Okay, a few typo's on my part so far and one new late member. PM's have been sent.
I hope there are not too many more corrections - my fingers seem to be out of sync with my brain.
I know some have started printing - me - I think I know what negative I want, but I've never printed it so time will tell :)

Got the pm's and added the late person, and made the address correction.

I'm doing this a bit backwards. The address labels are all typed out, and the stamps have all been purchased, and the envelopes are all assembled.
The (new to me) little dichroic enlarger is now set up and aligned. Now to calibrate the filter settings to align with expected contrast grade numbers.
Not quite sure of the neg to print, but I have a roll I shot at night in DC last summer that looks very promising as negatives, so printing will likely start from that roll.
Today I got the first postcard. Uwe - oh what a surprise - sent a nice card. Like it. Thanks Uwe!

My cards (except for Craig Cross, and Ruediger Stobbe, whose images from me are going in the same envelope for the small print exchange next week) are now in the mail.

My first postcard arrived on Saturday. And from overseas of all the places: Uwe's "Gasthaus". Very lovely!

I also recieved Mike Wilde's "postcards" and as always, they were a treat. I missed a few rounds, very glad I'm back in.

Been gone for a few days to the Nagasaki Lantern Festival -- maybe an image for a future exchange? -- and was glad to see two cards waiting for me upon my return home. Uwe's old Gasthof, whose roof looks like it's seen better days, and Mike Wilde's hat trick of cards. Image-wise I like the colour portrait best, but paper-wise I like the Capitol Building. It's always a pleasure to see these old papers in use!
I received Mike Wildes three pack together with the print for the small print exchange. Thanks Mike, as ever I nice bouquet of prints on paper no longer produced. And nice prints anyway. Thanks a lot Mike.

Couple more cards came my way. Mike Wilde's set of three. I agree with others, the portrait is just stunning. I had an old roll of Supra III paper which I was thinking of throwing out, but looking at this portrait, I'm starting to reconsider. The fogging on the edges does not take away from the image at all. Just lovely!
Couple of duckies from Jim17x. Very nice capture. I like the sparkles on the water!

I forgot, but really didn't know, I should include any shooting data on my prints...
If anyone receives some from me, they where shot with an Graphlex Graphic View w/arista paper & developer..
Jim: Kewl shot of those ducks BTW.

Hi all, I was in a hurry to get them out before I started vacation.
The image is a slot canyon wall in Goblin Valley Park, Utah. It was shot on Tri X with an M4-P and a 35.
I can't wait to get home and see what prints the mail holds for me.
