I got two more cards this week, both on glossy Ilford postcard paper which seems to get more wear than the pearl finish. They are:
Lorifrommontana's snowy tree in her yard. With a yard like that you don't have to venture far.
And Mick Fagan's wheat silos. I love silos and elevators. And the Australian landscape looks so interesting compared to what I'm used to.
So I think that's 17 / 20 received. Thanks everyone.
I have received 20 of the 25 cards, right! are nice, funny, melancolic, suggestive, illustrative ... etc.

I like all I get! there is no postcarad that I dislike! I love these exchanges! thanks everyone!
I miscounted, I am still expecting 5 cards. This is my first exchange. At what point do we start asking people if they sent cards to see if they didn't make it. Do we do resends in that case?
I've been in 12 rounds so far, sending out on average about 45 cards per round. Personally, I've never kept track of missing cards, have never asked for missing cards, nor have I ever been asked to send a replacement card. I don't always print up enough extras for replacements anyway, so depending on how the numbers worked out, I might have to pass on sending a replacement.
I figure it's just the nature of the beast.
That's fine! Just wondered, being my first exchange. Thanks.
Enjoyed every one I've received so far and I suppose I should not worry about the ones not received. Here's hoping a few more show up though :)
I know some people *do* mail out replacements; you are certainly welcome to. It's just an unmanageable task for me to keep track of who didn't send cards. I always do the max each round so I'm getting 40-50 cards each time, sometimes there's overlap between rounds, and people don't always label which round their cards are for. I figure it's best for me if I don't freak out about any missing cards. Or even to acknowledge that any are missing ;)
I got a very nice card from Mick Fagan. Great image of silos, the geometry is amazing !
I'm more than willing resend cards to anyone who did not receive in from me, or received one that was badly mauled. I always print some extras just for this propose. Let me know.
Mick's card arrived last week - apologies for delay in commenting; been shooting hotels past two weeks.
Love the silos - reminds me of Waikerie in SA.
Nanette, yes a little bit like the Waikerie ones, although these are as usual on a rail line. Geographically speaking these are almost due east from Waikerie.
I'll be travelling through Waikerie on the SA October long weekend this year to see some friends, I'll have another look at them.
Another reminder of Waikerie is that it was hovering in the low 40's on New Years day this year, when I took that sheet. Hot under the cloth would be an understatement, but there was a boiling hot gentle zephyr blowing to keep sweat off, you know exactly what I mean.
