Stamp Collection or Photography 集邮或摄影 ...


Before I started photography, I did ponder about taking up Stamp Collection or even "philately" (which is the study of stamps and postal history) as a hobby to grow old with ... 


The Hong Kong Disney stamps I collected in 2001 currently fetches a good price in the Hong Kong Stamp market ...



One of my favorite stamp series are Cartoon Characters, the one from Hong Kong and Singapore are my favorite ...



This is also a collectible series of Chinese Zodiac
 from Australia, it took me some effort to get this full set ....



A normal postage stamp but the set like this is a collectible's item ....



On of the Stamps collection I look for every year from Hong Kong is the annual publishing of the stamp for the Chinese New Year ....

Someone told me that I could always do both Stamp Collection and Photography ....  
so, actually I am still collecting stamps as a small part of my hobby ....

Challenges for patience.

May you receive only happiness throughout images, upon letters and inside your camera.

Someone gave him some good advice for shooting very well and the stamp collection is beautiful, a sign that is dedicated to what he does.

As nice as those stamps look, I'm sure glad you took up photography as I enjoy your photos very much! Oh, and that's interesting you've been to Tucson before!

No one said photography had to be one's ONLY hobby, (although for addicts, it pretty much takes up all free time). How wonderful to combine stamp collecting and photography. Love the beautiful bright colors.
