Wind'nsea Beach

The postage stamps I ordered a couple of weeks ago arrived yesterday. I ordered 24 cent stamps to use on my postcards. Here are the images I used.

Wind'nsea Beach is in San Diego and decades ago I used to spend a lot of time there. These pictures were taken in winter 1971. Winter is my favorite time to visit the beach but in San Diego 35 years ago, any day was a great day to go to the beach.

Back then I had not heard of the artist, Edward Hopper. I didn't discover him until a few years later when I went to San Francisco and there was an exhibit of his works at the de Young Museum that I was lucky enough to see. Ever since then I've collected Edward Hopper books and I call these my Edward Hopper photographs.
