Postmarks

Hopeless case of the hopeless cases.  I’m a romantic… stumbled across this website awhile back and look forward to their next entry.  Whether they become lovers or remain friends, this star crossed visual is a feast d’jour amour for the eyes.

and my appetite is insatiable.

This isn’t a guy, a girl, and a pizza place.  It’s human connection and making something extraordinary out of the ordinary.  It’s building.  There is someone who used to care about me a great deal [I hope he still does 😉 ], once he sent me a card of the Brooklyn Bridge on it.  We were knee deep in love feeling the pangs of a long distance affair.  He wrote, ” Since I’ve been looking around today for any kind of bridge to you I thought I’d send one of the stringest possibilities.  If it doesn’t completely do the trick, it may do enough….” and it did the trick.  It made my heart smile in the simplest way- Joy.  It’s the little things.

postmarks is the creation of ben and charlie (ch.), two friends who have never actually met. in 2002 they started sending these photographs back and forth, eventually documenting them as a livejournal. the idea was to have a sort of polaroid pen-pal, but to the surprise of them both, the project soon developed quite a following.

ben is currently living in baltimore, maryland.

ch. is currently living in oakland, california.

You can see/read/view additional photos via Ben and Charlie’s LiveJournal !
