    Yesterday I found the card Low winter sunshine form Black dog. Apples and oranges - a fine seasonal sujet. At least here in Germany apples and oranges are part of the christmas decoration.

    Mark:

    I would think the NSA was smart enough to see that a postcard does not need the be "opened" in order to read it contents.

    After long last I have found some time to comment on the collection of cards that have come to me. In no particular order except the ordering of the pile in front of me.

    The card from kraker reminds me of the 2 months I spent in France. Wonderful markets, good food, and a very nice photo.
    The card from Black Dog arrived in my mail box in better shape than the one that George received. This photo has a story to tell. I like how you kept detail in the shadows.
    Megzdad81 sent a print of a waterfall in TN. You accomplished your goal nicely. One of my favorites this round.
    A cool color image from anikin of a market in Taiwan.
    I like how the photo from pilami plays with the viewer. All the pieces are there, you fill in the person. Another favorite from this round.
    The card from Kc2edh has a story to tell about a way of life, and asks a lot of questions. I like these kind of images, those that engage the viewer.
    The photo from MattKing is filled with detail. I ask how do I get in to photograph.
    The print from BoxBrownie show haw much fun these guys having. We all should be as happy.
    A beautiful brown/sepia print from JimO. I wish that the Congress would listen to your two subjects - Washington and Jefferson
    The card from Steelbar is nicely composed, and reminiscent of time past. Looks like a nice little community.
    The holiday card from George Nova Scotia was a welcome surprise. Until 2012 I used a similar technique to make 8x10m calendars. Sadly no one make masks like this anymore.
    A nice stop action photo from mesantacruz. I like how the pier leads the viewer to the column of water.
    I wonder why the angel is so angry in the photo from TXFZ1?
    Detail and beauty. The card from rince has both. The use of soft focus around the edge of the subject almost makes it glow.

    Thank you all for your comments, and for the great images I received.

    Regards,
    Darwin

    Sorry to hear that George- would you like a replacement card? [sadly no more of that one left] Only 3 more to send so I'll get them posted tomorrow.

    Thanks Black Dog for the offer, but no need for a replacement. That's all part of the fun. I did like the parts I did receive, well done.

    There are a couple rumors why she is angry, the one I like the most is he died before changing his will and the exwife was still mad. The angel is holding the sword in an aggressive stabbing manner, usually swords are pointing up towards the heavens. Another angry feature is the angel is frowning with fierce eyes. Angels of the period usually have either expressionless or just the slightest of smiles.

    Here is a link to the real story of his death in the local free press.

    Still more new arrivals, a couple of which arrived just today!

    "Splash at OB Pier" from mesantacruz. Definitely pressed the shutter button at the "decisive moment"! I like the straight-as-a-ruler, seemingly tiny pier in the distance, behind the spray that's not at all delicate!

    "Snowman" from George What a great holiday card! The snowman looks like he's had too much eggnog...

    "Bald River Falls" from megzdad81 I'm glad that you persevered, Bob! A very rich print, and a very dramatic one.

    "Beauty" from rince A dandy beauty, thanks! That the center is tack-sharp while the fuzzy periphery is a touch out of focus is a wonderful touch!

    "Food Market in Houlgate, France" from kraker. That mail delivery time here closely corresponds to dinner time is funny when postcards of food related subjects arrive! It looks much like a farm market here, or probably anywhere: a timeless human ritual which probably has been quietly occurring for millennia. Also makes me hungry...

    And two which arrived today!

    "Low Winter Sunshine" from Black Dog. I was holding an orange in my hand as I picked this out of the mail. Are these lemons? It was rather fun, looking this one over whilst savoring a juicy orange. By the way, my postcard now may have a slight odor of orange... Doesn't seem to hurt it in the least!

    "The Open Door" from Mardan. It ought to be "mardan the magnificent" judging from this postcard. I am in fact the sort of old fart photographer who is drawn to photographs depicting the effect of entropy on structures and artifacts and this one draws me as a moth to a flame. The story it tells...

    This has been a great round and I can't wait for the next one!

    Mike
    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!”
