Today I received BlackDog's awesome candle photograph. The wonderful postal service(s) barcoded the image side .. but for me that's just part of the "postcard" aesthetic, and luckily was on the side with more border. Plus now I have an untouched 67p stamp, hehe. Cheers.
I got Ruediger's "Into the light" today, beautiful lighting as the title suggests. Thanks! That's 3 so far (plus my own).
I got black dog's card which shows it's children (I belive they are it's). I enjoyed the photo very much. I remembered my own children which are adults now.
Thanks Uwe-they're my niece and nephew who I've been photographing since they were babies [if you got the square one, the look of intense concentration on my nephew's face is because he's fishing in a rockpool]. 5stringdeath-bad luck on the barcode but thanks for the appreciative comment:D!
I received 5stringdeath's "Summer, Saint Louis, MO" today. Nice capture of an interesting moment. It's amazing to see all these people looking at the same object at the same time.
I received Ruediger's card on Thursday - Into the Light. I love the mouse-eye view and the two handrails, like tentacles pulling me into the unknown. Thank you Ruediger.
I've now recieved a handful of cards - hanging off the edge of the continent here means I'm always a few days behind everyone else - even other Canadians.
A building detail from Wheelock - I think from Robert McCann. Nice tonal range.
"Into the Light" by Rudeiger. I like the low viewpoint.
Fishing by Johnny Walker - a photo that illustrates why BC is the best place to live.
Meltronic's pastoral scene with deer - very peaceful, and the perfectly posed deer is amazing.
"Footprint, Sand, Pebbles" by oxleyroad - The longer format works well with the contrast in texture between the 2 sides.
"Canal St" by Moopheus - graphic, good details chosen.
Dave Martiny's random plant - gotta love the lovely edges to those leaves.
Vlad's "Opium" - interesting selective focus.
My cards went in the mail yesterday. After reading all the differnt suggestions on how to optimize labels I decided it was less challenging to handwrite tham all. Previously I've made labels, but it's always driven me nuts to copy and paste and get things lined up right. Giving myself permission to take my time and address a dozen or so on those evenings when I'm sit in front of the TV, was much less stressful.
My fellow Canucks all got boring stamps on theirs (sorry) but everyone elsewhere got oddball combinations. I used up old stamps I found at the back of the drawer bolstered by small denominations as needed. Lots of licking! If you don't like the photo, you can always look at the pretty stamps.
Wow I'm amazed it made it to France so fast! Thanks for the comments :)

Thanks to everyone for sending, I'm working on getting darkroom time for my own cards.
5stringdeath: Interesting choice with the placement of the pole. Brings back good memories of going to the amusement park when I was younger.
Blackdog: Another nice summer shot, that brings back childhood memories. A family friend across town had a trampoline and I was always a real treat when we got to visit.
ccross: A cold wintery scene, in contrast to the two previous cards. I like it.
