Hard to find but if you have a postcard of a man or woman holding up fish they caught fishing. I would love that. Images of fishmonger or fishwife selling fish at a market. I'm not really interested in pictures of just a fish or fish out of the context above.
I do like cards with exaggerated BIG fish postcards. Here are few examples. https://photos.app.goo.gl/L2JopwNSiMz89thH7 If you are able to put them in an envelope so they are not torn up by the postal machines... thanks
Again: Don't worry about the card as I appreciate ANY card you send, handmade or just a piece from the box your local food comes in (cornflakes, cakes, soap, chocolate.....) If your an artist, make me a card and sign it. Send it in an envelop and I will save the card until your famous. I'm 68 years old, so please become famous quickly. :-)
