Thanks everyone for their comments in Round 28, I'm sure there are a few more to come.
If you haven't sent your cards for Round 28 it's time to enter panic mode and get them out, please don't let the other folks down.
Just to update everyone:
I am extremely sorry for the HUGE delay. I have had the cards printed for some time now. Not to get into unnecessary details, my wife and I had our first child in December, things came up (nothing bad) recently that put a larger than normal financial burden on us. I wanted to conserve every bit of money just to be careful. I feel awful that I had to wait this long. The cards will go out first thing in the morning. Hopefully this doesn't discredit me as a forum member, but if it does, it should surely give me credit as a father and husband. ahah. We made it through fine. Our daughter is beautiful. I'll be uploading a few photos I took of her soon. Good day to everyone. I think I'll sit this next round out. I'd like to have a superb negative before joining again.
i just recieved 2 prints from bavendt, nice, thanks

Oh well! I printed mine so that I could have sent in week one of the exchange and then, somehow there was never the right time to write and address them until yesterday. And now they are in the mail. Sorry to everyone for taking so long and really, I do not even have an excuse - like a newborn child which in my opinion is the best excuse you can ever have. So congratulations Cody.
I think I do not deserve getting the great postcards I received so far. Thanks to everyone.
Do or do not. There's no try. (Yoda)

I feel you! I have a 10 month old and its still a challenge to get into the darkroom. Hell, its a challenge to get the lawn mowed, much less do things I actually WANT to do!

Man with His Horse also arrived in BKK today.
As Uwe said, great tones for both the man and his horse.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

At saturday I recieved a very fine card from Rüdiger, detail of the Louvre. Pars pro toto!
