My Faves- HK Stamps

Originally posted on Nov. 1, 2007.I am proud that I am from Hong Kong and there are a lot of things about it to be proud of, like stamp graphics! I know you must be laughing right now, it is nerdy but I have a father who's been collecting stamps ever since he was young. I think the graphics of the stamps are often cutting edge instead of traditional and cutesy, like US stamps tend to be. I found these stamps from my favorite Flickr group Hong Kong Nostalgia, I recognized them and brought me smiles because I used to take out dad's stamp albums just to admire these designs.

My brother is in Hong Kong right now. The first of the family to venture any farther east than Europe. We are all living through his email reflections and we are amazed. He can't stop talking about the food, the organized rush and the openness of the people. I can't wait to share these stamps with him!
