I also received Jim's excellent image, and creative layout being printed in the middle of a longer sized card. Also Ilia's great image of the streets of SF with bldg. reflections in b/w. Both are very rangerfinder-esque images.

I got one from San Francisco today, but don't know who sent it, because the name is below a barcode... With this one, I received 35 cards so far. Maybe the missing ones are lost, but the yield was very good for this project. Some really impressive pictures.

Any more cards arrived since nightstar's post?
I expected to get the last few, but haven't. Still, a pretty good ratio for me.
It has me thinking about another round...
I am at work this morning as I'm posting this but will start another thread later today I think.

Rob, excellent - another round will be good.

I've just bought a 5 by 7 view camera so may try to do a contact print for the project. The contact I had in the last round was just exquisite.

I keep getting emails from Moo.com, and have been thinking of printing another card to send to friends.

I am up for round 2.

Excellent idea.
Could we tweak it a bit so that instead of a postcard we do a 'Print in an Envelope' and restrict the size of the print or envelope.
Costs might have put off some people and with price of postage forever increasing, price has to be a factor. First Class letter post here in GB has just gone up by 30%.
I'm up for it!

I just ordered some stickers from moo... I also vote for a second postcard project, though I probably won't be able to get things out until the end of June.

I also have to respectfully disagree with Jesse, and say that we keep it as a postcard–postal abuse is a big part of the fun.

I'm in. Either way, if postcard or print. Since the main cost from germany are the stamps, it makes not much difference for me. Visually I would prefer postcards.

Hi Rob, I'd be up for round 2. I'm thinking about using Moo this time after seeing the quality. I also like the postcard theme, most arrive pretty well considering the distance, and also postcard rates are a bit lower than envelopes. Plus, the mail people get to see the photos too. Share the love!

Jesse, in the UK is the cost to send a letter less than that to send a postcard? In the US the cost to send a postcard is less. If so, then a 4x6 print in an envelope is in effect the same(ish) as a post card, and if more economic for some participants I think that is a good option.

At the last project, the cost of a letter and postcard in the UK was the same, but sending overseas the letter cost more - I found out to my cost

Likewise, sending a letter or postcard overseas from the US is more expensive than sending one domestically.

Here's a 10% off Moo code: http://www.moo.com/share/8gkfw8

However, if you use the above, I also get some discount on a future order, so use a discount code from a moo customer who you'd like to benefit.

Last time round the GB costing of sending letter or postcard was the same - or at least that was what I was charged. However although postage is a big cost factor so is the cost of a commercially produced postcard as against a print.
As a indication, did anyone work out what it cost them to send 38/39 Moo produced postcards - was it less than $100?

If I am remembering correctly it cost me in the $90 range first time around for Moo cards and postage, given that US postage rates are less expensive it seems than those oversees.

I could be ready for a second round, if the dead line is not too early. Post card printed by Moo with normal shipment (due to cost saving) took a few weeks. And I would like to shoot a "special" photo for next round, if any!

My cards were ~USD 40 (ifolor.ch) + postage, most of it overseas. I think it was ~USD 50. So I was still under USD 100.

Just 'found' this thread and I'am still a bit puzzled I didn't came along its earlier postings. Quite interesting and exciting project this must have been for all its participants, and considering most members received about 32 postcards (with 38 people paticipating) the efforts were certaintly quite rewarding! I can image though that some fellow members didn't want to participate because of the costs involved.
For me however that would be no barrier to participate if a similar project would be organized again, I would certainly like to join a postcard project!

CRY, Basel



CV 50/2.5 with Konica Hexar RF on Fujicolor C200 @1/60s f/8.0

I'm late and we already started round two! But I finished my blog of this project at last showing off all the postcards I got, including link back to the explaining posts of the authors, where available. To some extent this should give some of our feeling during this beautyful project.

This mural art in Basel, Klybeck quarter, was one of my candidates for the postcards and made it finally to the print.

I just added some statistical information at the end of my blog, regarding this 1st postcard project. You will find a table of the used camera models, the used film types (or sensor sizes), as well as the most used print procedure for our hobby.

aaah. dct... only NOW i realized why i wrote that you hope i also like the card from the previous round
Your round 2 card arrived some time ago...from Germany. When i got the "Cry" card, i remembered there was no other card posted from Switzerland, but i did not remember that there was one from you via Germany, LOL

Yes, i like both of them, thanks - though they are VERY different -

On my photo of the arches, I used a Sony Nex 5 with Canon 28/2.8 lens.

Sorry to lower the Leica % ratio

Please check again what the camera body was, because in this post you are telling of a Bessa-R...
You are already in the Voigtlander count.

That's right. I'm near the German border and the postage for international postcards is 40 % lower in Germany than in Switzerland: Guess in which postoffice I sat 30 minutes putting stamps on the cards

I apologize. You are correct, I did use a Bessa R with Canon 28/2.8 lens for that shot. Thanks for checking!
