First Week Of Postcards

Blog

October’s Postcard Project had a good start. All the 31 cards were reserved in about 36 hours. Since the beginning of the project I’ve drawn and sent eight self drawn postcards. One every day. And they’ve gone / are going all over the globe.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My plan was to take photograph with my good camera out of every single postcard I send but in the end I’ve only took real pictures out of the first two postcards (above) and the rest have been recorded only with my iPhone in various lighting situations.

The picture below is history documented: I’m leaving the first two cards to the gentle service of the Finnish post office.
