Well, today was the last day of the semester (Japanese university system) and I was rewarded with two postcards in the mail today:

Valerie's Houston Art Car Parade is an interesting subject, although I'm not sure about the fingerprint above it (?) ;-)

Also, hwv's Eiffel Tower also arrived -- love the angle, the crop, the contrast, the light. A great take on a tourist icon and my favorite of the round so far. Thanks!
