Having a grand time!
33/52 for the group 2016 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: G is for Grand

I was at a bit of a loss as to what to photograph this week. We don't have any grand buildings near home and having already had a couple of days out, I couldn't really go on an expedition in search of grandeur.

And then I remembered the old type of picture postcard and thought that one of my snaps from the visit to the beach might be just the thing.

Having a grand time!

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

You are so clever, that is really cute. It brings back memories of trips and buying postcards to send. (Something I still love to do actually).
I love it!

PhotoShop takes a bit of time to learn, but the techniques are not all that difficult really. There are lots of tutorials on the web these days with step by step instructions.

I used to collect postcards when I was young and still have an album hidden away somewhere. And every holiday we had the ritual of the postcards. You had to time it right. If you wrote them too soon, you had nothing to write about, but if you left it too late, you would arrive home before the postcards!

Yes! It is very tricky with the timing on sending them. And our mail has gotten so much slower here than it used to be.
