Sorry, I have been out of the loop. I haven't even shot mine yet :( apologies. I had something specific in mind and have just been too busy to get it done.

So far I have received very nice cards from Peter Harris, Jacco, Bethe Fisher / Winger, and Sam H. These I have arranged prominently on my wall- they are interesting and very different. Thanks to everyone who is sending them.

Again, my apologies for being so far behind.

I sent all of mine over a month ago. Someone at my post office must hate Polaroids.

Nudes on polaroids not in envelopes will definitely NOT make it through the post office, and will most likely get you a visit from the postal inspector asking some rather stern questions about your intentions for said material.

OK people, this second round is dying a silent death. I think I got 5 postcards out of 7. Others? Let's all post updates. Thanks.

Same here, 4 out of 7. But with a spare instant postcard of my own next to them, there's 5 out of 8 on the wall :D.

So far, I have received instants from theBanana, Pete H., Winger and Sam H.

Same here, and surprisingly, none from within the USA. Maybe our Postal Service had the scrutiny turned up because of the holiday mail crunch.

FWIW, I got a new one600 camera, perhaps to be used on the next round.

That's OK RK. Surprisingly, most of mine that got through were people outside the USA.

So maybe we should do this round again?

I can't even remember who's in my group anymore. The last one I got was from Keeds of lots of mushrooms. I think that brings the total up to... 5? or something. Yeah, 5 (I double checked going back through posts as I think some didn't make it to my fridge gallery yet ;) ) Looks like just Martin B and Nicole who we've not received prints from yet in group1? It's been such a long drawn out exchange, maybe they need reminding, there was a whole festival season since we started this to make people forget. I don't think it's bad going that I received 5 out of 5 sent so far and only 1 one of those was enveloped.

tried to send mine out today and was politely told they have to be in an envelope so i will put them out tomorrow or thursday at the latest.the post office min size is 3x5 inches so if we do this again i think we should let everyone know upfront to send it in an envelope or tape it to a 3x5 note card.

On the other hand the UK doesn't bat an eyelash at a polaroid in the post. My UK recipient got his polaroid from me overnight, just like normal first class post should do. The UK postal system seems to handle *tiny* things as I've gotten some of the smallest ever christmas/birthday cards over here... :D
Bit of a shame that the US and apparently Greece have gone so automated that they don't accept anything under 3x5inches.

i think it may be due to mail processing equipment.at least that is my thought,maybe in the uk they are not as into spending your money as our government is at spending ours so processing equipment could be different.

Hello Postcard pals,
To date I have now received 5 out of 7 cards, 71.4 percent. The last received was a nice shot from Richard Kmiel of an evening stroll with his trusty hound titled "Going Home", Thank you Richard.

I have not received postcards from Scott Davis or Keith Williams. Were these sent and lost in transit?

Did Richard Kmiel or Bethe Winger get my "Fudruckers" neon sign postcard?
I would like to know if these postcards made it to destination please.

It appears that sending postcards under 3.25 x 5.5 inches is NOT reliable at least here in the U.S.

All the best,
Sam H.
