Received a card from pegelli today - a lovely old farm building.

Posting this from my phone - just realized, after turning off my computers, that I once again forgot to scan in the cards I've received. Sorry, I'll get to it.

Good news, the third card came in today.

A 2:1 "big size" beautiful image of sunflowers from Marta (thamarie).

The card is nearly undamaged and the special Dyxum DPE stamp is a real bonus as well. I'll scan it when some more have arrived (or I need to bring out the scanner for another project)

Thanks Marta

Hey Matt ... I use Zenfolio too and my links seem to be working fine. Weird. BTW, I started using Zenfolio about 10 years ago on the recommendation of H2Oboy here at Dyxum. I think he switched to Canon.

Here's the SpaceX Falcon 9 contrail picture that I sent to Matt/alpha_in_exile. This is looking west high above Santa Monica Bay. The launch was from Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 120 miles northwest of here.

I sent 5 out of 6, someone forgot to send me their details and I reminded them this morning.

I also got these two beauties in the mail this week.
Thank you KoBra64 and MiPr.
@MiPr, can you explain how did you print the "dyxum postcards exchange 2018 logo" and Stamp?

From Fred_S, in yesterday's mail, a foggy morning "just around the corner", it has that hopeful just-before-dawn look ...

Another card on the doormat this morning .
A nice shallow DOF shot with wild flowers in the fields from New York. Something you wouldn't immediately expect from the big apple. I love these wild carrots.
It was made and sent by Ifreedman. Just a few scuff marks in middle of the bottom half.
Here is a quick shot made with my phone.

Many thanks Ian, and a good holiday season to you too!

Received #4 yesterday from maccroft, lovely shot of a castle from the air.

All my cards have now been mailed. I will be interested to see what condition they are in when they arrive.

So glad that my cards have started to arrive! I sent several cards to Europe, so hopefully more will be arriving soon.

I received my first card in the mail, this one from Maccroft. It's of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge on an overcast day, taken from the Newcastle Swing Bridge. Gateshead sort of looks like our St. Louis Arch in Missouri.

I like the lowkey look of the image, but the metallic bridge just pops. Unfortunately, a couple of big smudges on the image side, plus the usual barcoding.

I am a bit worried... 9 cards were sent a week ago, non reported received yet. I used a special mailbox (I believe you will see the postmark), and I verified that it is still active and the mail is collected from there but I don't trust the Israeli post services...
