Ana provides the challenge this week. “I would like to encourage you to participate, in any way you want. You can show us some of your pictures that you would send as postcards to someone you love. Or you can simply share with us images of your favorite places.”
As a child I was a collector of things foreign. I collected coins from around the world. I loved to look at picture postcards. I spent time separating them by subject, or country. In my high school years I lived overseas, and I thought that travel would be a larger part of my life than it turned out to be.
In May I thought I would be traveling around the state of California with my Australian Labradoodle Charlie. I’m glad we were able to take a trip to Pacific Grove with Charlie. Sadly, Charlie now plays across the Rainbow Bridge.
When it is very hot here in Northern California, and my friends grab their cameras and head over to Green Acres, a local nursery. My photography friends and I feel welcome to bring our macro lens and take advantage of the great defused lighting. The following would make a great postcard to brighten up someone’s day.
Some of my postcards spell out exactly your vacation destination.
Postcards with amusing animals may find themselves in a mailbox.
These are some of the postcards I would be glad to receive in my mailbox. How about you?
