Post Card

About 10 days ago I had my first competition, possibly just a one off - we shall see!

What was the bug I asked and I had three quick replies and then two people responded with their addresses Mark of Sainte Maxime DP and Lisi from Hong Kong DP.

I have waited until today to post their winning Postcards as this is my 100th post on Réal DP. The photograph was taken by my wife Ghislaine as I posted the cards today at the post box that hangs on the wall of the church in Réal just up the road from us. So they are now on their way.

The camera never lies but I believe that in this case it has. It looks as if I a little over weight – it’s not true I tell you. I will have to teach my wife about camera angles.

Congrats on 100 days and 100 photos! You look great!

Dawn said...

I would like to congratulate you on 100!! Hope you bring us hundreds more!! As I said previously you really bring your part of the world alive to us, especially with your shots of people.
I completely agree on the weight issue as you will see on my post of today!!

Lisi said...

are they the same postcards? if not, do I get the more beautiful one? do I get a more beautiful stamp than Mark's......you know those are really important to me, LOL

Wilf, I thought about mentioning that in one of Luca's photos but don't want to be rude......I think you look younger in the photos you posted than your profile photo, well, you look like a grand dad in your profile photo, but you certainly don't look like one in this photo ;-)

thank you for the postcard and HAPPY 100TH POST, I LOOK FORWARD FOR MORE!

Thanks Wilf,I'm looking forward to the card. I think I'll run the funny caption competition again this week:)

Nice. Good humour.. nothing better than making fun of ourselves, I do it all the time. Your wife did well !

Kate said...

Great photo! I agree; your posts are better than the profile pic. You look happy and younger here.

Wilf James said...

Okay, so I look old in my profile pic. I am going to have to do something about that!! No one was rude I always take those kind of comments in good humour, after all I’m a happy granddad.

Yes Lisi (sorry Mark) you get the most beautiful postcard and two lovely stamps, even though they were put in the post box yesterday the postman has only just gone past (13.00hr) so they are now on their way.

Wilf James said...

You look good. But what I noticed right away is that you're exuding a lot of gentleness.

Wilf James said...

Thank you Luggi.

And Judy when you are next in Europe make sure you send yourself a postcard - (just joking with a good friend.) And maybe I should run another competition!
