Ever notice how postcards look like they were shot in the 1980s or 1990s? The landmarks are always more vibrant in real life, and if the weather is good, you could take better pictures. Nonetheless, until instant printable postcards become a thing, I’ll be sending the vintage prints with handwritten messages in hopes that friends will receive them some time between 1 and 8 weeks to put on their refrigerators.
I’ve kept all the postcards sent to me over the years, which aren’t that many. I have ones from Japan, Paris, Mt. Everest, and Australia. Someday, I’d like to visit these places for the breathtaking views, the adventures, the food, the entertainment, and, of course, for the postcards.
