Most of mine just went into the mail, and I need to print and label a few more.
Sorry for the delay folks.

My postcards are printed and are now sitting on my secretary's desk. She will address them tomorrow and get them to the post office.
Sorry for the long, long, long delay.

Got Barry's Lincoln the other day. A very sharp print. Very well printed. Thank you, Barry.

Barry - I got your postcard today. I really like the subject and the crop -- it works in many different orientations. My father has a '78 Lincoln that he's trying to get rid of -- even though it's not nearly as nice a car as the '48, you've given me some inspiration to go and photograph it before it gets sold (if that ever happens).

Thank you, Chris, Rachelle. I'm glad you like it.

I also received bdial's postcard. Thank you very much. Very nicely printed and an interesting image. Old cars make such a great subject. Where do you hail from, Barry? I couldn't make out the postmark's city of origin.

I got Allen's Castle yesterday. Man, I love the detail inherant in this print. I can hardly wait to sick my loupe on those walls.

I too got Barry's car this week. :)

Received a card from bdial of an old Lincoln. I like the mixture of high and low values with very little in between. This image gives the viewer a lot to look at. Well done Barry:) When I found Allen Friday's card in my mail box I said to my self "This is not in Iowa!". Nice story on how this castle came to be in Ireland. (Since I did not send Allen a card in R18, this may be a R17 card.) Thanks.

Allen's card arrived in Australia this week too. :)

Just got Allen's Rockfleet Castle. Very nice light on the subject and trees and lovely clouds. Well worth the wait.

Allen -- your card arrived today as well. A very nice reminder of my time in Ireland where I spent most of my time chasing old structures like this down some very iffy roads at times. It was a lot of fun! Great story behind the castle as well. Thanks so much.

Allen's card arrived today.
I love this really nice shot of an old castle, taken at the moment with beautifull light, nice composition en print.
Also the historical information gives an extra dimension to the subject.

Dead Beat Post card Exchanger has my darkroom up and running again. Sorry for the delay!! I can bear the usual stink eye and hisses from the group but a darkroom bullet that could not be dodged. I will be in the darkroom printing this Saturday to send out. Sorry all for the delay!!! Peter
P.S. I'll print a second different image for the next round at the same time.

It's always a treat to get a postcard regardless of how delinquent it is. I'll be looking forward to your card.

I finally took some time to go through the cards received so far for round 18, and stumbled upon a round 17 card.
I received Allen Friday's Rockfleet Castle card a few weeks ago. Lovely card, lots of detail, very interesting. Thanks!

I have looked back through my RD17 cards and discovered that I am 5 or 7 shy. I no longer have my address list so I cannot say who I did not receive one from.

Mine are coming as I'm a dead beat postcarder!!!!! I will post when they are mailed.
