These postcard exchanges are drawing in the whole family now. At the start back in round 20 I would get you've got another photo in the mail. Now the post cards are moved from the mail pile and make to the family room where I am asked what is this new picture about. And extended family ask to see the latest cards when ever they drop by. Looks like I will be able to miss an exchange for a while. Thanks to everyone who participates because at my end many people are getting enjoyment from the exchanges.
My third picture came yesterday. Meltronic - after reading about this picture from others glad I received one of the "pastoral" scene. The image draws you in and the white textured boarder caps it off brilliantly. The postcard arrived flat as a tack and as posted so I am curious as to the weight of the paper? It seams so flimsy yet survived how many automated mail facilities on the journey from TX to Melbourne Victoria? Thanks for your comments on my card too.
last week I received Footprint, Sand and Pebbles by Oxleyroad, which I enjoy looking at very much. A calm, beautifully toned and well balanced shot printed to an unusual size.. Love it! My girlfriend too, she said something like "this looks like the pictures you can buy at IKEA", which - coming from a girl with a rather pragmatical approach as to what makes a good photo - is quite a compliment!
Dave Martiny's plant. Very abstract shot, with very nice tones, I like it a lot. Thanks also to remind us that every subject can be a good subject, epending on your desperation level (wonder how much Weston was depressed to photograph peppers )
RST's Frauenkirche. More an more I like pinhole shots, and this one is no exception !
JohnnyWalker's picture of Chris fishing. Very nice landscape, reminds me of my fishing days (I still have a rod, just in case the bug hits again !)

Laurent- he wrote in his daybook 'disaster-Brett ate two of them'. Luckily one survived!
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
Mailed one batch this morning and finished addressing the rest tonight, into the mail tomorrow. Still only have one here so far, Canada post is slow it seems so I hope mine don't take too long to get out there.
