Postcards from California is a set of video postcards illustrating my time spent in the Golden State.

The videos are listed below. Both Vimeo and YouTube versions are provided. In general, the Vimeo versions will deliver the better picture quality, due to the infamous YouTube compression; however, Vimeo can have performance issues.
