I had the same experience as Ruediger when I received "Tools" from Buster6x6. Greg, you have achieved a distinctive style of photographs.
I also received Ruediger's (rst) card. I like the composition integrating what I call "the kid's view of the world", a view that is closer to the ground than 6 feet. Looking at the corner of the stairwell gives a 3D feeling to the photo. Well done.
Thanks for the cards, and a taste of your view of the world.
Well, so far it has been nothing but black and white pix taken with Hasselblads and printed on Ilford postcard paper! Strange...
Worked on mine last night. Should have them off soon.

I received Sly's "Snow Drops" on Friday. Very nice Lillian, it's a lovely photo. Also Warren's erotic "Roof Top". Took me a while to figure it out as well, but nicely done!
If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

I'm just back from a 2 week holiday, most of it spent in the beautiful country of Cymru. Found quite some postcards in the stack of mail, I'll comment on them within a few days, but at first glance they were all terrific. Higher standards each round...
Haven't sent my cards yet; actually, I hadn't decided on a negative yet, as I was hoping that some nice new pictures might turn up between the holiday shots of Wales. So, I'll first develop these rolls of film and then decide on what to send. Could take a couple of more weeks, though, so don't hold your breath, please.

Out of 14 cards I received so far only four are done with a Hasselblad, that is obviously more Blads than e.g. Voigtländers but a convention?

This is going to sound like I'm copying Kraker's message, but...
I've just got back from spending most of June in Australia and the job of sorting through the massive pile of junk mail and bills was made more than bearable by the fair size pile of postcards already delivered. I'm going to try and get as much as I can of the mono film from Oz processed by the weekend. Postcards mean holidays to me so if I can find a decent image from this Oz trip I'll use it, otherwise it'll be the back up image I selected before i went away.
Oooh, that reminds me, that Velvia won't mail itself to the lab, and i'd better order in another box of postcard paper...
I've been gone for about a week and look forward to getting the pile of postcards.
