    I'm readily informed by my PA that cards galore are arriving at my address!
    Sorry to all - mine are being posted today, so you should receive shortly. I'll be able to comment later next month when I return from shooting in Bangkok and Asia; looking forward to all the gems being mentioned by everybody!!

    Off to a great start!
    The first postcard I received was frommooseontheloose:Rachelle and of course I LOVED it being an infrared fan myself and because the image was so great! Wow, your IR photo of Sacre Coeur was very well done. I don't always have people in my IR shots either so I understand what a novelty it is to have a gesture of a person in the shot. It certainly makes it interesting.
    Second postcard was a lovely shot of apple blossoms from lorirfrommontana taken from her backyard. Don't you love it when all you have to do is go outside to get a decent shot!
    Third postcard is a moody shot of a cemetary head stone from Christopher A Walrath and I really enjoy the fact that the postcard is bigger than the standard postcard. I do love wandering around in cemetaries. They are so peaceful... We have a beautiful one here in Victoria called Ross Bay Cemetary.
    And finally today I received PeteH's gorgeous pinhole shot of a grouping of clear water glasses. Simply wonderful, Pete! Love the tones and the composition. Wish I had taken it...am so jealous..
    Now I have to find an image to print. I still have two rolls of HIE to develop..maybe something might be worthy.

    Thank you to all who have sent their cards so far.

    I just wanted everyone to know that I will be late getting out my cards. I am leaving on Saturday for Ireland and I will not be back in the states until July 15. I hope to get at least one good image on the trip, however, to use in the exchange. I look forward to the pile of cards that will greet me on my return.

    Thanks,

    Allen

    Once you've done it once, you can re-use your work in subsequent exchanges.

    Hope this helps.

    You use Wordperfect!

    I've used it since version 4.1, and recommend it. I find it to be just as powerful as Word, and much more transparent in operation.

    It still has a strong following in the legal community.

    It also doesn't hurt that it has a Canadian owner

    Mick,

    I don't need any postcard stock myself at the moment (due to my lack of involvement at the moment and I still have several boxes) but I wonder if you'd have the market to organise something like this. I'd probably grab a few anyway! Not sure how internal postage to participants would affect the overall costings but that could be an issue also. There's a couple of group buys happening at my camera club for the very reason that postage kills individual orders.

    Postage from the US seems ridiculous. I recently participated in the 'largeformatphotograhy' exchange (you send your prints to a central location and that person sends back a batch of prints) and although what was sent to me was slightly larger and heavier than what I sent, mine cost $13 to send and after exchange conversion the other cost nearly $50. I've noticed it at other times as well.

    Cheers, Nige

    P.S. Good to see the enthusiasm of this exchange is still high, almost infectious! If I ever get organised I might have to rejoin the fray!

    Kate - thanks so much for your kind comments -- it really means a lot to me, since I admire your infrared work so much!

    According to my folks I've received quite a few postcards and my mom loves the moth from Mike C -- she thinks it would be even better in colour! I'll have to leave my comments for everyone for when I actually see the cards when I get back in September. These exchanges are so infectious! Hopefully I'll have something interesting from Japan to print in the next round.

    Today Mike Wilde's card arrived. There's a place just like that about half an hour from where I live, even down to the signs of the old logging business. It looks as if you waded out into the river to get the composition, Mike. Getting the history of the place is interesting too.

    cheers
    Pete

    Two more cards today -
    A colourful abandoned structure in Arizona from bkalafut,
    and an anonymous Kodak Darkroom at Disney World - interesting shot but sad comment on our times!

    cheers
    Pete
