Another girl, reading

A girl, sitting alone in a theatre and lost in a book, unaware of anything else, a picture which I think will strike a chord for any avid reader.  Is she there waiting for a performance?  Is she a member of staff for the theatre who has found a quiet place and a comfortable seat for her break?

The photographer who took the picture in 1995 was Marco Borggreve.  He is a Netherlands based photographer who specialises in classical music subjects.  Maybe the girl is a musician?

This is a post for Postcard Friendship Friday hosted on Beth Niquette's blog The Best Hearts are Crunchy.


  1. I really like this postcard. When I was young--that would have been me sitting there engrossed in a book to the exclusion of the setting. lol

    Happy PFF!

  2. Wonderful postcard. I can just imagine looking for a quiet place to read my book (or study??). Perfect! Happy PFF!

  3. It's unique and I like it too. Happy PFF and have a great weekend.

  4. That could be me, too! I love it, Sheila.
    Btw, are you going on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela? I would love to hear about your trip there. My husband is very keen on taking me there one day. Enjoy your holiday!

  5. What a lovely picture - nothing is sweeter than being so wrapped up in whatever you are doing that you are oblivious to the world. I find my quilting does that to me much of the time.

  6. She is waiting for the performance to start. :)

    Happy Cinco de Mayo.

  7. Maybe she arrived VERY early to be sure of a good seat!!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
