A postcard to more
April 21, 2010 § 6 Comments
Recently, I’ve been staring at my wall a lot.
I’ve a pile of postcards stuck on it, and sometimes I wonder if I could step into one of those postcards and live out that world.
That, however, is not why I’ve been staring at the wall behind my laptop a lot. It’s because my focus likes to skip out on me, and leave my eyes to glaze over. While that was happening today, my glazed-over eyes noticed it’s been a (shamefully) long time since I dusted off my postcards. So I did.
As I was dusting + sneezing + reminiscing where I bought each postcard – mostly in Europe months and months ago – it occurred to me that it’d fun to do a little research on each artist/photographer.
You know, take a look at their other work. Find out what they did/do/were known for. Where were they from. Why did they take that picture. My curiosity tends to poke me to wonder about all that. So in good time, I plan to set about checking one postcard/illustration out at a time.
( But for now, I’d better catch up on my projects for my exams. )
