French Friday: Vintage Postage Stamps

I recently came across the Flickr stream of Dr. PhotoMoto, which produced a sort of Pavlovian response. His sets include breathtakingly detailed shots of insects, butterflies, birds, and… vintage international postage stamps. Yeah, I know it seems like a jump, but somehow it all organically evolves into one big photographic pile of awesomeness.

Below I’ve included some of my favorite stamps from France and her territories. But please Please PLEASE visit his stamp collection to see all of the beautiful specimens.
