I would love it if we could all get together again in the future. It's amazing how well we all seemed to get to know each other within the span of a few days. Let's start talking about it. There's a big photography festival going on this summer in Santa Fe. I would be happy to get us all together for something then if people were interested.

Todd, that's a great idea! I'm in! I've heard about the Santa Fe festival, and it would be awesome to attend, and to have a reunion, if you have any info about next summer, please let us know, so that we can put it on our calendars! Cheers, Krystyna

:D :D :D Greetings All,

Since all of my photos went out, I treated myself to all of yours on Sunday, and (borrowing from Bill, and thank you Bill!) all I have to say is WOW!, your photos brought me much joy, and even a couple of tears, because each one was like a jewel in my hand, and reminded me of each of you...

Bill, I was expecting a portrait (for some reason, LOL!), and you surprised me with some awesome metal, big and bold, and you know I love metal!

Todd, a beautifully composed landscape, I love the branch, the photo reminded me of the print you were working on at the workshop, very Zen!

Steve, another beautifully composed landscape, with the light and airy grasses, and peaceful water, inviting us all in to sit a while, I love it!

And Clay, a very intriguing composition, very moody, and very Texas, I love it, thank you for the "happy"!

I can't stop smiling, looking at these photos!
Thank you all again so very much!

Blessings, Krystyna

I received your photo today, Krystyna. Oh my!!! How wonderful!!!

Awaiting Les', and I will mail mine and his together. Sorry to keep y'all waiting (gives me time to wring my hands and despair over whether or not to try a different neg, or go back and dodge that area just a bit more, or perhaps add a bit more contrast, or......!)

I just got your print from the mailman a few minutes ago.

What can I say? It's a stunning image and print. Maybe I missed it at the Meet and Greet from the workshop, but I'd love to hear the narrative of you finding these images, and how you came to find your particular creative voice.

You guys are bumping "build picture rails" way up on my list of priorities!

Well your prints arrived in fine shape Krystyna and they are beautiful.

I will get with Todd and we'll fight over who gets what.

Valarie, I have prints for Les. Hope you haven't sent those off as yet. I have been in Hawaii for several weeks (sorry it was only work).

This was a lot of fun.

They haven't gone to the mail yet, Steve. Anyone else have a print to add (if you havent sent it already)? I'd like to get the photos mailed to Les by Dec 1.

Valerie, might I suggest that you talk to David Brown about the possiblity of him bringing over the unmounted prints when he visits the UK later in Dec. If he agrees to bring them I will send mine back with him.

Well, a neat thing happened today. I received from Valerie her print and one from Les. thank you both.

The great thing about this coming so late was that I don't think anybody expected it. So it's turned out to be Christmas in May!

Valerie, the thing I remember about you was how understated and modest you were about her work. Then when you pulled out your prints, of course eveyone was blown away. This print just sent is really fine, and I am proud to own it. Thanks again.

Mahalo and Aloha to Les. I now have a modest collection of your work.

Until our paths cross again.

Well the hits keep on coming. Thanks for the nice surprise today, Kevin. That's a great image. Your letter seems so apologetic for the timing, but I thinks it's perfect.

I just got back from the mountains to find a print from Kevin waiting for me! Wonderful image! And no need for the apologies. You sent a print and that's what matters to me!
Thanks Kevin.

I just retrieve the mail and sure enough a wonderful print from Kevin. This is a wonderful image as I have been focused on photographing people so the timing is perfect. Thanks Kevin (aka deadbeat :) ;) )

Cheers,
Bill

cool! Yeah, I felt like I wanted to do a people shot since I had zippo to share for portfolio review during the workshop, so probably the only thing most of y'all have seen of mine is that propeller shot.


Thanks Kevin (aka deadbeat :) ;) )

Cheers,
Bill



yeah, yeah, yeah... (;

Dear Friends,

I got the mail on Saturday and what a wonderful surprise, a photo from Kevin, it's Christmas in August, thank you so much, and I love it, a beautiful sensitive portrait, Kevin, you are waaaaay too modest!

...and then a lightbulb goes on, and I recall another photo package, that I put aside for safekeeping and like a dope forgot all about, but I found it again, and my apologies to Val & Les!, and my belated thank yous!, for two more beautiful photographs to add to my collection and memory of a wonderful time spent in Texas!

You are all an inspiration!
With Gratitude & Blessings,
Krystyna
