My last cards arrived today, from Pako. As with others I was surprised to see an envelope with a greeting card and bonus postcard (or was it the other way round) on a familiar theme:



The vintage Chevy in an Arizona museum


A bit of vintage NY streetscape, here the pedestrian part of the Williamsburg bridge

Thanks, Pako!

Art, yes, I lived in Boston for 7.5 years and moved back to Israel almost 6 years ago. I have great memories from the time in the US and I will definitely come back for Sabbatical.

Maccroft's card arrived today. Thanks! It is of some stone dragon heads on the grounds of Wallington Hall in Northumberland. I'll scan and post when I have a spare moment.

Typical scuffs and bar coding, but generally in great shape.

This card took about 3 weeks to get here. So, westbound travel is slower than eastbound? The cards I sent to the UK arrived in about a week. The jet stream impacts postcards too!

Shay, thanks for posting that! Yes, Utah. My brother and I did a bike tour through southern Utah, northern Arizona. Your shot reminded me of that trip from long ago. Did you ever live here in the US?

BTW, Pako's shot of the beautiful Chevy is from Arizona when he was on his way to the Grand Canyon.

Thank you Art for reporting my card. It is 3 out of 7.

Here is the photo in your card:

This was exactly my thought when we moved here and I started to get to know this area. The landscape always reminds us (wife and me) our trip to Utah...

@alpha_in_exile ... I love the "reverse angle" flower shot! I will have to creatively imitate that technique the next time I stumble upon flowers.

I received cards from Shay (rovhazman) and Pako yesterday. I'll scan and post later.

Shay's is of the hidden lake near Timna, a former copper mine. Minor scuffing on the card, but unfortunately right near the middle of the image. This looks a lot like the American Southwest.

I received the same two cards from Pako that Fred_S received. Mint condition of course as they were sent together in an envelope. Beautiful images and excellent presentation. @Pako, who prints these for you?

Today my last two cards (from 10!) arrived
In fact , I have even 11 cards, since Pako sent two of them!
I was a bit surprised to see an envelope with the known USA stamp, but it contained a high quality folded carton card with a beautiful Chevy.
Obviously the cards were in excellent condition thanks to the cover.



Pako's bonus card is from Lincoln Centre in NYC



Thanks for these cards Pako!

The last one is from alpha-in-excile, who was inspired by my Oktoberfest flowershots
A lovely soft bokeh flower shot 'from behind'
It arrived in good shape, with one corner slightly bent, and a hardly noticeable orange barcode at the right side.


Many thanks Matt and apologies for the reflections at the left side..



Happy with my 100% receipt score!!
Just one card sent to be confirmed from adhox.
Hope he is okay, since he hasn't been online here for over a month.
