I'm in for 24 again. Missing the last round was just too frustrating, watching everyone having all that fun.

I'll PM a new adress soon.

Cheek!
Something like:

27,
TW12 3AB,
UK.

will get there. The postcode usually narrows an address down to a half-dozen houses in the same street.

On the other hand some people do prefer:

Mr. Fred Pimplelick Esq.
27 Fruttocking Bowers Lane,
Nether Winkleache,
Bludgington,
The West Riding of Yorkshire,
LUV5 8APS,
Engand,
The United Kingdom.


Thanks for the explanation, Bob. I always had a feeling that some of the information was redundant, at least from the Royal Mail's point of view. Then again, the long address is so nice, with all the ~shires, ~tons, ~burroughs, etc. etc. "Rumpletweezer ran the Dinky Tinky shop in the foot of the magic oak tree by the wobbly dum dum bush in the shade of the magic glade down in Dingley Dell." ;)

Hello all, I'm new to this great site, but not to analogue photography! Very much enjoying both. What is the postcard round please, and how can I get involved? sounds like fun...

Cheers

Hi Adrian,

you can find an explanation here (http://www.apug.org/forums/forum179/26912-apug-postcard-exchange-introduction-schedules.html#post290856).

To get involved you should choose the maximum number of postcards you are going to send and then send a PM to me with your address and that number.

Then early June you will get a PM with a list of addresses and you send one of your postcards to every address on that list. You should get back a postcard from everyone on your list. So you will send postcards to and receive postcards from all over the world. It does not only sound like fun ...

ciao

Sigh! I'm moving house in June and don't have any guarantee of the dark room being ready. I'll sit this one out.

Have fun!

Sigh; I'm going to sit this one out - I've still got one or two from the last round I haven't sent out yet; I had understimated the pain and time cost of buying a house. Hopefully by the time the next round comes up I'll have built my darkroom (:D) in the new place and be ready to re-join.


Oh, for those curious: The definitive guide to UK addresses. (http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/postal.html#uk) As it says - "where to find the most confusing addresses on Earth..." (I've used that resource before when designing databases for the day job.)

rst count me in for 50 again. I am still waiting for 11 cards.
Thanks Art for late arrival.Great night shot of old city hall in Toronto. Better late than never :). this has been a great round and with new people joining in makes next round even more appealing.
Thanks Ruediger for organizing new round.

Cheers Greg

I see many of the same faces. The signup for Round 6 of "Let's all Shoot one Camera" has been lagging, partially because my Butt has been kicked for the last three weeks at work, partly because my attention has been dragged away by a new (to me) 8x10, partly because ????

Take a look at the sign up for Round 6 and see if it interests you. Round 4 has just completed, Round 5 is stuck at the Canadian border (Where the heck is NAFTA when you need it?). We do have a good solid group of regulars and new blood, new vision, is always appreciated.

P.S. I do like your group.
