Several days ago, I was going through some old photo albums. I stopped putting photos in albums a few years ago, so actually looking at a photo album now seems so old-fashioned.
Anyway, I forgot that I used to like to put postcards in my trip photo albums, particularly when I couldn’t take a suitable picture of the subject myself. That is one of the benefits of postcards, the photography is generally excellent and taken from vantage points often unavailable to tourists.
I was looking through my trip photos of Croatia (one of my favourite places in the world) and was delighted to find two lost postcards that I hadn’t seen in years.
The first one, below, is from Split
This is an artist’s rendering of Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace as it would have looked in Diocletian’s time (circa 305). The modern city of Split has grown up and within the palace in an incredibly unique and fascinating way.
My other find was from another Roman ruin in Croatia:
This is the Arena in Pula – one of the largest, most in-tact Roman amphitheatres in the world.
I have subsequently decided that my postcards will be more greatly enjoyed by me in amongst the Collection rather than dusty photo albums.
