    PRINT AUCTION FOR APUG.ORG


    I am pleased to announce that Les McLean is offering one of his beautiful black and white photographs for sale as a donation to APUG. This will be an auction with the reserve set at $200US. We do not have an auction system so it will need to be somewhat informal. If you wish to bid please message me by clicking here to send the bid. I will then update this thread with the highest bid. The auction will wrap up on Sept 3rd with a final bid call, then sale:

    The winner has a choice of one of the two prints as follows:​

    Roughting Linn

    Print size 8 1/2" x 9 1/4" printed on Ilford Warmtone semi matt fibre paper
    and selenium toned. Signed on the front in pencil.​

    Sunrise Namibia

    Print size 12 7/16" x 8 1/2" printed on Ilford Warmtone semi matt paper
    and selenium toned. Signed on the front in pencil.​

    Both prints will be corner mounted on to 16" x 20 white museum board.
    Payment and shipping arrangements will be made via e-mail.​

    Happy Bidding, and THANK YOU Les for this fantastic gesture!​

    Hi,

    A member asked if the auction was closed because the thread is locked. The thread is locked so that bid updates are the only replies in the thread, otherwise people will need to weed through comments to find the bid updates. It's still going :smile:

    Thanks
