    • I had the same question – why is a photo being compared to a post card not a compliment in your POV? Just curious…

      • Oh it is a long story but someone I respect in the art community said it to me AND it was not a good critique – I named the photograph he was criticizing POSTCARD ( it is my header too) Obviously it is still something gnawing at me or I wouldn’t have mentioned it after all this time. My take on it is that my photographs he labels postcards are not considered artistic?

  3. Your photo is wonderful of The Guernsey County Courthouse. I was in Cambridge last year for the Dickens Victorian Village at Christmas. The main street of Cambridge is transforms with Victorian scenes of Dickens characters. The Courthouse features an amazing light show synchronized to holiday music. It is wonderful to see. I also visited the The National Museum of Cambridge Glass that holds some amazing pieces. Thanks for bringing back this memory.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  5. I love this one, but I’d prefer one with Murphy or a roadside toilet on my postcard.

    • Toilets especially along roadsides are my specialty.
      Were you a follower for the pink one in the snow? Hope so.
      Not your yard, though. That was sooo funny.

  6. That is a great pic of a formidable building. I’d love to see its interior to see how well it’s been maintained/restored. If done in full Victorian style, it woud be something to see.

    • I think Francine and I need to plan an excursion to Cambridge and check out the interior. My guess is there will be some
