    No, I also get these marks. Sometimes they put it on a paper strip which they glue on the postcard. These are the lucky cases because one can remove that paper strip very easily without damaging the postcard. Never mind this is part of the postcard exchange - all our postcards are just treated as ... postcards

    I just finished writing comments about all the postcards received so far, the screen flickered and all was lost. Oh well, here's a shortened version. I've received cards from Warren Hinder (commented earlier), Tim Gray (the mystery of the pidgeons and bicycle), Lillian Sly (spooky, looks old and hand-painted), Jon King (why is that bull looking at me?), Mark Fisher (nicely seen and printed), Darwin Poulos (I'm a sucker for trees in the mist pics), Jake Williams (makes me wish I could still eat that kind of pudding) and Anke Drewitz (very nice subject and composition). I like them all, what a great round so far.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    The last batch of cards is hanging up to dry.
    Writers cramp coming up tomorrow ...

    I've received lots of great cards; in no particular order:

    Mike Wilde's very dramatic light trails.
    Pines in Fog from drpsilver - I like to shoot in fog too, but how do you keep the water out of the bellows?
    Warren Hinder's Eucalyptus: I sniffed the card, but it hasn't cleared up my cold
    Lillian Sly's Head Gardener - I like the composition.
    Anke Drewitz' Pear House at Dornberg Castle has a nice, old feel.
    The Scene of the Crime from Tim Gray - maybe the next shot will have a pigeon wearing a deerstalker and carrying a large magnifying glass?
    A wonderful diversion for the family from Jon King.
    jst's Flume: Lots of movement in the water & nicely printed. Great job!
    A pair of hot lips from Mark Fisher makes a good abstract.
    Jake Williams' Normandy bunker - nice creamy paper and beautifully printed.
    A photogram from Hal9000 - the tonality in the leaves is interesting. Why do they come out so patchy?
    JohnnyWalker's great shot of a beaver - I love the swirls in the water.
    Matt King's selenium & sepia toned wood by the Fraser River - did you tone Churchill on the stamp too?

    Pete:
    The toned Churchill is courtesy of Karsh's estate, and Canada Post
    Thanks for the comment.

    Kathy's one dark shirt arrived yesterday. I hope you've kept some shirts for yourself too, Kathy!

    Thank you Ruediger. These postcards are unique.

    Sending and receiving these postcards reminds me of how excited I used to get receiving mail from family and friends during my years in boarding school. I hope one day people will return to the magic of the written word on paper. Emails have made life so much easier, but we've lost so much in return.

    That is exactly what I think Nicole. In 1000 years from now, the internet generation in history will be called the dark ages II because they will almost know nothing about us.
