Hello. I'm Alan, in my early 60's, a writer and photographer who formerly worked in IT. You can read some of my stories on
and see my Flickr photos at
Please don't worry about duplicates. I've received so many cards it is impossible to check them all! ANY postcard you want to send is welcome. If you need some suggestions try any of the following
night, space, islands, trains, music stars, TV, bears, books, art, architecture.
Or you could send me a card with your own photography (tell me what is in the picture and why you took it)
Please write to me a little in your own language if it is other than English. I would love to learn some new words and phrases
I enjoy sending postcards made from my own photographs but I've lots of Scottish, Royal Mail and commercial postcards too. I always check your profile and try to choose appropriately before I write the card. See the Flickr set below for my moo cards, past and present.
My hobbies include reading literary novels and listening to music. You can listen to my post-crossing playlist of postcard related songs

PS. Exciting news! I'm one of over a hundred artists that appear on Miniatures 2020, a CD with an eclectic mix of one minute long pieces. Mine's a spoken word story. Be prepared, it has a creepy opening line!
