A postcard a day, from a large collection of postcards received, sent to me by me, and/or collected over the last 30+ years.

Not much to say about this picture today, except that I love the light. I wonder if it is one of those 1 AM summer nights in the northern countries, when there isn't much darkness. Or whether it is simply sunset some other time of year.
I've been sending and receiving postcards for over 30 years. When I travel, I send a postcard to myself, even if it's just a one day business trip. I badger my friends to send me postcards when they go on trips. I collected postcard ads from those free postcard dispensers, that used to be found near bathrooms and phone booths in public places around the world. I have a scrapbook of postcards, sent between 1902 and 1905 to my great grandfather from an aunt, who appears to have been traveling extensively around Europe. First post: July 5, 2009
