Well, we have just defined a new genre of photography, a sub-genre of street photography -- organic photography! -- semi-random observations from around our cities, towns and villages. First uttered here at Dyxum. Over the years, I have discovered that you can find beauty if you just look around.

Nice work with your shots, waldo!

Thanks for posting your shots, @waldo_posth ... a beautiful set of urban landscape/architectural images. Did you have this theme in mind or did it happen organically?

I need to post my originals soon, but I have been under the weather a little bit for the past few days but recovering nicely. I'll try to get to it this weekend.

Happy New Year, all!! And to all of the DPE 2023 participants, thanks for playing!! We'll spin something up again in about 8-9 months

There is no dificulty in spotting the theme of the cards I sent!

All the post boxes are close to home - Eddington (for Art) is a small village pretty much attached to the small town of Hungerford in West Berkshire.

1. 1859 post box, Easton. Sent to Roger Rex


2. 1861-1870 post box, Hungerford. Sent to MartyMoose


3. 1871-1880 post box, Avington. Sent to KoBra64


4. 1881 post box, Boxford. Sent to Mestari


5. 1882-1901 post box, Eddington. Sent to ADub128

Actually, that theme wasn't on purpose. You mention it, I hadn't thought about it.

Thanks!

Thanks, Harm! I love all of the detail in your images. Besides that grass, the plant life around southern California doesn't look like this. I always say this, but it's so cool to see the world through the eyes of other Dyxum photographers!

I need to post my set of images that I sent along ... my set didn't have a theme like Harm's set of shots.

No, it arrived some time before it made it to the scanner. Sorry to take so long.

No problem Phil, I was just curious

Final card of five received. Came from Maccroft, arriving yesterday from the UK. Still awaiting confirmation that two I sent of the five have been received. Card received in virtually pristine condition.

Had one card from Waldo_posth arrive last Monday in good condition bar a few scuffs on the image.
Then Monday this week card from Xolunanoke arrived again in good condition with a few scuffs on the image.

So my tally so far is 7 sent and 5 reported as arriving. Then all 5 sent to myself have arrived. I'll try and get these scanned in the next week or so.
