Yesterday I got three interesting cards:
Peace fountain from jimo: I never saw a copper toned photgraph before, very interesting experience.
Cascade 4098 from Ryan : Interesting story behind the image!
A flower from Sebastian Krauss: I wondered how stiff the Adox paper ist. Incredible. Nice image too.
Thank you all.
glad you like it. It's dry mounted on a blank postcard, which surely helps.

So far for Round 31 I have received lovely cards from:
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!”
— Hunter S. Thompson
Saw your question about "...the story behind the shoes on the wall." from a week or so ago but I didn't know the story until yesterday. We were playing "tourist" with old friends who used to live here in NM and are here from their current home in Missouri. They'd not been to the Santuario so we went and I asked the priest who was there about the story. The photo was taken in the Santo Nino chapel. Santo Nino is said to wander the night looking for the poor and sick who he can help. He often wears out his shoes during these travels so people leave children's shoes, he is a child after all, for him to have. Much like at the Santuario itself, I expect people leave shoes to ask for intercession or as thanks for answered prayers.
Indeed, it is looking from inside at the window surrounded by the shoes. It was a tough one for me to print without blowing out the highlights, as you say, had to compromise a bit. I guess it worked out ok.
NM is a great place to be a tourist, even after living here almost 30 years.
