Germany - Black & White Portraits

December 28, 2014

Apologies about the lack of entries over the Christmas/New Years break.  It was a little difficult to find time to scan and upload cards.  I did receive a few lovely cards as you will see over the coming days.

First up today is a lovely portrait of Katharine Hepburn.  Peggy sent it from Germany and wrote that Hepburn is one of her favourite actresses of all time.  She especially loves her movies with Cary Grant.  However, The African Queen is her all-time favourite.  I loved The African Queen too!

Courtney wrote that she sent me the most famous writer she could find.  Courtney says that she is an expat like me who is living in a new country because of her husband.  She has lived in Germany for a few months and it is great.  

She writes that her favourite film is The Conversation, an old movie from the 1970s.  She continues that in addition to science and philosophy, Einstein wrote poetry and was a prolific letter-writer. She joked that it is too bad he was too early for Postcrossing!

I think I have had this stamp before, but this one is quite a good example of it.

Thank you both!
