    My print is off to a much warmer and sunnier place. I wish I could come with it...

    whoa... couldn't blown me over with a feather!

    went to the post box today and wondered what's this round tube? hmm, quick glance couldn't find a return address, so put it aside and headed home.

    opened it up and found a beautiful print - "cliff palace of mesa verde" from Anikin. Wonderful! i'm a second-time recipient from eugene. i was more than plesantly surprised, momentarily confused, then a big smile came about, amazed at my good fortune. thank you, eugene, i still have your first print on the wall! you have given me great pleasure.

    now i have to get in the darkroom, i have some very big shoes to fill.

    i love this - thanks for your efforts harry.

    I don't have lists from all the old rounds so you may get repeats. In fact this round was completely random.

    To say the truth JimO, I simply cannot recall sending two prints to you. Are you sure the one on the wall was from me? Can you describe what's on the print? There is a lot of praise here, and I'm worried I don't deserve all of it ;-)

    I've been WAY too busy to print this month. I'm getting married Saturday (Mar 31) and then leaving on my honeymoon. I hope to have time to print for several exchanges I'm committed to starting in April. :smile:

    Sorry for being absent, not being a great coordinator again. Busy with work and life so I hope everyone else has been busier printing than I have been.

    Picked out a neg from a recent trip and got it printed over the weekend. It is currently sitting under a pile of weights and will be in the post within a day or two.

    Received your beautiful print of the Italian window and wonderful note about using the 4x5 Wista amongst all the digi snappers. :smile:

    Thank you!

    Received Katie's print yesterday, a nicely toned warm matte portrait. It never occurred to me before to partially bleach followed by selenium. I'll have to experiment with that!

    Thanks Katie!

    I expect some time in the darkroom this weekend so hopefully I can have a print out soon.
