@Greg: Pentax 645, Tri-X, developed in Sprint chemistry used by my school lab.
@Kate: yes, Waller TX is about an hour's drive or so outside of Houston. Spent the better part of this Labor Day with my partner and a friend shooting in the town and the surrounding countryside. Nice to get out of the city for a change.
@Pete: no toning, paper is the pearl Ilford postcard stock. I noticed the warm color myself, as it differed significantly from a previous printing on neutral tone Ilford 8x10. Developed in Sprint's QuickSilver developer.
I sent my cards out today, including one to Ms. Hellyar.

And the paper? That was the bittersweet part. I just about used up the last batch of Kodak paper I had - in this case Polymax RC III. Thus bringing to an end 40+ years of using almost exclusively (until just very recently) Kodak Black and White photographic paper.
I am a little sad, but not desolate. I have a fair amount of Ilford paper that I've purchased recently, Kentmere interests me, and I see some of the new Seagull around to. I just wish the change was due to a desire to experiment, rather than a necessity.
I hope everyone who receives one of my postcards enjoys them.
My cards have gone out today, also including ones to Ms Hellyar and Simon Galley. I like and use many Ilford products (film, chemistry and paper) but these days unfortunately few of Kodak's surviving products interest me. I wish it were otherwise ...
I didn't put the technical details on the card. If you are interested, I sent out 3 different shots all from the same roll of Acros, shot with a Contax G2 & 28mm f/2.8 Biogon, exposures around 1/1000 s at f/4. I suspect that it was developed in DD-X (wouldn't swear to that) and the prints were developed in Agfa Neutol WA.

I received Mark Fisher'spostcard today. Poor little piggy. Like you said all good pigs go to heaven. Great series, Mark. Enjoyed it very much.
I'm off to the darkroom tonight if I'm not too tired to print my postcards in one go.
Received Mick Fagan's well-executed high key portrait and Klinger's ring of standing stones.

my cards went on their way yesterday. The lady in the post office is no longer surprised if I show up every once in a while with a huge pile of postcards. I hope you will enjoy it.
So far I received around 13 cards and will comment on them as soon as I have a bit more time. All great cards.
Thanks and ciao
My parents have received 11 fantastic postcards. Both were fine photographers in their own day and were the ones that got me into this mess in the first place. They are loving the images and the cards and think this postcard exchange is wonderful.
OK, so ...
- Selective focus tree from George in Greece. I like the matte finish.
- Amusing army of crabs from Ian.
- Mark sent out an image of one of my fav animals - a pig. This is also the second image of a pig I've gotten this month in exchanges.
- Tim managed to catch a local kid wheeling about on a bike.
- I really like the image that Randall from TX sent.
- The flamingo Nicolas sent is very peculiar - where are the legs?!?
- I always like images that Greg sends. Lots of 'stuff' in the images.
- Peter, I'll be visiting soon and want to see more of Florida's sights.
- Yeah! A rare colour postcard from Klinger of the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney. Added bonus is that he's licked on some interesting $0.03 philately too.
- Arthur's (great name!) street candid of the local fishmongers in NYC Chinatown is also the stuff I like to shoot.
- My GAWD! Another colour postcard. And of the Toronto skyline too. Very nice mood.
Thanks everyone from me and my parents.
I would like to join this post card exchange i am based in australia, can someone help me?

Doug Smith's diptych works really well,
There is an anonymous swimming pool from Florida,

Kathy Whitmore's trees at night have lovely rich tones.
