Postcards From the World: Windows on Russia

I’ve received several interesting Postcrossing cards recently. This one is from Ludmila, a Postcrosser in Moscow who develops mobile apps and lives with her husband, two daughters, and two cats. She says she loves sending and receiving postcards because it is a chance to learn more about the different parts of the world, including things that can’t be found in the guidebooks. The card is a bit scuffed up, with creases and marks from its long journey through the mail, but that only adds to its story.

The photo on the card is titled “Nalichniki,” which refers to this style of traditional ornate wooden window frames. The photographer, Ivan Hafisov, has set out to photograph as many of these charming architectural details as he can before they disappear. Follow those links for details and more photos.
