Clouds and Sea

This week's Valentine's Day postcards
are dramatically different than the Ribbon and Lace
postcards shared with you last week.

These are much more masculine
with images of sailboats on the sea.
But they are every bit as romantic upon closer inspection.




A closeup of the postcard
with a vertical orientation is shown below.
The cloud formations depict a couple sharing a kiss.
The rippling waves in the foreground
 spell out the word LOVE.

Look closely at the postcard with the horizontal orientation. 
The strong wave crashing against the rock formation
forms the image of a woman
and the rocks show the sturdy face of a man.
The wave is about to embrace the jagged rocks.
Again, the word LOVE is spelled by the calmer waves.

I don't know whether there are additional postcards in this series.  These cards are not commonly seen.
They were purchased at two different postcard shows
and I have never seen the cards
other than when I made these two purchases.
I definitely will be keeping my eyes open for more.  


Until next time, live and love well.
