Living the modern digital age, we tend to think that any old photo with an ‘antique’ or ‘old-time sepia’ filter on it is just as good or better than a real photograph from 100 years ago. But is that really true? When was the last time you actually looked at a film-based photograph? The most sensitive photographers still claim that the film and accompanying development techniques always result in more subtlety of feeling for light and dark than the best digital cameras can capture. The image on this card is a case in point. It reproduces a silver gelatine print made by an oblate of our monastery of the Path to Croagh Patrick, County Mayo, the ancient and famous pilgrimage site where, according to tradition, St. Patrick fasted and prayed for forty days in the year 441.

This card measures 105 x 148 mm (A6 size) and comes with a matching white envelope. This blank greeting card is made with easily writable 300 gsm uncoated paper
