Thoughts ?

I'll get in touch with them if people are willing to send them cards.


I'd enjoy sending them cards if they're interested. Just send me their address, please.

If anyone else wants a card, please send me your address. I'm about to order cards, so I can't add addresses after I place my order.

Thank you Greg its a good picture, I like the lit and silhouette'd subjects.

Only some minor damage also

Awesome! I'm glad a postcard has landed somewhere. We're off to a great start.

How far did gregja's card travel, days in transit? I want to get a sense of travel time ... sort of like a network ping test.

My 8 cards are in transfer now - I mean - they were put in the mailbox this morning :) I hope they will come soon, although some of them have quite a long distance to travel - in order of addresses on my list this makes

1) 176 hours by foot,
2) 196 hours by foot,
3) 758 hours by foot + about 100 days of kayaking across Atlantic ,
4) 2907 hours by foot,
5) 69 hours,
6) 679 hours by foot + about 100 days of kayaking across Atlantic,
7) 232 hours by foot
8) 610 hours by foot + about 100 days of kayaking across Atlantic,

That would be it for now

BTW, I still have 2 spare cards ready to be sent: one lake and one fort

Thanks Mark, I'm glad you like it (and that it got there fairly unscathed).

Wayyyyy faster than I would expect. I posted them all on Tuesday the 18th, so around 4 days from Sydney, Australia to the UK...not bad

Well, I have my cards ready and they go out tomorrow from the post office.

Adub128. I got your wonderful card in the mail yesterday (Saturday). So your state-side card has landed.

I got my first card today, also from gregja. Lovely shot from a walk in the woods.   It arrived in great shape (with the addition of a postal sorting sticker at the bottom). Thanks!

I have chosen and ordered mine so just waiting for them to come in before posting. Should be soon hopefully.

Hi Shauna,

Happy to hear another one made it through! With luck the postal sorting sticker added to the overall composition :)

Cheers, Greg

Just FYI - all my cards are 'booked' - no more spares - you will have to wait until next year to get one :)

I'm starting to feel to pressure. I am yet to even take any shots.
Looks like it is time to extract digit and get motivated.

Nice!

I thought I was in last place.

I hope to select images and send them off to the printer tonight... but my evenings rarely go as I plan them.

Hello all...

Just back home from vacation and found my first postcard.
It's from gregja! Thank you so much, very appreciated. :)
If you plan to come to Ravenna I'll be glad to help you.

My postcards are almost ready to go and I think in the next two/three days they should be sent to their destination :)

I received my first card from MiPr this morning. A nice triptych style card with pictures from an old German bunker in the woods of Gierloz (Poland). Very nicely done and the postal service treated the card quite well allthough you can still see some marks left by the sorting machine.
Thanks Mirek!

All my cards are ready to send out, I'll drop them off at the post office this afternoon.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here
