I started collecting postcards three years ago. The idea is to keep something as memento from places I've been. Sometimes, there are scenes or views that can't be captured with my camera like some aerial shots. So it's better to grab a beautiful postcard sold in a souvenir shop.
Early this year, I attended a money exhibition. To my surprise, there's a table selling old postcards. Look what I got.
There were three big boxes of postcards on that table and I feel ecstatic to see one piece of card that has great connection to our history. Look how simple life before. I can say that the water was pretty clean back then.
During our last visit in the Philippines, I noticed that there are still native bancas in provinces and other rural areas. Local people still use it for fishing or for transporting goods and people from one place to another. Some boats are installed with motor for faster means of transportation. That could be good but I still prefer that native one. I love seeing the boat owners paddling. That made it unique, don't you think?
As I said, I collect postcards of places I've been. I didn't expect to enjoy collecting the old ones and places I wish I've been. If I could travel back in time, I would love to see myself on that boat and on that same moment.
