Nice stuff folks. Thanks very much.

Hello all,

This is to let you know that I've sent 22 postcards already and I will post the last 8 this weekend.
A few minutes ago I found a terrific cyanotype from Anupam and unfortuately only the description of James's photo. The photo and backing must have gotten separated in the mail and the image was lost.
Thanks all for the beautiful prints I've received thus far!!

Don't forget to post your postcards in the Postcard Exchange Gallery so the people that didn't sign up for this round can see what you sent.I'm going to make you wait a bit Kate :D These cards take their time getting around the world. You shoulda joined the fun this round. I would've loved to see some of images from China. I hope you join the next round of exchanges.

Regards, Art.

Mine go out tomorrow, while I'm on the road. It still makes it in the time line.

It was a terrific photo too. I just received it today. But the backing on mine is halfway off too. I also liked the very detailed and helpful technical information. Thanks.

S**t! This doesn’t bode well. I used that same glue in round 6 :confused: … Please, let me know if anyone else receives mine in this condition. I have a few left.

... A few minutes ago I found a terrific cyanotype from Anupam and unfortuately only the description of James's photo. ...James' card made it at least to Germany without any damage and I like it alot. Unfortunately I live not near the border to the Netherlands, otherwise I would have proposed to meet to show you the card. I also got yours and like it. We have friends who are biologists and guess what - they liked especially yours :)

Oh, and just today Anupams cyanotype arrived - no words ...

Including mine, I received 16 cards so far. So there is alot of excitement to come :D

Sneaking in just under the wire, mine were dropped in the post box 5 minutes ago... Many thanks for the great cards received so far this month and for those yet to come.

Cheers, Bob.

Some great cards, including one today from Justin Low. How did you do the printing on the back, and what is the paper?

Tom

A couple of years ago, I did a project for a friend where I took a bunch of photos of her and she wanted to make a calender for her husband. My initial thought was to print the images on RC, and then run the prints through an inkjet or laser printer to print the calender grids on the back of each print - then have the whole thing spiral or comb bound. I learned two things from that experience:
1) It is not possible for a computer to print on the back of an RC print - it is like trying to get a vampire to eat roasted elephant garlic.

2) At the time both Kodak and Ilford made both photo and inkjet paper. Neither company had anybody in either their digital nor analog groups who were aware of the existence of the other.

Ah... The card I received from you several weeks ago was from the 7th exchange?

Hello All,

Three more postcards arrived over the last few days. One from Jeffeb with an interesting subject and unusual viewpoint. Nice shot and great print, thanks. Thanks also to Justin for the street scene. I like the depth and contrasting shapes. Finally a great portrait again from Mick Fagan, I really like the lighting.

Looking forward to those still to come, great round this.

Regards Daniel

Last nights mail had a B&W postcard with a very interesting composition of a japanese style screen, a teapot and tea cups in front of it. But the print looked a bit strange. Flipped it over and was very confused until my wife told me that it was not from the postcard exchange - but had been sent by a local gallery to publicize a new opening :)

Strange how you grab all the postcards in the mail, toss everything else aside as junk, and then find an intruder!
