you used to be able to say mailman, but times have changed
Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.
I was wondering initially if it was not a trompe l'oeil painting
the framing of your shot is perfect, with the gesture of the young person who drops the mail

In France, postmen no longer have much work as in the past and they are beginning to be assigned to other tasks such as helping people. Email and internet have changed a lot for them

She is important person.

Makes a strong 'still' in what was once a busy life . . like a resistance to change.

Good news in this old house !!!!

Good daily shot.

Thanks. I learned the word.
A mailman would have visited this house when this it was new.

At the right place at the right time

The house is very special and with the post"person" it is superb !

This is where masculine and feminine in language comes in to its own. Il postino and La postina works nicely :)

@grouser: well, we have masculine and feminine pronouns in English too. The problem is when you refer to a position, profession or action that can be performed by a man OR a woman, you cannot pick one or the other without upsetting someone. "The nurse washed her hands, " might offend mail nurses. "The doctor washed his hands," might be interpreted to mean a man makes a better doctor.
It is rare to see one who actually walks to deliver the mail. I like this quaint view.

It’s an interesting shot that change from mailman to lady person mail man.The regular term of “mailman” probably will be use for both sexes.

What you say is quite true but in this situation the Italian version makes it straightforward, she is la postina

En France, il y a le facteur pour l'homme et la factrice pour la femme ! Mais nous avons des noms de métiers qui s'appliquent autant pour un homme que pour une femme comme médecin, peintre, etc...

I find this image grabs my attention but I'm not sure why

Really good photo! Excellent timing and composition. It makes me want to look closer and also provides a feel for the town.
