ours.

This is a very big Post Office Ciel .... Autumn must have reached your beautiful city.

Summer was barely here, and now it's already autumn! This is a beautiful scene (love the red pop of car :).

(Also, so interesting, I didn't know all that about European/French law! Here, I think so long as you don't use your images of people for commercial purposes, you're generally OK - it's anchored somehow in First Amendment 'freedom of speech' rights. But not being an expert, I prefer to mostly err on side of caution :).

So schöne Farben ! Viel zu blau und ohne Wolken hier. Alle naselang Streiks. Dir einen wunderbaren Herbst.

Nice building but I want that Mini Cooper! I would love to have one of those.

Can your post office give our post office lessons on how to build post offices? Love the shadows.

Leaves falling so early? I see the Sycamore's beginning to turn, but not much falling yet.

I'm with Woody!! Our post offices could surely use some lessons on how to build one!!! Yours is beautiful and I love the golden leaves and shadows! Great shot for the day, Ciel! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

What a grand post office it is! My community's post office is the size of a closet :)

Is it fall already? I haven't had enough summer yet!
The light on this building is beautiful. I think the light in Versailles is nicer than in Toronto. ;)
