I've processed through all the mail on my desk and found that there were three more postcards received, enclosed in envelopes. My total count now is 27..

It's been a hectic day ... I should soon have the time to look at them!

No worries -- I'll confess that I actually like getting one or two cards very late like this. It draws out the suspense and joy in an unpredictable, but pleasurable way. So, "thanks!" from me for supplying one of the things I enjoy most about the RFF projects.

Your card arrived today... I thought we were done so it was definitely a surprise. Neat shot.

Several days ago the last straggler card to arrive here in western Oregon was an orange bear. It was indeed a pleasant surprise because I thought no more cards were going to arrive. I think the bear came down from Edmonton. Cool.

I was away for 2 weeks and when I got back there was this nice Halloween card from FDarnell. Thank you very much, Paul!
That makes 26 cards for me. Hopefully the others, apart from jweber3rd's, have not got lost in the mail.

Hello,

it's been a long time without any cards. But today I found John Weber Crab also, when I came home. What a pleasant surprise. Thank you!

Hello all,

thank you for participating to all of you. I received some very pictures this round and I'm very happy with the results.

Rick reminded me, that one of the best things to this is, when the round is more or less over, everyone posts his/her picture here and writes a few words to it. Well, I think, the time has come...

Sorry Rick, that I didn't made it the other day as promised... But here it comes. This was my picture and I hope, all of you received it:



It was shot this summer in Japan at the beach of Kamakura while we waited for the summer fireworks to start. The beach was crowded to the last place, so this picture does really show the opposite of the situation. Tele-lens perspective compression did the trick... It was shot with the Olympus Pen-F and the incredible 75mm/f1.8 lens.

When the fireworks started about an hour later, there was no place left to sit at the beach. The fireworks were started from a platform in the water about 300m from the beach and after about 10 minutes (the show lasted for about 2 hours) heavy clouds came to the beach and nothing could be seen of the show anymore, except for some distant colorful cloud-lighting...

Nevertheless, people were in good mood and applauded every visible sparkle and had their picknick at the beach until it was over. I loved it. During that trip, we saw quite a few very big fireworks in different places (Yokohama, Sumida/Tokyo, Kamakura and a few others), all were just perfect except for this one, which was totally ruined by the weather. However, people were so polite, mood was great. It's the one, that I remember with the most fond memories. The japanese people... that's it, why I love to be there.

Krotenblender, that's a great backstory, and I enjoyed your photo a lot. I've been to Japan a number of times, but never at the height of summer, so I have missed the big firework shows.

I don't have my photo uploaded on flickr (or any other image hosting site) so I can't link to it here. I explained a little of the backstory on the back of the postcard, so I'll not re-tell that again.

Some may have noticed the whitish blur in the middle of the photo. I don't want to do a complete demolition job on the overall romanticism of the image, but that was actually a plastic bag of leftover food (doggie bag!) from a Chinese restaurant that the woman was trying to hand to my wife -- the four of us had gone out to eat together. Mundane reality. But I've always loved the image with the strangely sharp foliage in the background and the blurred figures on left and right.

Not much of a back story for mine. I have been using a DJI Phantom 3 4K as a flying camera platform, watching regularly for the right weather and sky for photos of our lake. This one from late fall 2017, pretty much straight out of the camera with only minor adjustments.

This is Eastman Lake in Grantham NH. That's Grantham Mountain and Croyden Peak in the distance. Eastman is a planned community. There are homes all along the lake shore, but community policies keep the shoreline looking great. That's one of our five beaches in the foreground. #EastmanNH I have used these postcards to help promote the community.

Greatly enjoyed this postcard round! Thanks to all who participated!

Whew. Took me more than a month to look at and enjoy all these excellent postcards! Terrific work, everyone. I received 28 cards in total (so far ... ) and they're all delightful.

I like the notion of preparing a backstory post for the thread. I'll have to think about that and post it later. But thank you all for the photographs: A diverse collection of works.

Oh yes: And the suggestion of a Moleskine Memo Pockets (Large) to keep them all together was just right for me. I've put "RFF Postcard #10 - 2018" on the spine and it fits perfectly in my shelf full of photo treasures.

Back story

I was waiting in my car when a few skateboarders showed up next door to practice their moves on a loading dock and surrounding structures. By prefocusing and anticipating the shutter lag I managed to get a few usable shots.

Canon PowerShot SX160 IS, 1/320 s, f/5.6, ISO 100, taken Nov 2, 2014 in Winnipeg, MB Canada. Image cropped, desaturated, and bit depth reduced to emphasize the silhouette.

Delighted to say I received yet another postcard, this one the Chicago photo from reggie. Very lovely!

I'm up to 29 now, there's just one still out there from my list, presuming it wasn't lost in the mail somehow.

Well well.... I had a surprise in the mailbox today as I received a fine B&W card with a pretty nifty shot taken in Chicago. Thanks Reggie!

Is that it? I've now received 28 cards.

I've received 26 of the possible 30, here on the west coast, USA. I suspect postcards are easily lost in the mail. Or possibly caused by my aggresive junk mail recycling habits... :-P

Well it looks like someone in my post office really likes your cards.
Last round and this rounds card have failed to show here.
I have 27 including mine.

Bummer!

Last week I received Reggie's beautiful night time picture of Chicago, thank you very much!
That makes 28 cards out of a possible 29, I believe. I hope the last card is just late and not lost.
It's been a fun project.

My simple photo was taken at the local fairgrounds while watching the pig races. It's always fun wandering around county and state fairs with a camera. It's quite the photo-rich environment.

My apologies for 1) being MIA lately and 2) getting my cards out so late. If for some reason you did not recieve yours, let me know, I have extras. And thank you for the kind words.

Stephan - Count me among those who have received your card.

As for the backstory, it's on the card. the tldr version, my wife was at a conference in Chicago and I tagged along, because I could, and why not? She had some conference-y things to do, so I had some time to myself one evening. Found myself on Michigan Avenue, where it becomes the DuSable Bridge and the rest is a photograph.

Hi, this bear is painted a colour known as international distress orange. It's emerging onto the street from a concrete slab on the front lawn of a commercial art gallery.

I think it's great to have bears on city lawns, especially orange ones.

Sorry for the error in posting, and for the missing picture. I'll try to post it in the Galery, where I usually have better luck.

18 received here in London, one thing that struck me is how often they are damaged in transit which is a bit sad. Hopefully all of mine made it since they were in envelopes that would take the worst of the beating going through the sorting machines.

Personal favourite at this point, “Beach Crab” by jweber3rd. I am usually not a macro fan, but something about the colours, the depth of field, it speaks strongly to me on some level.

Received from:

1. ABrosig
2. Big Ursus
3. COLSEBASTIANMORAN
4. Don Parsons
5. FDarnell
6. Papercut

13. kxl
14. largedrink
15. mothertrucker

Looking forward to #11 and pondering on what to send.

Man, that is a very bad quote. There are way too many lost this time. You should talk to your postman, if he maybe liked the postcards too much...

Thank you for your kind words on "Ghostbuster's Ride". I just saw this today. I recently moved and all the cards from RFF Postcard #10 are in storage. I hope we have another one soon.

Thanks so much!. I like to showcase the Post Office's artwork on stamps as well. There have been some good ones over the years. The only one I took issue with was the Jackson Pollack commemorative where they retouched out his cigarette!
