California is my birth state, though I don't put much weight behind such a statement. We should seek to identify with the spaces we are a part of, not ones which we feel are owed to us by birthright. Yet, it's impossible to tell the story of an identified landscape without living it.
These postcards, flashes of scenes, say without words what I can take home with me. A view of an area that some say should belong to me. Rejecting that, 'Postcards From California' tells stories not of the people or lives within, as they could never be truly captured by me, but simple documentations of a land I've seen.
