I too am in favour of keeping this exchange international. I admit that postage can be a little expensive, but usually try to balance out the number of cards I can afford over the year. There are 3 rounds, so if possible, I try to do one at the max, and the other two as a number of choice.

Looking forward to another great round!

Rüdiger, in for the maximum again.

All of my cards are already printed, this time I'll send out early, instead of later.

Only been home a few hours, in-between sleeping sessions I have mixed fresh developer for my holiday films, I start developing tomorrow. :D

Mick.Hi Mick, good that you had a save trip home. Ingo and I already developed our films that same evening. There are some interesting images on my two rolls of film. Maybe one will make it for the postcard. At least there is one which will go out today for the lith print exchange.

All the best
Rüdiger

All my other exchange obligations are now at least on their way, so I'm in again, for 24.

Same address in Delta as my last couple of exchanges.

Let the pondering begin :).

My daughter in living in new Zealand for a few years, with the possibility it will become permanent. Today I was reading her blog "Skiffer the Driffter" and came across the following regarding post cards:

"Actually, the best postcards I tend to get are blank. My dad sends them, or more likely his secretary Jean does. They only words are my address, the return address, and the type of information you find under photographs and fine paintings in an art gallery.


The information describes the picture on the other side of the card; one that my dad has definitely taken. These are not your usual family photos from a cheap digital camera. His photographs usually involve tripods, cameras that look like they came straight from the 1800s (and which he often built himself), and types of film and development that most people have never even heard of. The photos are invariably amazing.


I love these cards for the same reason I love to write postcards. The cards remind me that someone very far away loves me, is thinking of me, and has taken the time to create something unique to send to me. They've taken time away from all the demands and people who surround them daily to do something nice for me. And I just think that's really special."

Her post got me thinking.

I wonder if it is possible to get her included in the exchange. If it is, I will do two post cards (one for me and one for the cards sent to her). What do you think?

Not a problem for me, I can manage this. As long as you send two different cards ;)

Well and you need to PM her name and address and how many postcards she is going to "send".

Cheers

I was going to suggest we include Allen's daughter as a one time optional 'bonus' address (the address being given by PM of course) in the same way as we can send an extra card to Kodak, Ilford, Fuji etc. However Rüdiger's suggestion of a 'virtual' participant works just as well for me.

I'm happy to send out an extra card.

HI there .... hope I am not too late put me in for 30 this time too ........... It is addictive and love the idea of the extra card reaching all the way to NZ ...

I'd be happy to make an extra card for Allen's daughter. She deserves a deluge of postcards after that nice blog.

My 30 postcards are finally in the post..... Could I please join again for this round? I don't mind sending one to Allen's daughter in NZ.
Right now I have no darkroom but I can get an image printed from film at the lab that I work at if that's okay. I would like to send 30 as per my usual amount. I usually send a couple extra to some Apug members who send me an extra card.

So here is the plan, Shannon (Allens daughter) is in the exchange, so whoever has her on the list, please send a card to her, it is not optional. You will get a card from Allen back. If you also have Allen on your list, please also send a card to him, you will get a second and different card from him in return.

And here is the list, there are still open seats and the booking window is open until tomorrow. I think it is again a vital mix of well known long term postcarders and new faces. I am looking forward to it.
