Postcrossing Spotlight: BlackDrago from Ukraine!
- How did you come across Postcrossing? What got you hooked?
It was a post in my friend’s diary on journals.ru. I have always been attracted to something unusual... and what can be more extraordinary than paper postcards in the age of electronic correspondence? And then it turned out that this is a very interesting process, you can see a lot of interesting postcards, stamps, read the people who live on the other side of the planet Earth.
- Do you have any other interesting hobbies?
I'm interested in the Star Wars universe - I am the administrator on a site and forum dedicated to this world. I translate short texts and beta-read works of other authors. I like to assemble plastic models of the real and the fantastic vehicles. Photography. Cross-stitching. Sometimes I even manage to find some time for all these things... sadly there are only 24 hours in a day!
- Show us your mailbox, your mailman/mailwoman, your postoffice or the place where you post or keep your postcards!
This is Post Office from which my postcards often hit the road:
- Show and tell us about your favorite received postcard to date, and what makes it special.
I think that almost all of my cards are favourites!
What makes them special? It's the fact that someone took the time to read my profile and tried to pick up the card in accordance with the wishes, and wrote something just for me.
I have favorite authors as well, for example, French artist Severine Pineaux. She has a very beautiful dragons and cats.
And if we talk about the subject of cards, there is a series of "Darth Vader and Son" that I really like:
- Have you met any other members in real life?
Yep. I participated in postcrossers meetings in Sevastopol and in Yekaterinburg (Russia, Ural), when I was there on business. This is in Sevastopol:
And here we are in Yekaterinburg:
- Is there anything that you are passionate about?
Sevastopol.. I really love my city and his great history. It is really my passion and obsession. Sevastopol has always been a military city, the base of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia. I hope that he will once again be such, and not turn into just a resort.
Warships standing in bays and covered with morning fog is one of the most beautiful sights I can imagine.
