Sorry, but my cards will be out, but late this round. Vacations, family obligations and work conspired against me. I should be able to get it done in the next couple of weeks, though.
I received 4 postcards today!! What a treat and a delight.
Ingo: Your version of the Mannheim memorial really compliments Ruediger's.
Buster 6X6: Love your image of the Corsair airplane's bent wing.
Valerie: Gorgeous image of "Magic Rocks". Well done.
PepMiro: Wow you have some amazing landscapes where you live in Andorra.Very painterly rendition. I enjoyed it very much.
I've been working on mine this week and should be able to get them out by the weekend. About 10 great cards received thus far. I'll post specifics in a few days.
Thanks Kate and Matt for your kind comments.
Four more cards came today.
Peter Schrager's "Flashdance" somewhere in Florida, some tourist visit places like that
Peter Warwick "Burst water" on Edinbrough street, a successful night shot which I can't say for some of mine . Well done.
Tim Gray Interesting framing of an derelict Casino.
erikg "Big Bottles" of Labatt and Molson beer bottles, very nice shot especially like the lens contrast and black frame around the image.
So far great images, thanks,
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
So, just an update, in the meantime 6 more cards arrived. Thanks to Peter for the image from Edinburgh, Brians Krakow market square, Diannas square card of a boy (is it your son?), Eriks very funny Big Bottles, shot in Hamburg, well, Hamburg NY it is, and Peters Flashdance.
That was only five cards? Ohhh yes, and then I had a very special card, with personal delivery (who needs a post office?) in a small Cafe in Tübingen. Thanks to Mick for Pocket Rocket. Mick visited Germany, so Ingo and I decided to meet with him and we had a great day in Tübingen, saw lots of very nice images Mick brought to Germany, hung around, talked a lot and obviously did some photographing in that nice city. That was a real pleasure. So Mick, I hope you had a good trip back to Australia. Thanks again for staying with us. And did I mention that it was a pleasure to meet with you?

I finally got round to posting all of my cards out last night, however the UK post office currnetly has a number of strikes until mid august, so there may be a delay until they arive.
Rst and Ingo,
That must have been great to meet Mick. I'll bet he had some good stories to tell.
Received MattKing's: postcard of a derelict fishing boat in a river I'm so familiar with. Always a pleasure Matt! I love the colour of the print too. It's not sepia or is it?

Glad you like it.
My postcard just went out today. All 52 of them. They should arrive in the next week or two.
Hello all, just returned a few hours ago from an eventful trip to Germany. My mother in-law turned 90 last Sunday and my wife and I went to celebrate with the rest of her family.
The highlight of the trip was a meet with Rüdiger and Ingo in Tübingen. Both of them took a day off work to take me out for the whole day in Tübingen, is that dedication or what? They even came and picked me up and dropped me back home.
We had a session in the cafe talking photography in general and specifically over their cameras that they had with them, as well some prints I brought along for discussion.
We then ambled around the town and I have to say that I learnt more about Leica M6 and Voigtländer rangefinder cameras, than any excursion to a camera shop or fair would accomplish. I will seriously look at the Voigtländer R4M as a possible camera in the future.
Rüdiger and I exchanged cards personally, which is something I don't think will happen again too soon.
Kate, and I think someone else, remarked about, "Pocket Rocket" on my picture of Jessie. Well Jessie is a little dynamo, as well as being a perfect description of good things coming in small sizes.
Out of a quick backyard shoot between the two travelling lasses from Germany, this frame of Jessie stood out to me as quite good. To Jessie herself, she picked it immediately from the contact sheet. Her words were, "this is how I see myself!" Kate, her travelling companion, agreed. The mounted and matted 12x16" print is really quite something, especially as it is manipulated slightly to add an edge the postcard doesn't have.
I had a quick look at the pile of postcards and will comment on them later, I'm off to bed after 32 hours of non-stop travel!
