I printed my postcards today, and they are drying below . The post office is next.
I've recieved 13 cards so far
I just got kwhitmore's card in the mail today - a great night shot
Klinger - I like how the color sets off the stones and the sky.
blackdog - a great image and amazing location.
I've been to Foamhenge , but it just isn't the same as Klinger's and Black Dog's
Nicholas Lindan - Wonderful texture in the bird, and the lack of legs makes it easy to see it in an abstract way
stan160 - I like the missing one, as well as those rare shadows!
Mick Fagan - great portrait, my house guests never pose
fm2n- a great city shot, and 4x5 street photography, love it!
Allen Friday - I like the composition and the glowing crucible
gr82bart - nice image that works well with Cyanotype
Peter Schrager - symmetry and reflections
Mark Fisher - works as a single image, looking forward to a series
Pepmiro - nice composition - wonderful toning - blue, but different look than most cyanotypes
Doug Smith - Great idea for a diptych, nicely done.
Received 5 more cards today.
Mark Fisher I sure hope this pig went to haven.It is so cute. The picture tells a story.
Peter Schrager Very moody late afternoon shot. Well done.
KWhitmore Interesting hand held night shot of a stairs. Very slight up movement of the camera give it a interesting texture. I like it.
rwyoung An eerie,ghostly shrunken head . Yikes, I better use film only
Peter Klinger A very surreal color photograph of "Ring of Brodgar" Thanks Peter the post office made a mess of the front . A lot of swirly things in the middle. And as Art said I like the 3c stamps nice touch.
Keep them coming, thanks to all that made comments on my contribution to this post card exchange.
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.

FM2N Chinatown fish market.Difficult to capture but a lot of fun. I love markets. Well done Arthur.
"Bronze Casting" from Allan Friday Beautifully executed image. Great shot Allan.
No surprise here. Another beautiful portrait from Mick Fagan. Pose, expression, angle and high key work well together. I love it mate.

Ok, so far to date I've received six awesome postcards.
A gorgeous cyanotype from Art-I love it, wonderful curves.
The Evergreen Barn from drpsilver is really nice-makes me miss living in the country.
Doug Smith's diptych of the bridge for WTC day is cool and moody.
Todd's gas can from Buster6X6 is great...you made all that junk look beautiful and somehow organized?
From Mark Fisher was "all good pigs go...." Well, this vegetarian hopes he went to heaven....and not bacon ;P Nice tones, great subject. I hope to see more of the series.
Finally Dang Dog from Eric. This one made me laugh out loud I'll admit. A great portrait in my opinion.
This has been a great first round for me....thanks!
Thanks for the comments of the county fair cards. I have enough images to keep it going for another few years. This winter, I want to get all the images I have thusfar printed as a group....hopefully this group could be the basis for a show. I think I've sent out 3 or 4 so far from the series. I'll try to get them all posted in one place sometime this winter.
