A little bit of everything through the lens.

Cards from Across the Pond... (9)

Thursday, March 18, 2010 by , under

Without a doubt, internet has brought us many ways to communicate, make it much easier too!

It is also the internet(plus a little bit of laziness of course) that has eliminate many traditional form of communication such as letters and cards, well, for me at least.

I admit, I have substitute letters and cards with emails, ecards, and now facebook messages. Yes, I'm that lazy...

Still, I'm very excited whenever I found a personal card in the pile of junk mail I received daily. Especially when the thoughtful cards are from thousands of miles away...across the Pacific pond...

Even if my friends send me cards ,I will ask them to send ecards. ( I would say " don't waste money to buy cards !)

Anyway , I like the first 3-D card .

Cheryl - I agreed! Gotta love the classic.

mimid3vils - Of course!

Sonia - Yup, not many now but still very much appreciated! Looking forward to your card...hehehe...

Bakeling - Nice of you to be considerate like that but not me...hahaha...

The first card is not a 3-D card, just good art work I think. I was surprised to see it came out in 3-D through the camera.

You are right, internet really kill those creativity and the good feeling in receiving cards or letter from someone we know...
But back to reality, when there are too many cards and letters, we will have a headache too.. wanna keep them or toss them away??

虽然科技很发达了,但是总觉得实体的卡片还有亲手写的字句更能让人觉得温暖:)

funmama - Yeah, you're right. With real card, storage could be an issue but I don't have that many though.

温馨小屋 - Of course! I bet your son's drawing will become very valuable someday!

summer - Yup, handwritten one is still the best!
