Another pile of cards arrived t'other day;

NYC by Doug Smith-lovely turn of the century feeling reminiscent of work by Coburn etc. Very dreamlike.

Andorra by Pep Miro-very similar mood and feeling, and complememts the previous pic well, especially with the rich warm printing.

Woodmont Orchards by Johnathon King-the old barn leans drunkenly as it slowly retorns to the earth. Reminds me of Robert Adams' work (I'm a big fan of his BTW).

Mannheim memorial by Ingobohn-profoundly moving and disquieting.

Jessie by Mick Fagan-has she been taking posing lessons from Kevin and Perry LOL? And as Morrissey put it "I wear black on the outside, because black is how I feel on the inside/and if I seem a little strange, it's because I am".

Thanks again to you all-another great round so far!

I posted my cards this afternoon! Sorry for the delay. Three different shots this time - I look forward to hearing that you've received them. I still owe you an update on what I've received thus far.

Peter;
Calumet has it, and I think I saw someone mention they had ordered some from B&H.

Most of my cards are out, a couple have bounced for being too small, and I've got a few more to finish up.

Hello all! Here's what I've received thus far (in no particular order):

Jonathan King's Woodmont Orchards - nicely captures how the barns are setttling into the landscape
Hal's Ice cream cone - Yummy!
Brian Chambers' Seattle at night - great shot - provides me with inspiration to give night photography a try
Brian Jeffery's Walk this Way - Anything shot w/ a C330 is aces in my book - I'm still trying to train myself to compose in a rectangle when I know I'm going to print that way.
Geoff Hill's fisherman - I love surfcasting! Nice composition.
Pepmiro's Valley - another outstanding card - thank you for the effort and consistent quality of your cards - also for the subjects - Andorra's travel & tourism bureau should reward you!
Peter Schrager's Flashdance - A real slice of Americana! Nice to know the local Miller distributor wants the club to succeed
Ruediger's Mannheim wall - Very powerful and very well done
Tim Gray's Casino - I knew where this was before I flipped the card over - nice image. I hear Asbury Park is on the upswing these days
Erik Gould's Big Bottles - I see so many stories in this card
Valerie's Cecilia - Very nice depth & tone
Mike G's lith print - something different, indeed! the tone brings out the age and worn character of the wood beautifully
Doug Smith's Apartment building - I like the combination of light, shadow and shape
Mike Wilde's Old Mill - I love images like this - for me, it's easy to imagine the mill in its heyday
Alex's Airshow - nice to have the foreground - much more interesting to me than had it been just the jets

Thanks - and to think there should be another 15 coming - what a treat!

I got a lot of very good postcard lately. Thanks everyone for the card. I am thinking about put them on a display board, like other people did with the cards.

There should be some more cards coming my way, can't wait to get them.

BTW, dose any one know "Lindow"'s address, I have one extra card try to send to him.

Thanks everyone.

Mine are just going out today to US recipients, others will go out on Monday (requires a trip to the post office). I am really enjoying the cards, I hate that it's taken me so long to get mine out!

Three more cards came my way.
Wonderfully sharp night image of Seattle sky line from Brian Chambers
geoffhill's of a lone fisherman on a vast Northumberland coast. Beautiful tonal values in HP5+ well composed.
Frosty grass on a lake in Norway from Birger A. Feels cold and isolated.

Thanks everyone
Greg

I mailed mine out this morning. I got a bit of sticker shock when I found out the the Int'l postcards cost $.90 each to send.

Holy cow. My whole stack cost about $25.00 US to send this time.

And mine went out Saturday morning.

Spent more on "foreign" postage than domestic. :-)

Try $52 for this batch. International $1.55 Can. It is well worth it I think. One less time going to McDonald's :p , and lot more healthy.
