Category: Friendly Friday Challenge


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

“The world is a book.And those who don’t travel read only one page”   St.Augustine


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.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – / Two Ways

This post is part of Amanda’s FFPC – theme being-  TWO WAYS.

Amanda wants us to post, one or two photographs presented “TWO WAYS” That is the same photo or the same environment presented in two different ways, or at two different times.

Do you prefer Color or B&W or you like to try both and see which is appealing?

I guess it depends upon how colorful the given situation is.

“Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive” Elliott Erwitt

Color vs Black and White

Do you prefer images Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) or you would insist to edit and give a better look?

In other words….to process or not to process?

Getting it right in the camera…..Is this possible all the time?

The speed with which Camera Software is being developed with AI taking chunk of the responsibility,it looks now a days photographer need not worry about SOOC and simply press the shutter button and move on…

Just forget what is inside the camera at the time of shoot, and just concentrate on what best (how much juice) your software can extract from what is inside the camera!

“There is 3 key things for good photography: the camera,lighting and… Photoshop” Tyra Banks

Straight out of Camera vs Edited version

“Too much light for the eyes is as useless as darkness.”
 Amit Kalantri

Photoshop & Life

“Photoshop your life,touch up the edges, Adjust the tones, Blur out the background, Focus on yourself, and crop people out” Kushandwizdom

You may or may not agree with photo editing.But then who cares?

“Beauty is in the eye of the photoshop editor.”
 Nitya Prakash


One talks of beauty on what basis?

“Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty.”  David Hume,

Thank you.
