Rec'd card from alpha-in-exile (4 days from Pittsburgh in the U.S. to Tallahassee in the U.S.). Almost in perfect shape, two very minor bends at the corners.

I have received all but one that I am due and all but one that I sent has been acknowledged as received. This has been a very enjoyable exchange.

A very nice card received from Mirek over the weekend. It's great to get a proper printed B&W photo and the images are superb.
It took just over a month to get from the other side of the planet (Poland) to New Zealand and the card is in near perfect condition.
Thanks Mirek

First, apologies that I haven't announced these card arrivals earlier, but already over week ago I received a card from Matt (alpha_in_exile):



And the backside is good condition too:



Then a week later, last Wednesday I got another card, this time from Anand (nandbytes):



Also this card arrived in almost pristine condition and apart from a slightly smudgy postmark the other side looked fine too:



And if I have kept the count right, this means I have now received all the cards, I was expecting to get.

I have just received a striking, greyscale geometric abstract card from Alpha_in_exile. Good condition with a rub mark in the middle of the image and a little wear at the corners and edges. This makes four with a fifth eagerly anticipated.

In the meantime I have received all 5 cards, the ones from KoBra64, Idleidolidyll and bms44974 were already reported and over the past two weeks I have also received the cards from nandbytes and alpha_in_exile.

Thanks for all your cards and scans are below. They all arrived more or less unharmed except the one from bms44974 in which the ink was smudged by water/raindrops when is was delivered in our mailbox.

Here they are in order of appearance:

KoBra64



Idleidolidyll



bms44974



nandbytes



alpha_in_exile



Thanks again Peter, Mike, Brian, anand and Matt, it's always a pleasure to have a printed view of the world through your eyes, that's what makes this postcard exchange such a pleasant experience.

Of the cards I have sent 4 have been reported arrived of which 2 were scanned and posted here. The 5th is still MIA, but I hope it will arrive shortly (or has arrived and only needs to be reported)

I'll wait posting the originals until after they have all arrived and scanned/posted here.

Good to see both my Gringotts bank pictures have reached and on posted on the same page too
Looks like my plan of sending them to EU based folks so they'd arrive around the same time worked out

Pieter's picture is of the bank fully intact and Heikki's of the same blown up the dragon.

Also interesting Heikki's postcard has the stamp validated by the post office but not Pieters

If you have't guessed already my other cards are also Harry Potter related (hopefully they'll arrive just as nicely)

Received a card from MacCroft. Thanxs.

Card isn't harmed, just 2 corners with some small bends, nearly visible.





Harm, with A7iii+A7Rii plus 6-400mm glass.
