Published 29th May 2007, 10:58am
Cayman Islands Postal Service’s first stamps of 2007 are well worth the wait. The new series, titled “Cayman Islands Scenes”, consists of photographs by some of the Islands’ best-known photographers – Patrick Broderick, Courtney Platt and Gary White.
There are seven images, depicting Little Cayman, Cayman Brac, the East End blowholes, the harbour front, Poinciana blooms and relaxing sunsets, in this collection. The denominations are 20¢, 25c, 30¢ 40¢, 75¢ and $1. There will also be a first day cover and three postcards.
“The landscape of the Cayman Islands is the subject of this series. Our islands are a photographer’s dream, and we thought ‘Why not share a few of these images with the rest of the world?’” said Assistant Postmaster General Marketing Tara Bush.
“We have gorgeous beaches, spectacular sunsets, and beautiful flowers and we are located in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. This makes for great photography, and I would like to thank all the photographers who participated. In fact, we were given so much material that we are thinking of making this into a two-part series,” she added.
Cayman Scenes will be released 26 June. Contact Philatelic Manager Karen McField at 946-4757 for more information.
Another new stamp issue, the Centenary of Scouting, is scheduled to be released 9 July.
