Hello. I'm Alan. I'm in my fifties, an amateur photographer, history buff and reader who works in IT.
I'm currently taking a course looking at the poetry and lives of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. If you have related cards I'd love to receive them, or have views on either or both of these poets, I'd be interested to hear about it.
My hobbies include reading literary novels, writing fiction and listening to music. You can see what I'm listening to right now at
You can also listen to my post-crossing playlist of postcard related songs
ANY postcard you want to send is welcome. If you need some suggestions try any of the following
***ancient monuments (standing stones, cairns, ruined temples, artifacts in museums)
**Eurovision Song Contest - anything related to the annual TV festival
**art/illustration of your nation, especially where the painting is telling a story
**the space age (spaceships, astronomy, planets, comets etc.)
**singers, pop and rock bands from your country
*public transport (buses, trains, ferries, trams etc.)
*maps of your region
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 using Moo.com, but I've also lots of Scottish 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.

PS If you want to see my nephew's band IBG and their latest song, Silver Sun, check this out. He's the one with the long beard in the outdoor shots.
