|An apple pie a day can make Jack a less enthusiastic boy|
...not my best rhyme by far!
We used to have surreal visuals of how the backdrop would look life and we, with our latest sunglasses or denims, would look better in the image. Often, me and my sister would get hold of the Atlas or world stamps quickly after reviewing the postcards, almost sure that we would be able to point out the exact location and subtly, would also promise each other of traveling to this promised land some day. Compared to colored Polaroids and snapshots we carry in our digital safe-keeps, these images seemed to have a lot more depth but then it was perhaps due to this being from an era of just-about-sufficient rather than the current norm of everything being more, louder, readily available...the romance of it all has been lost!
