I'm up to four. Nice images all of them. One even came in an envelope! I won't spoil it for everyone, but it was a stunning portrait (so to speak).

Six have arrived in my letterbox in Wellington, New Zealand so far, lovely images. Thanks to Bill, Stephan, Rolfe, Kent, Jeff and Richard. I posted mine last week (spot the postcard project novice: I wrote mine by hand, bad idea! I hope my writing is legible). My family and I are very much enjoying receiving superb postcards from exotic locations!
Regards,
Hugh

I've received two so far, Stephen and Red Rock Bill. Looking forward to more coming in the mail, luckily they haven't been coming lately, they'd probably be wet. We had close to 100mm of rain yesterday!
I missed the postman delivering my box of cards from Moo, I'll go and get them tomorrow. Unfortunately I won't get around to sending them for a few weeks, got a bit of travel and a lot of work, and I need to hand address them all

I have received 5 glorious postcards since last week! But it seems that Cyprus Post is not as quick as others, I do hope that they have left this island!

Dropped mine off at the Post Office this morning guys.

The Postcards I've received so far are great! Truly excellent images, I can hardly wait for the rest of them to come.

Thank you all.

I finally sent out my postcards on Friday and I already received 9 beautiful cards so far.

I realized that some of you have written a few words about their photograph and I think that's a good idea. So, I'm just going to put the story behind my picture right here:

My picture was taken in the Imperial Garden in Tokyo just before Christmas last year. I saw a man sitting on a bench and I saw the park warden (at least that's what I assume he was) on a bicycle arriving from a distance, so I was lining up the shot where the warden would be at the end of a path that would lead the viewers eyes from the guy on the bench to him. Unfortunately the warden saw me raise the camera and (probably out of politeness) stopped immediately to stay out of my frame. So I pretended to take a picture and lowered my camera only to raise it again just before he got to the point where I needed him to be to take the picture that I wanted. It was taken on an EOS 6D with a 28mm.

I've been getting one or two a day for the last week or so. Nice images so far!

Mine went out this morning, so hopefully they start arriving at nearby (East Coast US) locations before the end of the week.

I just came back from a two week work trip, so it's been very nice to go through a bunch of postcards. Thanks to everyone participating!

I've received a bunch of cards now. Thanks! I always enjoy seeing the wide range of photographic style, subject choice, etc.

I wish the postal service would refrain from damaging *every* card they deliver. Not usually too bad, but its distracting.

Perhaps oddly, I have the opposite reaction. As long as the damage isn't catastrophic, I really enjoy the marks that come along with being mailed. The scuffs, the barcodes that get printed on some, the bumped corners, even the occasional crease or tear. For me, those are all traces of the mailing process -- a tangible history of the path the image took to get to me. Utterly unique even from other versions of the same image / card. So I tend to enjoy those imperfections as an integral part of the postcard charm.

I've received a dozen or so and everyone in my office (me included) can't wait for the next one each time one arrives. Great images from everybody! Mine went out middle-end of last week, so should start popping into mail boxes soon. Fun project! I'm already on board for next time.

Well said! These things are touched by human hands. That's what makes them more personal than e-mail, etc.

First, the cards and images are great.

But, I don't like the USPS machines scuffing every card.

We can start a movement! Hashtag #USPSStopDamagingPostcards here and on social media!

More seriously, I decided two times ago to start using envelopes.

Finally got my cards in the mail today. I'm sorry that a crush of work prevented me from wet-printing my cards like I did last year. I love this phase of the project, though, when pretty much every day brings at least one card!

Ready to mail out: I have ready 22 cards for the USA, and 11 envelopes (with cards).
Is 33 the right number?

Wet-printed are an extra-special treat! You are more than forgiven!

Thank you all for being part of this round! It was fun and it was easy to organize - much less work, than I thought initially.

The cards, as far as they arrived, yet, and I could see them, are great as ever. The fun thing is, I did this all while being on a long trip through Japan, so I will only see all of them, when I'm back home. I just received scans so far, but getting them physically in my hands will give me another round of joy.

I think, this was true for all past rounds. I very rarely take/create pictures in BW, but I appreciate what others can do with it.

In the mail today, finally. Sorry to be so late. Appreciate all I have received so far. My 7 year old loves to see all the photos and the stamps and know where they all come from.

Moo was fast this time around, and quality was quite good.

Thanks to all participants! It's great fun.
