This Week Sandy wants us to be creative regarding old photos and the nostalgia associated with it in a postcard format.
This made me think about postcards.

Thank you Sandy for the inspiration.

Even if you receive the postcard do you have time to scroll?

How times are changing!

Are postcards Obsolete?

I don’t think so.

Still, I find many shops around the famous location, in every country selling the postcards with famous /popular landmarks.

My guess is a postcard at any given time is a better souvenir compared to magnets, ceramic boxes, key chains or T-shirts.

Hanging our memories on the wall gives one the greatest satisfaction whenever you have a look at it. 

My feeling is at least photographers can continue this good old habit and keep it alive.


Thanks to Sandy for this challenge, we are sure to enter the world of HAPPY NOSTALGIA 

In this challenge Sandy wants us to take a photo and re-imagine it as a postcard. With additional text, messages or graphics, re-create your photo into a POSTCARD FROM THE PAST

“These are the only cards that are wonderlust. Goes everywhere without a price to pay, never to return”  Punny Leone

“Wherever you travel to, I would love to receive a beautiful postcard.”  Lailah Gifty Akita


“The pessimist sees only the tunnel; the optimist sees the light at the end of the tunnel; the realist sees the tunnel and the light – and the next tunnel” Sydney J Harris

How about the idea of mailing a postcard to home yourself whenever you are traveling?

Why don’t you write about your experience and your feelings at that particular moment and record it?

The idea is that your memory is still fresh and you are able to express your feelings better.

Do you still keep the habit of collecting/making  the postcards?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

  1. What a very clever challenge and you’ve responded in a marvelous way! I love the idea of sending yourself a postcard with your own thoughts of the moment – what a great idea. I’m so sorry I didn’t think of it when travel was so much more a part of our lives. You’ve don a wonderful job with your “postcards”

  2. We still buy and send postcards, especially to our granddaughter, whenever we travel. I’ve even been known to send old postcards to people just to stay in touch and share images they may not have seen. Your post made me think — and that’s a good thing!
