    Dear photographers,

    If I got a message from the addressee i show the images here.

    Hi, I'm going to have to report a delay in fulfilling my assignment. Cycling home last night from work I hit a greasy patch on a roundabout, went flying and have fractured my elbow. Hopefully up and running again in 3-4 weeks so will get straight on with my print then.

    Thank you both, uncomfortable, painful and bruised but very glad and probably lucky that it was no worse.

    I just put my print in the mail to a sunny destination. It should arrive there by the end of the week. I'll post the image in the gallery later and a link to it in this thread.

    ....and from the sunny locale mentioned by menno - i rec'd a fine print from his summer trip to the city of zagreb!

    a formal doorway... it's actually more than a doorway in that it is indeed solid and old as you would imagine - ornate decorations and accouterments - intriguing. adding mystery is a chain and padlock around the iron doors warranting further thought! (you can see a less romantic version of the doorway on google maps https://www.google.com/maps/place/M...8ed04f3848006fa!8m2!3d45.8142814!4d15.9707562 )

    mine is excellently printed on adox variotone (and is without the garbage can, shown in google). the light is just dipping below the buildings across the street adding a wide ranges of tones in the print. the contrast was excellent tamed in the darkroom rendering a nice composition, well done.

    thank you menno!

    Thanks for your nice comments jvo. I've uploaded the "more romantic version" here to the standard gallery so others can see it as well.

    I also received a print in the mail yesterday. All the way from Bogota, Colombia from Peter Rockstroh01. A very nice 8x10 contact print of "Monstera, leaves, first rain" on Ilford Galerie paper. It looks stunning; super smooth tones, deep blacks and obviously zero grain. Thanks Peter!

    Knowing where it was taken, this photo brings back memories of the cycling trip my wife and I did in 2000 through Guatemala & Belize. I went through your APUG gallery and saw some familiar places in Guatemala; Antigua, Lake Atitlan, Semuc Champey, Tikal. Great photos!

    doesn't do the print justice! (when my scanner died years ago i never replaced it, so am unable to scan... seeing the difference between the scanned image and the print, seems my omission is justified!!!:sick:)

    thank you again, menno, for a fine print.

    I didn´t know you had been in Guatemala ! It is a beautifull country. I am glad your print arrived in good shape. I´ve had some problems in the past with some courier companies.
    Last year they asked me to send a suggestion because they damaged some buckets so badly during trassport, that I just wrote: ¨Please land the plane before delivery.¨
