I have a preference for black and white postcards. Black and white to me means that the photography is excellent. I myself am not a very good photographer so I love to see a really good photo. Not just technically but in its subject matter too.
In Italy I came across a female photographer who specializes in photographing babies: Anne Geddes. Some photos are funny like babies hanging in cans on a washing line or dressed up as flowers.
But others are serious and beautiful, like this one:
The Anne Geddes postcard I have sent this week to Domenica in Germany is the one below:
It is my favorite. It tugs several of my strings. First of all it touches on my mother instincts. Such a gorgeous tiny, helpless baby!
But it also touches on my spiritual side. What a beautiful miracle of creation! I’m a Christian and I believe we were created by God. Every new baby is another little miracle. Look at those large hands gently holding and protecting the tiny baby...I imagine the love of the Lord being like this.... loving me and giving me shelter and protection. It really moves me.
I bought several of these and this is my last one. I hope Domenica likes it.
I hope you like it too and I’d like to know if it stirs something in you. And if so, which/what emotion...
Bye for now,
