    I think that since I shoot Ilford primarily, and print on Ilford paper.. I will send one to Ilford too.

    I should be posting cards on Wednesday, though they will actually be envelopes since about half of mine are International.

    I'm going to get busy with mine also. I have some new negatives to print and some of them look pretty good. Looking forward to this new round.

    Printed them yesterday, posted them today, so they should go out tomorrow. I'm not sure how people do 60+ and still have the will to live.

    Oh, and don't be too offended if there's a bad joke on the back of yours. :wink:

    I got 5 printed tonight, along with my school work. If someone wants to tape their postcard to an enlarger and send it to me, I would be most appreciative.

    I printed half of mine today... feels very good, and also very effective in terms of learning curve and darkroom process !!!

    The first card of the round arrived today, Bwakel's Nordic waterfall.
    A fantastic sense of scale, I get vertigo just looking at it.

    Got them all printed, I expect to address and send them by the end of the week-end. It's been a great opportunity to question my process, learn about consistency in processing (I started to use a timer for development so that I can have them all developped the same).

    Postcards Away! They may be a bit slow though, Monday is a postal holiday in the US.

    The party has started.
    Got my first postcard yesterday. From Bwakel.
    He has visited Norway and sends a photo from Vettisfossen. By using a 15 mm he has captured the valley and the scenery around the waterfall. Beautiful.

    On Friday I printed my postcard. Now they are addressed and ready to go by the postman tomorrow.

    A quick message to all on my list - just got back from a shoot and realised I've given incorrect address details.
    Have sent a PM to Ruediger who I'm sure will pass on the correction very soon.
    To those who may have already posted - don't worry, it will get here, just might take a little longer than we'd like. :smile:

    Looking forward to them filling my mailbox!!

    While sending out the address change I found that user "Dr. Louie" is no longer a member on APUG.

    Just to let you know.

    Cheers
