First of all, hope it's appropriate to start a thread here; somebody kill or move it if not . But, as I mentioned somewhere up there in the signup thread, it's about 10 years since I last participated, so naturally I'm overthinking things (and maybe a little overexcited). But, I thought there might be the seeds of an interesting discussion in there - in particular, what sort of subjects do we choose for our postcards? What I mean is, I guess by their nature postcards suggest a certain type of subject - landscapes, images that remind you of place, maybe even abstract images, but not - say - portraits. My favourite of my own photos are always portraits, because they speak to me personally about the person involved, but to send a portrait out as a postcard seems weird because who else is going to want to stick a photo of some random person they never met on the fridge. So, I'm curious - what do you folks do? Does the nature of it being a postcard influence your subject, or do you think of it more as a gallery that happens to use very small frames with a stamp on the back? And what do you hope to receive - little pieces of places you've never been and never may be (I love the international nature of the exercise), small pieces of art to keep forever, or just random insights into what some other guy thinks is a nice photo? Incidentally, I should say - I'm not asking for advice; this is not just so someone will say "sure, send a portrait, it's fine"; I've almost made up my mind about that (although I have 3 more days of long weekend and maybe the inspiration for something else that didn't arrive yesterday will pop up in the meantime). I just thought it might make an interesting talking point .
