Thanks for the link to "Friends of Bodie". I did not know that they sponsored "photography days".
I just got Wolfgang Moersch's walks with the dog today in the mail. What an awesome shot. It is so much fun to come home to find new postcards. This is very addictive!
Mine are finally printed (I re-did one lot). Just need to get some stamps this morning and hopefully they will go in the mail on Monday.
I know I only had a very small list, but its now been over 2 weeks since I have gotten one.....I'm feeling left out!!
Please. If anyone who has me on their list and has not received my card, PM me so I can resend. I would think everyone should have gotten them by now. I sent out on the 4th so it has been 22 days (19 postal days).
Let me know. Thanks.

Thoght it was about time I caught up with some feedback on the wonderful cards received since Pete H's first card - the quality is very high this round (lots of IR too - must have been spring!):
Wolfgang Moersch - A beautiful IR shot. The cloud seems to be a mirror of the tree. Well seen and well taken
Black Dog - A very poignant picture of his nephew. The atmosphere is superb as is the print
Darwin - A very topical shot! The remains of the bank at Bodie
Mooseontheloose - A stunning IR shot. The timing is spot on and it almost looks like a Photoshop montage it's so surreal and beautiful
Lorirfrommontana - A wonderfully quirky set of wooden signs to what appear to be individuals' houses!

Darwin's card arrived today. It looks like quite a long time since that bank had any gold, but the silver print is a gem. Now there's a mixed metaphor ...
Previously I have received, enjoyed and commented upon a card from one APUGer (mooseontheloose).
The most recent arrivals are from:
Black Dog -“Still Life (games)” - the print exudes warmth
Christopher Walrath - “Etched in Stone” - an eerie print of a haunting subject - it’s really interesting to compare the print with the scan in Christopher’s Gallery
drpsilver - “Portal Bodie” - a really interesting relic and a rich print to draw you in
lorirfrommontana - “signs” a nice print of an intriguing artifact that begs the question - “why???”
MattKing - hey - this looks familiar
Pete H - “glasses” - it always amazes me how creative the “pinhole” people are here, and Pete’s card is a great example
Wolfgang Moersch - “Walking the Dog and Holga” - an IR shot that glows, and a fantastic print in support
I look forward to the cards that are yet to come from:
(Allen Friday, bdial, Buster6X6, crispinuk, Fleath, Jon King, markrewald, Mick Fagan, Rob Skeoch, Roger Bulcock, rst, rtbadman, sly, syzygy_moi, Síle, Tim Gray, tocalosh)
Thanks to everyone for participating.
last week I received a very nice IR picture from Wolfgang, made with a Holga and also a real nice shot from Darwin (drpsilver).
Oh and thanks to both for the compliments I received on the photograph I send.
