Ready-made Postcards: Sent out by David Stanley Aponte

When I was out in Lancaster Pennsylvania to either visit my folks or teach at EMU, I often would go to this one antique store on Queen Street that had this nice older gay couple who ran it. They always had discount vintage postcards in a box and I would grab all these postcards and re-use them to send out as postal art. These became my "ready-made" postcard series using these very interesting classic images from around the world. Now I don't remember anyone who I sent this postcards too but I scanned in 33 of them into the computer and sent the original postcards out in the year 2011 mainly from Philadelphia Pennsylvania when I lived at the Hex Factory. They make me think of postcards that On Karawa sent out a little but but the images I picked are a bit more strange and random.
