Hey just received a card from donminbox, it is a store bought card rather than a film based postcard. Very disappointing. From the message on the card I believe we have a Christian spammer in this exchange. I PM'ed donminbox earlier today regarding the card but have not received a response.
Great start to the round. Got Rachelle's IR postcard. As usual, a real treat to see. I love your IR work.

You keeners are making me feel like a slackard. I won't be home from Guyana until Sunday, and leaving on the next Sunday (21st) for Vietnam. I think (hope) I have a great postcard waiting in my camera, if so I'll develop and print that before I leave, the photo gods willing. If not It will have to find another one in my vast storehouse of almost-great pictures. If it has to wait until mid-March I think that's still in the allowed time, and won't be flagellated with a wet noodle for being late?
If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

I also received a store bought card from donmimbox with a similar sounding message that rtbadman mentioned. I was equally disappointed.
On the other hand, The card from mooseontheloose is a beautiful IR photo. I really love the ethereal nature of this print. Very well done. At first look I thought it might be a photo from a memorial on the Stanford University campus. I guess there are thousands of this style memorial around the world.
P.S. I hope to get into the darkroom to print next week. I have a neg selected, just need time to print.

I received Gurkenprinz postcard of the two nuns day before yesterday. Nice.
A little request/tip: Please write which round the postcard is in, it makes it easier to follow .
Alright, Birger, thanks for the tip! It is my first such exchange, after all...
Also, I am glad you like my card :-)
Greetings from Vienna,
Just got Rachelle's IR postcard. Beautiful work. I love the light, the spirit and a lot of details on this building. As an icing on the top, it gave me the chance to feel between my fingers, a totally new paper for me. The card is in front of me at the office for the day, (all my co-workers are looking at it). Tonight I will put it on my newly prepared "Postcard Exchange Wall of Celebrities". Best Regards.
- Note to self: Next time processing a film, take notice of the shape of the beer bottle and the shape of the fixer bottle, and note the differences. -
