    Hi all,

    I am looking forward to this new round and I hope that everybody will have fun.

    Chris -- it's easily found if one knows where to look... ;-)

    Just a little FYI for everyone in the exchange. My address is correct at the moment, but I'm warning you know that I will be moving to Japan in late March. I will let people know my new address once I have it (for the cards I will not have received at that time); however, my parents will continue to collect cards at this address for me.

    Looking forward to this new round!

    OK, the address corrections have been sent out.

    If you do not have Katherine or Tim on your list, just forget about the corrections.

    Let's go!

    Yeah! Finally... After being quite excited for the last few months, all my cards are going in the mail today! I feel like a little kid.. maybe I am.

    Cheers, gurkenprinz

    I get to go into the darkroom today! My enlarger lamps should arrive by noon. I have to go dress shopping with Mary (she is an opera singer and has a recital). But by this evening I will be free to print!!! I will probably just get my image picked out for the exchange but I should be able to get some printed! I just love this exchange! So much fun to see where all the wonderful prints come from. Thanks to all who participate!

    I setup everything yesterday, with the idea to spend my today's evening in the darkroom. But this morning I woke up pretty sick (I knew that tasting my new Bromophen brew was a bad idea :D ).

    WoooHooo! I got all my postcards printed! I'll get them out next week on payday (Friday). I just exposed them all, putting them in the paper safe (how did I live without that for a year!) then did them 4 at a time. It took 3 hours!

    Lori I do something similar. I have an empty box for postcard paper. I expose 10-12 at a time and put the exposed ones in the box. Once a batch is exposed, I then run them through the chemicals. As long as I don't flip on the white light during the process, everything seems to be fine.

    Roger -- that was really fast! I only mailed the cards on Friday... I'm happy to hear (I think) that it made it there alright -- I printed all my cards on Fujibro paper, but it's thinner than the regular postcard stock and I wasn't sure if it would withstand the rigors of the postal system.

    Hey just received a card from donminbox, it is a store bought card rather than a film based postcard. Very disappointing. From the message on the card I believe we have a Christian spammer in this exchange. I PM'ed donminbox earlier today regarding the card but have not received a response.

    Great start to the round. Got Rachelle's IR postcard. As usual, a real treat to see. I love your IR work.

    You keeners are making me feel like a slackard. I won't be home from Guyana until Sunday, and leaving on the next Sunday (21st) for Vietnam. I think (hope) I have a great postcard waiting in my camera, if so I'll develop and print that before I leave, the photo gods willing. If not It will have to find another one in my vast storehouse of almost-great pictures. If it has to wait until mid-March I think that's still in the allowed time, and won't be flagellated with a wet noodle for being late?

    I also received a store bought card from donmimbox with a similar sounding message that rtbadman mentioned. I was equally disappointed.

    On the other hand, The card from mooseontheloose is a beautiful IR photo. I really love the ethereal nature of this print.:smile: Very well done. At first look I thought it might be a photo from a memorial on the Stanford University campus. I guess there are thousands of this style memorial around the world.

    Regards,
    Darwin

    P.S. I hope to get into the darkroom to print next week. I have a neg selected, just need time to print.
