Moments of Colour
Moments of Colour is a series of cards, 52 of them, produced by a Swiss company, ABC. It doesn't tell you on the reverse of the card where this scene is though I'd guess it could part of the Canal du Midi in France. I'm only going by "Brochettes" over a shop window so it's just a wild guess. The card was sent from Poland.
The colour is added in an interesting way because it isn't just the effect you can achieve from a photo editing program. the black and white portion of the card is matt but the colour is high gloss. According to the ABC (A Boss and Co) website, it's partly lacquered. This series of postcards was one of the first to be produced to Forest Stewardship Council standards, in 2007.
