The Town of A Thousand Faces Series

At least that's what it should be called.  Why?  Because there are...well....a thousand faces staring out from corners hither and yon!  (Actually, I've not made a count but perhaps I will as I gather images for this series.)

In the week ahead, I'll share a few of them with you.

Meet the first fellow in the series.  He looks down upon this fine ville from his perch atop the colossal portal of the sous-préfecture, just around the corner from me...


...and he's just our starter!  More to come so stop back in tomorrow.

Yours...enjoying a little face-time,
leslie

ps:  is it just me, or do those carved wooden door ornaments look like paws as he poses sphynx-like from this angle?

Yes, they do look like claws from the angle of this photo. I love this! Beautiful door!
