Imags And Words Week 212 - Correspondence

Welcome and greetings from Sweden!

Mankind has through the ages communicated in one way or another. First with paintings in the caves. The advent of writing brought with a marvellous tool to share ideas, write letters and tell stories. Then came the printingpress which made this even easier - now printed material could be distributed to the people. Then came the typewriter by which people could produce their own articles and stories in a much easier fashion. The coming of computors, cellphones and the digital age has further speeded up the means by which information can be made accessible to the public. This, of course, is not all to the benefit of mankind. Too much information can lead to emotional overload and can also be used in ways not imagined by the instigators of the so called Digital Revolution. This week's theme is Correspondance. Hope this will prove an interesting challenge. Looking forward to you entries.
Wish you all the Best

The New Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo creatively edited or not.
All photos or collages must contain words somewhere on the image or placed in an area on the image most suitable to be seen clearly by all.
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography in a creative manner.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given to the original author, unless unknown, whereby a simple "author unknown" will suffice.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like, comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either contain one word, sayings, statements, quotes, or full poems ... As long as the words fit the theme, it is Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form
with a link back to it being left here or on Muze.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through to the following Saturday.
One post per person only please..

  3. Hi Anders, when I saw your prompt, right away I had this photo in mind. :)

    Your photo contains so much tenderness and warm, but somehow nowadays, people do not use pen and ink for correspondence anymore.

  6. grrrr...I still can't get that link right. back to the drawing board.

  7. lol, I followed your instructions, Anders. I tested the link by emailing it to Leon (LOML) and it worked for him, but not for me. What's up with that? I give up, for now.

  8. Good idea Anders. Of course I saw it from a different angle, but the postman always rings twice.
    Here is mine

  9. Those were the days Anders. All one gets now a days by post is junk mail. Even my bills come via internet. LOL

    1. :D indeed - Mail services is going down the drain. The personal well-thought out touch which a letter gave is gone never to return.
