Ha ha, the funniest spam I ever saw. But you forgot to tell us about how many postcards you are going to send ;) And I need your address too.

Hey and btw, the one camera project is fun, I was myself in two rounds (2 and 4). Hmmm, then it is time for round 6 ...

... 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.

Now that I (finally) sent my cards for round 13, I guess it's okay to sign up for the next round.

Count me in for the max. Same address.

Are we crying out to see other parts of the world, now that air fares with fuel surcharges are going to price themselves out of reach?

Are we overly patronizing of Canada Post, who gives us no cut in price for mailing a postcard?

Any other random reasons?

I look over the list and from past postings and names I recognise see at least 6 out of the 42 are from Canada.

It seems that we are a little over represented here, even if the population we are drawing from is just the mostly English speaking first and second world populations.

When I first started in Round #5 there was only a couple of us joining in the exchange but it's so much fun! (and addictive) And yes it is a little pricey. That's why you limit yourself to 20 or 30 cards to keep the costs somewhat lower.
And yes, it is pretty cool to get a postcard from Australia, Andorra, Norway, Germany, and England.

I think there were more people from the UK once.

I know my last two lists were "foreign" heavy. I had more postcards heading overseas than staying in North America. Just the way the numbers randomize! :)

Hi Ruediger,

Looks like you've rejected my extremely long address!

Can you sign me up for 40 please?

Cheers

Mike, your address is my personal favourite! I love telling people that I'm sending a postcard there!

Right now at the non profit artist run center that I belong they are having a very interesting postcard show by two of our members. www.xchangesgallery.org

... Looks like you've rejected my extremely long address!Oh no, I just removed your name from the list for a moment to hit 42. Just because 42 is nicer than 43, even though 43 would have been prime ;)

That was my fault, you are on the list now.

PS: And I am with Kate regarding your address :)

Well there was one round where I sent every single card overseas, not cheap, but that's the way it is.

Once I think there were four from Australia, generally there are a couple to three.

This means I get cards predominately from overseas which is great.

I have just noted that there is a new town in Germany listed, where possible cards may come from, Jena.

Great place, it has one of the nicest technical photographic museums, I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

That is the reason, I think this is a wonderful exchange!

Mick.

Count me in for 30 cards again, this round. Will be back from this achingly long photo shoot in Japan, with just enough time to print and post (5 days) before another long shoot in the US.

Cheers from Down Under.
