I was best man at and shooting a wedding on Saturday (only 33C) and we reckoned we should have brought ice-vests.
A friend of mine was at a different wedding on Sunday, 37C outdoors and 40+ in the church. It was an hour-long all-standing greek-orthodox ceremony and the groom passed out; something about drinking beer instead of water beforehand :)

Prints will be in the post tomorrow. If all goes well with the respective postal services, they should arrive by the end of the month. I included two: a 5x7 and an 8x10. The 5x7 is the result of my fun project I hinted at. It isn't much, so I included an 8x10 from my recent trip to Mexico. (Notice how I left out pertinent details so as to not spoil any surprises!)

Cool night tonight. I think I will get some sleep. Will do my printing over the weekend which is to be a little cooler. Been going into work at 5:30am to finish before the heat hits - I have been working outside for the past two weeks, get to come indoors for pit stops and meal breaks. Lost two layers of skin even applying sunscreen every hour on the hour from sun rise at 7:30. Lucky the test cars have a basic mode of a/c operation.

So Andy, how's the front wheel drive Commodore coming along? ;)

You can buy it already. It is called a "Cruze" and comes off the Elizabeth production line. ;) ;)

Ohhh bugga - and here's me thinking I had something to sell to Wheels magazine.
(hmmm, thinks to himself, how can I trip up Andy next time...hmmm)

I'm sure you will trip me up one day, but presently I am having too much fun with all the toys I have to play with - oops I mean test. So I need to be careful or the fun will end.

Bob, your parcel arrived in today's post. My prints were done on the weekend. That leaves eight more parcels by the end of the week - or might that be a big stretch?
03-25-2013, 07:29 AM
No stretch for me. Just need to remember to bring them in with me to work to post!
03-25-2013, 08:35 AM
My prints are done, just require some minor spotting. Will be in the post by Wed or Thurs.

Status of prints.

11. MIchael W-Heading for the post by end of this week
Was aiming to post Friday... until I was told that's a public holiday! (i.e. no post) Doubt I'll get them done by Thursday so a Tuesday posting is looking more like it...
03-26-2013, 04:27 PM
Chalk one up for the postal services;)
Well I got the prints done... just need to flatten them tonight, although last time I turned the dry mount press on it blew the house fuses! Might have to resort to the clothes iron :)
So posting Thursday is back on, however there will be no one around on Friday to take it over to Hawthorn, so it should get there Tuesday!

I restocked on chemistry the other day - so it'll be the weekend printing I reckon, and then I can beat the post by wandering across the suburb...

mine will arrive early next week - still have some sheets of film to process from a 5X4 pinhole camera I was given - I think one of them would be a good shot for this print swap
last minute? No - I shot the shot for the swap 2 months ago..but you never know :-)
03-27-2013, 03:00 AM
I'm heading into the dark tomorrow so it will take a miracle for me to get it into the post by Easter. So that's one more for early next week.
03-27-2013, 05:23 AM
Looks like after Easter it is for sending out the prints to everyone. Now I assume this includes Tim F and SMBooth?
03-27-2013, 09:51 PM
OK, mine are now in the post.
mine got posted today as well...
