Postcrossing: PFF



This is a Postcrossing postcard from Riga, Latvia, that came with some beautiful stamps. This photograph is called "Painters" by Gvido Kajons.

What an unusual card! I enlarged it for the full effect:) She's dancing on her desk! I hope that she doesn't step with her bare foot on a pencil! Ouch!

How very beautiful! As an artist, I have to say this postcard makes me feel happy! Happy Pff!

Interesting image... Looks like the lady, sitting with the hat on, is well protected from any possible insect attacks!

I thought that was Michael Jackson for just a second. I like the picture better now that I know it's not him. Happy PFF!

Beautiful!
The woman with a pretty hat is oblivious to the dancing of the artist :)

Happy PFF.

Hello from Pakistan!
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!!!

I want to swap a postcard with world UNESCO heritage site from your country. Can you send me one such card?
In return I can send you a nice postcard with beautiful landscape from Pakistan - which I think will be a great addition in your collection?

You can leave me a comment at http://mycoolpostcardcollection.blogspot.com/

We can also make a blog link exchange if you are interested....

Best Regards
Yours Cheema

This is very unusual. I thought it looked like Michael Jackson too.

A beautiful card! Do you think the lady in the hat is wearing it and what looks like netting to shield her from dropped paint? The lady dancing on her workspace just might step in her paint! Happy PFF!

I love your post card !
It has brought on an Audrey Hephburn moment for me so I must be off to create or perhaps find a quiet place to read with my mosquitto netting to protect me so I can ignore the world as I read and imagine far off lands of long ago.
Have a blessed weekend.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I am glad to have inspired you Terry! I wish now I had taken a better scan. According to the sender, the lady in black is Jeva Iltrere (?) and the lady in the hat is writer Gundega Repre (? hard to read her handwriting). Gundega is reading "Kunst, Europa".
