I've received an updated address for ozphoto. If you've already sent her a card that's okay, if not please check for a PM in the next day or so, depending on your time zone
First of all: Darwin, sorry for your loss. Times have been tough for you and yours, take it easy with the postcards, that should be the least of your worries.
Now, so far I have received three cards:
Mark_S, detail of a Victorian house. Nicely framed, lots of different details to observe. Very nice.
TXFZ1, Cathedral Spires, that's some nature you have captured, there's none of that in my flat country. Love the detail of seeing the water flowing. The great outdoors. Lovely.
Pelo78, SF Twilight at the beach, beautiful how the playing kids turn into ghosts due to the slower shutter speed. That really makes the picture. One would almost forget to look at the background, which would be a shame. Very nice.
Off to a very nice start, I would say.
I have been out and about with the camera, shot two rolls of 6x9 (I'm more used to 6x6 and 6x4,5; with 6x9 rolls fill up pretty fast!), and developed the first of those. First roll of film developed in my new house, hooray! I hope I can select one or two shots after developing the second roll, and then... I hope my cyanotype chemistry is not too shaken and stirred from moving house. In other words: it will be a few weeks before I can send my cards.

Matt and Jacco, thank you for your warm thoughts. It is wonderful feeling to know that I have friends in other parts of the world. It means a lot.
To date I have only received 3 cards:
The cards from Mark_S of architectural details in a San Francisco house is very nice. Very sharp (thank you Hasselblad) and has good tonal range.
TXFZ1 captured a small piece of a wonderful place to photograph: Yosemite National Park. There is so much to see, and it is never the same visit-to-visit. Certainly one of the "photographer's paradise".
TimVermont's photo from a historic village is very nice. Sharp and good tonal range. I like how the clouds just above the roof line interact with the tree branches, and how these branches are mirrored in the shadow branches. The Fujinon 210mm is my favorite lens with 4x5.
My cards were mailed this morning. The negative I selected is old and a little dirty, so please excuse the dust.

Reason: correct spelling
As have I. But I like them a lot! Unfortunately, work and illness has kept me out of the darkroom as of late, but this weekend or next might work out well for me. I hope to get my cards done before the end of the month, as I'll be travelling quite extensively over August and September (northern Japan and Borneo/Java respectively).
