Three Pictures Can Tell A Story

I am determined to have another photoblog this year in an effort to make up for last year's dismal attempt. Living in Virginia and on the East Coast has so many advantages. We're within easy driving distance of the Nation's capital. We're only three hours from great beaches. We're just a hop across the pond to Europe. And yet, if I never visited any of those places, I would still have enough photographs to fill a book just by wandering the streets and alleys of my own beloved and charming town.

Won't you join me for a photographic series of trios taken in and around historical Leesburg, Virginia?

Week Four: Old Leesburg Post Office

We have two  post offices in our town.  One is newer, larger and closer to my house.  The other is right across from the Historic Courthouse.  I love everything about this building except for its parking situation.  Old brick, beautiful architectural dentil molding, unique post boxes with greek key motif, vintage light fixtures – it’s a treat to mail a package there!  And the staff is friendly and “small town. The building is about a hundred years old, which is new compared to many in our town, but I still love it.  Enjoy



  1. I wish all post offices looked like this. Sad to say but post offices are becoming a dying breed. Nice pics DF.

  2. It looks like this is such a beautiful building. I like the post boxes pictures!
    Also in Spain, new post office are not as nice as they use to be... so sad.

  3. The PO boxes close up just goes to show how beauty is often in the small details.
