I found a copy of Boring Postcards at the Goodwill Bins in Portland, OR, a few weeks ago. Luckily there were a couple BPCs tucked inside. This is one of them.

I think this group will have to be closed down as we all discover that nothing is truly boring

I was thinking the same, Jennifer. It's actually a nicely composed photo too.

This really makes you question what makes something boring, doesn't it? Ruth's postcard of a bit of Hadrian's Wall is the opposite for me because at one time I lived in that bit of England, loved that area, and all sorts of things came to mind about it.

What are those things coming out of the ground in the top right corner of Evpatoria postcard? They are incredible.

I want to show you some of my soviet Boring postcards.

This one is from Evpatoria, little town in western coast of Republic of Crimea, my native peninsula. It shows the Promenade and Theater Square.This one shows the Boring Zemchuzhina Hotel in Sochi. It was printed in 1979.

Boring Ukrainian Sanatorium card. I feel longing and nostalgia when I look at this card ...

Ayudag Mountain in Gurzuf, small countryside on the seaside. These are very native landscapes to me.

I like this group and will send some of my Boring postcards to Valentine. If you want to get one of postcards like this or exchange Boring cards, text me.
