    After a few quiet days, 3 more cards arrived today

    Nate's beaten up old car wheel and other lumber. It's amazing how photogenic junk can be!
    Wayne has sent a lighthouse at Portland: how greatto be able to go for a walk from your house and get a view like that.
    Ross has made a beautiful night shot of Prague in colour. Good composition and the dominant bronze colour is wonderful.

    Thanks all!

    It's not only my printing that's slow this round, it's also my commenting on received cards. These two great cards have been on my desk for about a week now:

    Allen Friday: Grain Elevator, absolutely wonderful. Reminds me of the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher. If only we had buildings like that over here, I would be photographing them all the time.
    Pete H: Strong image, strong lines, and very interesting toning.

    Thanks!

    (And in case you didn't guess: mine are not printed yet... )

    Latest cards to show up are: Allen Friday's grain elevator - nice tones and composition, and I like the "old" in front of the "new"; Jon King's cigarettes - well done, the first thing my wife wanted to do when she saw it was brush the ashes; Warren Hinder's overpass - reminds me of a science fiction time tunnel, great; and Tim Gray's doublet of the angry girl - the two pictures go very well together.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    Mine got into the mail today. My daughter also has printed her postcards, but she has to label and write them. So I think she will put her cards into the mail next week.

    And in the meantime I got two more postcards. One from rossawilson1. Indeed an atmospheric one and one of the rare color postcards. And I got the card from Simplicius, The Road Ahead, a funny card, at least it made me smile.

    Cheers

    Today I also received The Road Ahead, from Simplicius. It's very well composed - were you sitting down?

    cheers

    Peter Markowski's card came today. I like the way the tracks in the mud curve behind the overhanging trees.

    Hi Rüdiger. Your card arrived today. I like the idea of using a pinhole camera to express the mists of time. It looks very bleak now. Whenever I visit a castle I think of how it might have been, with people and animals and tapestries: life and colour. I bet those places smelled pretty bad too, with animals running about and no modern plumbing!

    There is a challenge for everybody: make a picture which evokes a smell in the mind of the viewer.

    cheers
    Pete

    My cards went by the post this morning on their way round the globe.

    The last week I have resaved postcards from
    Roger Bulrock, his lovely photo from the pine forest. Lovely tones and details in the photo.
    Shannon Friday: I’m amazed of the postcard travelling all the way from New Zealand. Seems as the whether are changing rapidly? The sun bracing true the threatening dark clouds and quiet weather.
    Warren Hinder send me a postcard with a strong geometric composition.

    Thanks to all off you.
    This is my first exchange round. I will certainly participate in the next round. 

    Best regards
    OMU

    Two cards arrived today.

    I agree. Nicely done, and well printed. Must be a real problem not having snow, and the resulting water. In California we are very close to water rationing because of low snow fall for three years straight.

    The other card came from bpaties. I like how this image draws the viewer into this gate. I would be tempted to wander around until told to leave. Boyd, I am glad you liked my card, and that it arrived int the "land down under" safely. Welcome to the exchange!

    Regards,
    Darwin
