Here is the challenge. When I arrive at a post office really early in the morning the sun is just starting to rise. The sun is right behind the building making it difficult to photograph. Believe it or not this has happened to me more times than I can remember.
I arrived in Petersburg a 8:30 in the mooring on a Saturday. I did my best to photograph the exterior as well as the mural inside. How did I do?
Thanks for stopping by
