P is for Postcards

I love collecting postcards, not only of places I've visited, but also of pictures that I like or that interest me. I love browsing the postcard racks in book stores and museums. So I wanted to share some of my favorite postcards for the letter P. I admit this is a little bit of a cop-out, as I don't have a lot of time to write today. Hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves.




 

This one is probably my favorite. I love this Munch painting, and I have often felt this way myself. I can relate to this guy. ;)

  10. The first postcard made me laugh. I started collecting black and white postcards when I was in high school, and my room was covered in them. Great post!

  11. Wonderful postcards! Old ones are the best--less slick and reminiscent of the past!

    Thanks for sharing,

  12. Lovely! I wonder about writing a postcard with as many P words as possible?

  13. The postcards do speak for themselves. Great word for P. One of the things I like about blogging is using visuals. This post is a good example of an excellent visual post.

    @Julie, thank you!

    @MJ, thanks for coming by, it's great to meet you!

  21. I don't see it as a copout. You can pretty much blog on anything during the A-Z Challenge so long as it pertains to the letter of the day. Postcards work great for P. Thanks for sharing some of your favorites!
