The Lion, The Shield and The Post Office



Detail of the entrance to the Canadian Post Office in Ottawa, conveniently close to the Parliament. I was gawking at the elaborate shield held by the lion at the time. The door actually leads to Narnia. Just kidding.

What an amazing shot! The angle is so nifty too! I sooo wish that this was the entrance to Narnia! Gosh I read those books over and over and over again as a child! Happy PFF!

You should change your caption to NARNIA.

The angle is intriguing. I can't tell whether it is a scary or a friendly lion.

Hi
Happy PFF !
That is a fabulous photo.
Hey you could think of it as the door to Post Narnia :)
The shield is really amazing being held by the all so confident Lion.
A truly beautiful building.
It must be wonderful on the inside as well.
Have a fabulous Friday.
Happy Trails
