Irish donkey, cute dog, a pub sign...I've had my eyes on this card for quite some time, and now its in my collection thanks to Anastasia :) Also a curious stamp, representing one of the five senses - when you touch it with a warm finger, it changes colour..!

What a fascinating tree! 20 meters high, 8 meters circumference; I am sure there are larger trees in those terms, but the shade area of 1600 square meters, can it be beaten? Its longest branch extends for 57 meters, just wow. Angel Oak is a Southern live oak located in Angel Oak Park on Johns Island near Charleston, South Carolina. The City of Charleston has owned the tree and surrounding park since 1991. Being by some estimates almost 500 years old, imagine what stories it could tell...Local folklore tells stories of ghosts of former slaves appearing as angels around the tree.
Many thanks to Susan :))
Now this is perfect! A house on a hill surrounded by vineyards. Lately I've been facing the dark sides of human behaviour...and could use a break in a place like this. Its funny, this sunny card was written in late april and it was still snowing. Hvala Mirjam!

Peñíscola is a municipality in the province of Castellón, Valencian Community in Spain, located on the Costa del Azahar along the Mediterranean coast. Such a lovely street view with a girl and her grandpa on a bench, and what can I say about the stamps but...fantastic! O Ana, o Ana, srećo mojih dana :P
...that is the title for it I've found on a single web-site depicting this card...I thought at the first glance this was a car, but is indeed a tandem motorcycle. 'The Parisian motorbike La Jumella in 1922, with trailing and leading arms suspensions , front and rear dampers.' Lovely photo, merci Eva :)

The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 486.3 m and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed.
Interesting by-fact! Cable-stayed bridges date back to 1595, where designs were found in Machinae Novae, a book by Croatian inventor Fausto Veranzio.
From my visit to NY last autumn, where I was more impressed by this bridge than anything else.
