Or cameras.
Not wanting to be picky and I am no expert but the cameras look like they are a reflection of the street lights.

He was but I can see the lamppost shadow looks like a couple of CCTV cameras from the post Napoleonic era.
Napoleon died before the age of photography but was buried just after its birth. Picture that.

I know.

An expensive car parked in St Amand. It looks completely out of place. :lol:

What is that car ? And why is he/she putting a ticket (I guess) on the back of the car.
