An update on cards received over the last few weeks:
Jim17x"Speedy" My speedy has never looked that good. Sadly it's been hiding in it's box without a lens for that last 30 years. jimo"Beer Can" Interesting shot. Building design inspired by a few late night sessions? BoxBrownie"Floating Leaf" Lovely play of shadow and light - once you figure out which way is up. kraker"What's in a name?" Yes, great place to stumble upon and have a camera at the ready. MJS"Skin Tight" Just a pair hanging around. Nicely seen. Oxleyroad"Old New Windmill" Once a common sight in this part of the world as well. Christopher Coy"Music in the Street" Dreadlocks and all.
and a mystery card "3 seats" from Austin TX, hmm trsvax is that you?
I think that leaves about 10 outstanding. Some we've heard from, others I'm sure are working hard.
Rince, I received your card last night. Love the mushrooms! I always enjoy coming across the unexpected, and for me, mushrooms are one of those things you don't expect to see, but often can -- at least, that's what I've noticed in my somewhat new neck of the woods.
My cards are printed and about half are labelled and ready to go, just need a little more time to finish the rest. They should be in the mail today or tomorrow.

Again, I am way behind in my comments. I have received fine cards from 15 participants though:
afrank - “Sweet Child of Mine” - A beguiling glimpse of a young look at the world anikin - “Chihuly’s ‘Bridge of Glass’” - Beautiful, swirling hand printed colour - much appreciated BoxBrownie - “Floating Leaf” - Depending on the angle, it looks almost cosmic ChristopherCoy - “Music in the Street” - An excellent print and a nice viewpoint drpsilver - “Happiness is ... way of life” - A pithy phrase, and a beautiful print George Nova Scotia - “Tree” - Very atmospheric - makes me think of hobbits Jenni - “Annika” - A captivating portrait with an interesting choice of framing - subtly printed kraker - “What’s in a name?” - I do appreciate a card that makes me smile mjs - “Skin Tight” - An interesting “outlook”, and I like the print Mike Wilde - “Birds at the Blue Water Bridge”, “After a Dip” & “Time Lapse Testing” - Three more interesting cards from Mike. The timelapse shots are intriguing, the young swimmer is “caught” in an interesting pose but the light on the birds and the water and the quality of the paper and the printing makes “Birds at the Blue Water Bridge” my favourite Oxleyroad - “Old New Windmill” - A nice, cooler toned image ozphoto - “TV Tower, Berlin, Germany” - The colour made me think of Agfachrome, and it is piu58 - “Leibnitz” - A great juxtaposition - dark with light, human with artificial, old and new rst - “Soccer over Paris” - Made me smile; and photographer unknown - “Three Seats” - The photograph provides an interesting and evocative mystery, but it would be nice to know who the photographer is (my guess: trsvax ???)
I appreciate all the generous comments about my “Legs”. I hope I didn’t scare too many of you .
With cards from 15 in hand, I just have 9 to go.
Thanks all for participating!
