I don't think it matters, one thread or two regarding server space. I think the idea of keeping everything on one thread so the "life" of the project is all in one place is a good one. My thought of having two was just thinking that at this point we are on page 18 of this thread, so there is a long way to go before the images will show up for someone starting from the beginning. Perhaps this can be solved by an edit to the first post saying that the project was completed on 2/7/12, please click on page 19 to see the images.

I think what I will do is to both link to a high res version of my photo and attach a version here. A bit ungainly but I think that will serve both to keep the image here and to have a decent sized one for us to look at.

For those folks that may want to see a physical example of our postcards, well, they could have played along with the rest of us so I really don't see the need for a book.
And, frankly, I don't have the skills or time to put one together.
Personally, I will happily show my collection to any one in person--in fact I suspect my family will start to slowly edge out of the room if they see me with the note book I've got them in...

Certainly separate projects should have separate threads.

I hope to see this postcard idea happen again and hope to participate regardless of who organizes it! I will likely be happy to do another around the first of next year but if any one wants to put another together before then, please do so!

I'm still not sure which is a better way to go about the thread(s); whether it makes more sense to keep a single thread or to have two threads--this one and another one with the photos...

Rover, which do you think makes better use of server space here at RFF? Or does it matter?

Regards,
Rob
Rob,

I won't hurt to take a look at how I arrange the thread for this project.

You can dedicate the first post to become the road map, where to find the photos, where to find the discussions, etc. Rover's suggestion to provide links in the first post is an *excellent* one, wish I thought about that.

Keeping the project in one thread is to me crucial in keeping the momentum. Excitement and sometimes disappointment is best served chronologically. You lose that once you start another thread.

I stopped posting using my full real name, am sure those who want to can figure it out, but after doing a search for myself and finding stuff from the first days of the net, and my address and unlisted phone number, when I joined here, I simply did not use my full name.

It is not out of some paranoia, but there is enough information out there, and yes, I have some experience with ID theft, the local detective says he has a photo of the guy who stole his ID in front of the house in Florida he bought with it.

OTOH, if something happens to me, you guys can publish everything, it may be a hell of a yard sale and you may even know what some of the stuff in the back yard is. ;-)

The early postcard exchange ended up with names published in a searchable list for several reasons, first, we simply used our full names on that forum, and second, we simply sent the cards to the folks on the list, I do not think any of us had experienced any of the current electronic wrong doings at that time, and the list became public record after.

We all sent hand made prints then, many fiber base paper, etc.

I like the book idea, if someone wishes to edit such, books are easier to produce today and can be quite reasonable, someone could edit a decent book from the gallery with all the appropriate OK's.

I did not want to throw cold water on any of this, but it is what it is these days.

Regards, John

I'd be pleased to do a blurb book for anyone who didn't get into it early, and I know one person already in that category.

I'd probably charge $200 for the book, and only the fronts of the cards (or copies if not a book), and no addresses or names from the back of the cards, but stamp, postmark, and left hand text if no identity info is there.

But, the other folks probably want something here too (I would), so say if everyone wants $1 / book sold for their postcard image being in it, then the book price goes to $230 ish.

Is there a market for this?

Best thing to do IMHO is to participate. Costs less than you probably think. 4x6 prints work fine around the world and cost 13 cents each. postage is (was) .29 throughout the US, .80 cents Canada from the US, then $0.89 to 1.09 ish for RoW, so for 40 participants you can do it for less than $60-ish. Moo cards seem about the best at 80 cents or so each, so for next year I might go with them, or might try to find a lower priced alternative.

I realize my 4x6 Costco print is flimsier than a moo card, but I wonder if anyone cares if they are mounting it in an album? The Fuji paper and inks used are probably going to last 100 years longer than home made prints, and vendors like moo? who knows.

I would say, this is already very cheap. Living in Germany, I had only one other card sent into my country. Foreign countries cost .75€ (about 1 US-$), plus the cards.

But it really was worth it! Would'n do this every two weeks, though...

I am not happy for the photo that I used to be included in a BLURB book or indeed any book. That wasn't really in my mind as a possibilty when I joined the project. The photo is part of a collection that I am assembling for a not dissimilar project, and I want its publication to remain in my control.

So far in this postcard project I have cards from 28 different people, and the number has stuck there for nearly a week now - perhaps that's as good as it gets, and good it really is - thanks guys for the cards that have arrived.

Next time round, and I hope there is one and I want to be involved, we might perhaps wonder about a print within an envelope instead of the postcard. OK, there are good reasons for and against this, and perhaps this idea can be taken up towards the end of the thread when we ask - so what's next.

I think one is a dup. from Dan showing his first card stock without the backside imprinting - great slow-mo color matte photo!

2nd is nice b/w glossy barn, edges a bit weathered which really add to the photo. If I picked up the card, as it is, I'd probably guess the card and image were 50 years old. The USPS added just the right amt. of wear!

Jesse - no problem, I doubt I'll do the book. I think most of us would have to think about how we wanted to share these, and the print books weren't in the original idea, so I think just sharing and discussing here as Rob initially stated is a fine thing.

FWIW - if anyone who didn't participate in the project wants a nice large version of my "hallway" card, well, contact me offline and we'll talk

My card

Well the only card I got today was mine
I still have one left to send if one is lost in the mail to who ever didn't get one.

As for mine I sent it the day before with only the 29 cent postage,and got it back stamped return to sender with 3 cent postage dueJust a little extra fun for me.I was hoping that would be the case and the post office obliged.

I was a very late starter in this project and thanks to Rob and others for allowing me to participate.

I have tried and failed to "home print" some cards on Illford pre- printed postcard stock. For some reason, perhaps known to the more experienced, all the cards once printed later turned a light shade of pink.Believe me, what I don't know about photo printing could fill the world.

I am now waiting for some professionally printed cards which I understand might be a few days away. I will definitely address and send them the day they arrive.
Thank you all for your patience.

PS Last count i think I have received 26 cards

Dan - useful list of cards 'still to come' - matches mine although I've still to get Andrew's - guess it must be in the mail somewhere and I would expect it to arrive later than yours.
Great project - and yes, pushing out to Feb 14th before adding our photos to the thread seems a good idea to me too, but best not to leave it too long.

I haven't counted what I have lately...I would say somewhere around 32- give or take. I just received drewbarb's yesterday and it is a CRACKER. I'm sorry for superlatives here, but I think this is my favorite so far.

Regardless all this nonsense, my photo is in the mail today. I put them all in the slot around 2:30 PM EST. I hope you all enjoy it!

Please help me double check the missing ones. My count is 32 and I believe I'm waiting for the following postcards:

Brad, PA
James, UK
Slawomir, Poland
Ilia, CA
Uwe, Germany
Barry, NC

This makes a total of 38 + mine = 39 actual participants. I guess, I'm one ahead...

Please remind me - who sent two cards, one of a school event, all the Moms with cell phones? It inspired me to take this photo at my own kid's recital:



I'll look again, but I think that pair was missing a name.

Thanks!

Hi Randy

That was me - though you were the only one to get the @mum's with cameras' picture. I did 4 that everyone got one of and then one offs for the second card. I thought it might be interesting that way.

Glad you found it interesting - I like the look your getting from the middle mum

Your count is correct; we had one more person join in after the "official" closing date.
So, we are at 39 total for this project.

Rob, if I am not mistaken there was one person who had to drop out. I had listed 39 total including myself, so I was expecting to receive a total of 37 postcards. If I am missing a name, that would be a bonus since it may be one more in the mail!

Yes, Dan. One out (Jan from ON). But another one last minute in (Jim from AUS). You should also receive cards from 38 persons. Apperently, I received Jim's postcard already by 26 January. I see you still miss it!?

Got Brad's (from PA) and Barry's (from NC) one today too. 34 are in. Waiting on:

Make sure you go in the summer and STILL bring some warm clothes. Photo was taken the day after July 4th. Most interesting part about the ice is when it falls off the glaciers. It creates such a thundering noise. On the other hand, fireworks in Valdez (small town surrounded by mountains) cause the greatest drum rolling echoes in the mountains.

We all seem to still be waiting on the last few cards, 5 or 6 in my case, and that appears to be about where the rest of y'all are at.
So,
Time to share?
Knowing that I won't please everyone with this choice, I think YES.

This is what I sent:


And these are what I have received so far:





I have said I would attach a (small) version of my photo as well as link to it but, I can't attach it...the 114k version exceeded my upload limit by 12.96Mb according to the "manage attachments" screen!

The cards I've got are all in pretty decent shape. Some minor bent corners and several had the barcode sticker on the image side but has been my practice since I started seeing these on my mail, I peeled those off.
A few nicks and scratches also.
But, overall, these and the incoming cards will make a wonderful art collection.
I still haven't quite decided how to store them. I'm now thinking to get some 5 x 7 photo sleeves and a nice looseleaf binder. 2 to a page so I can easily look at/show off both sides.
5 x 7 I think because the cards are all slightly different sizes and 4 x 6 photo sleeves might not fit all of the cards.

Thank you all again for making this happen!
Sure, I posted the idea here but with out your enthusiasm and eagerness to play, it would have been nothing but a few immaterial lines of electrons.
As it has turned out, we each have a small but good collection of real prints from around the world. A physical connection, as it were, with a few of our fellow RFFers.
You folks rock!

Let's see what y'all got, folks!
Rob

What I expected really.
Yours was a great card of the Raquette Lake but I think the screen image I get has a translucency that the print didn't have.

I'm interested in just what some of the card images are, how the images were captured and any little stories connected. I do know that we haven't all got quite the same card collection, so I feel there is a lot more to come.
I'm off to assemble some notes on my card.
Thanks again Rob.
