Sepia Saturday # 64

Sepia Saturday
My new collection of post cards has brought me many hours of pleasure.
Just looking up the site and info on the internet has been great.
I love anything about Europe.

Click on to read and for greater detail.

My postcard
From Castle Series Postcards so there is an entire series of postcards with pictures of castles on them I guess.

It says

About James Patrick
If we had talked 
a decade ago, we’d probably never talk about photography. If we met five years ago, the topic of marketing wouldn't have come up. If we met just a few years ago, I can guarantee it wouldn’t be while I was giving a keynote speech. A significant majority of my life has consisted of spontaneously traveling down unknown roads; each one I’ve taken has branched into a multitude of new experiences and life changes for which I am extremely grateful to have been a part of.
I’ve always found it interesting how children have so many ideas for what they want to become when they are an adult. Yet as they get older, their vision for what they want to be often becomes narrowed and selective. Thus they no longer have dreams of achieving the impossible. Rather, sense and reason has conditioned them to aim towards what is readily available.
So in many ways, I like to think that I never grew up. There are just too many interesting things to be passionate about. From photography, to writing, to marketing, to public speaking; I don’t look at it as a division of my time. I look at it as surrounding myself with opportunities. My dream is that I never limit myself from what could be achieved by traveling down
I found this photos on eBay for sale.

This is fascinating to me.

The changes that occur in us -- our interests etc -- can be surprising and keep life interesting.

Never grow up! Now there's a Peter Pan lady after my own heart! LOL

...and now your post has brightened my day as well! I too am very fond of castles and especially when I can go and walk around one...I was in a very fascinating one Dover Castle in Dover, and they had an unbelievable amount of things to see besides a church and we got to go through the tunnels that they have only recently opened up...that is an amazing tour! Thanks for you post, it was lovely!

The card from Edinburgh must be quite old; I tried enlarging it to get a better view of the bus but it was no easier to see. I wonder if we can date the card somehow.
When I was at St Andrews University we used to visit Edinburgh for the rugby internationals at Murrayfield; the view from the castle is magnificent.

Your post reminded me how much I would like to visit Edinburgh. I also like castles, particularly those that are half in ruins.

Here's to you and may you continue morphing! I have found the same thing with my interests shifting in retirement, I attributed that to leaving a profession and moving cross the country, but maybe it's a natural progression of what we can do to enjoy our lives thanks to opportunities if we sieze them. I like this collection of castles, you could weave a tale about them!

I like to find new interests and look up things about my postcards too.

I love that castle in Edinburgh. The walk up the Royal Mile with all the interesting buildings along the way including the beautiful church. And then the room in the castle showing the weaponry. The sword Sir Walter Wallace used was huge. I simply don't know how anyone was able to use these weapons. I'd have had to drag it behind me and hoped someone would just trip over it.

I know of nothing finer than wandering down roads not knowing where I am going, whether figuratively or for real. And there is no better guide to the unknown than old photographs and postcards.

I've been collecting postcards for many years - mainly to enrich my study of genealogy and family history - but I didn't realize how much I was going to enjoy roaming all over the web collecting background information. It's really fascinating!
This year I've begun using Google News Archives. You can find some tantalizing bits of information and often they don't appear anywhere else on the internet.
Have a great day,
