take five

These stamps were on a very cool postcard sent by a Dutch postcrosser. The card featured a photo called Take Five by Rene de Wit, which had a stern warning that reproduction was forbidden. It brought up once again the blurred meaning of copyright in the electronic realm. In the end, I decided to post the stamps not the card, which was great. The postcrosser, a retired teacher who worked for 42 years while raising children, is now enjoying life with her blind husband in a flat in the center of Amsterdam. Good work by her!
