Hi, all I have really enjoyed the postcards in round 11. School has started and I
am thinking my cards are the last to be mailed. I'm sorry this has taken so long, but you'll get them!
OK, I started the sign up for round 12, it is not sticky yet, so just a pointer to it here: Round 12 sign up (http://www.apug.org/forums/forum179/43127-postcard-exchange-round-12-sign-up.html). The bazaar is now open.

Today I received another interesting post card from Allan Friday"On the Tee" is an interesting view of game of golf. Well done. I think I am few cards short of the the 47 I have send, but never the less it was worth while.
Very good round with many new faces. I hope round 12 will be even more interesting. :D

More cards arriving...:):)
Strawberry by Gordrob-a warm and dreamlike image
Tobacco Field by sean Scoggins-interesting story and mix of warm/cold tones;looks both old and contemporary at once
Spring Cleaning by bastiaan-witty as always, and love the way the windows look like eyes
Fisheye beachscape by SoSmall-a surreal and offbeatly enigmatic selfportrait with subtle colours and one small but crucial splash of red
Cabo san Lucas by Michael Newman-a punchily graphic and painterly beach abstract
Shadow by matti- dreamlike (helped by the vintage lens)and reminds me of turn of the century 'camerawork' images with its narrow focus-superb
1898 excavation by Blackmelas-pure Indiana Jones as others have said;fascinating details
Thanks to all!

Got Allen's "On the Tee" postcard. Reminded me I only hit the links 4 times this year! Not enough, not enough.

One more postcard came today from Sean of a field of tobacco plants in North Carolina. I have fond memories of NC when I visited a town called Zebulon (I kid you not, look it up). Nice card. Thanks.

Received one more postcard today! Thanks to Lynda who is also a fan of Kodak Infrared! Great postcard Lynda. A surreal graveyard image from down the road from where you live!

hi! i have a confession to make that i found a stack of postcards that did not make it into the mailbox---all of the ones heading to the US. i remembered only having stamps for Canada and international and tucked the US ones away when i moved---only to discover i'd forgotten the last stack just recently---so i hope everyone has received a card from me by now and if not just let me know and one can be on it's way soon!

I've been waiting for a bit so I'd have a whole bunch of cards.
Ruediger- Summer is over--That's a great first attempt at still life...nice deep tones.
Mick-house guest --I really like your high key look, great model and interesting pose.
Mark-Beijing--very interesting scene, mysterious...even for this vegetarian ;)
Allen- Bronze Casting--I'm completely amazed by the tonality of the 3200, smooth and beautiful!
Birger-mirrors--wonderful and abstract, are you in the photo somewhere?
Jon- mission San Jose--absolutely beautiful, the details on the door are superb.
Pete- skaters--your timing was flawless and the hat...the hat! Super cool!
Adam- The Cyclone--nice lines and curves in this, the fire hydrant and the post look like spectators waiting for something to happen.
Dianna-little girl--a lovely timeless image, soft and flowing.
Thank you to everyone who sent a card. This was a great exchange.

We are actually in Round #12 which I'm in as well. I have most of these postcards you are describing and they are definitely round#12. It gets confusing with so many rounds, eh!

So I received a wonderful surprise and that's Samad's postcard from Singapore! Thanks.
