    • Dianna's Polaroid of an 'older model' Pontiac
    • rkmiec sent a cool image of a face from a poster

    Regards, Art.

    Hi Dianna,

    It is a cool camera. It's also BIG. You can get it and film closer though in Canada. I got mine as a Christmas present but I know stores in Toronto like Aden Camera sell it and the film too.

    The card says that the post office returns to sender any mail that doesn't meet the standards. Interesting...
    I have a feeling it depends on the individual person processing your cards. Like anywhere else, some people follow the 'rules' more than others. So far, it seems all the instant prints are getting through - size non-compliance and all! Fingers crossed ...

    Dianna, the one I received from you had the same zinger from the PO. Contrary to their own policy, it was delivered anyway.

    Well, the PO returns ones that have a return address. If the postage is sufficient, they'll tape it to a card and send it on (that's how I received Dianne's). I agree that it probably depends on the specific office and person who sees it. If one jams a machine, it probably won't continue on.

    Thanks Diana - that one is mine (making the bold assumption that I was the only one photograhing lilly pads). I realized after I send them that I did not put anything on them to identify whom they are from. Seems like a good thing now, at least they didn't come back to me.

    i got Alex and Banana's prints today. Both very nice. About as far apart subject-wise as you can get, but that's cool - Alex sent me some wildflowers, and Banana sent me guys painting graffiti.

    HAH! Ain't very much graffiti writing in this county, but copious amounts of wildflowers abound. Banana's print sounds highly interesting.

    If we do this again, I just might use this old Big Shot that's been laying around collecting dust. It focuses only at 4 feet. Good for close-ups and nothing else, and uses the 66X series pack films.

    I got Alex's yesterday. Or I should say my wife got it. She showed it to me, told me it was lovely, and promptly walked away with it. I might think it's nice, too, but it's hard to tell from such limited contact.
