Kraker,

Let me know if and when you get the postcard I sent you. I will send another one if it doesn't arrive.

I am now up to 23 cards. I've already commented on cards from 21 people. Here are my comments on the two most recently received cards:

Kevin Caulfield: a great shot of the Pretenders in concert - the only scary thing is that Chrissie Hynde looks to be unchanged since I saw them 20+ years ago, whereas I know that I certainly don't look unchanged since 20+ years ago....

Bob: a great, blue toned image - almost looks like it was photographed using moonlight (by the way, I assume that "Bob" is "Bob F.")

Thanks, they are very special.

MattYes, sorry - I keep meaning to put my APUG nick on the labels, and forget every time :( ...

Ah well, as they have reached Canada, I guess I'll put up a scan in a couple of days.

Cheers, Bob.

Kraker,

Kate, it still hasn't arrived. I did get a very nice blue-toned picture from Bob (thanks, Bob), but no card from you.

Two more yesterday. Bob's wonderful blue-toned image and Donald's very well-executed shot of the zebras. Excellent!

I taught I have received all the card's coming to me. And then one more came along. What a trill :D .Bob F's wonderfuly blue toned print. First one for me. Very moody image, well composed.

Thank you Bob

Thanks BobF: for your wonderfully toned moody image of the neolithic burial chamber on the Wiltshire Downs. Very lovely!

Bob,

Thanks for the great card, never seen a blue toned print before. Ironically, your card was about the most damaged I received, even though it probably came the shortest distance...

btw) Is it ok for me to type your surname on APUG when referring to you?

Tom.

I've received Bob's postcard today. Very nice stones. Nice composition. I like blue toner very much.

Also received Justin Low's: very dark image of a cathedral at night. Very interesting. Where was that taken?

Hi Kate, thanks for the compliments. It's actually a restored shophouse that was first built early in the last century. It's located in Tanjong Pagar, the area between the Business District and Chinatown in Singapore.

Bob,

Tom.That's the Post Office for you: they must have been trying especially hard as the combination of the paper and the full width labels makes for quite a durable combination... Yours needless to say, came though completely unscathed, as indeed did Art's delicate Polaroid transfer (blimey Art, these must take forever to do!).

I wonder if the state that mine arrived in compared to yours and Art's is some kind of organized artistic criticism by postal workers worldwide...

Obviously anyone who has sent a postcard or print has my surname and an address, but like many, I prefer it to not be search-able on the interweb. Just plain paranoia on my part I know, but hey, just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean .... <insert theme tune from "The Twightlight Zone" here> ... ;)

Cheers, Bob.

Thanks Matt. She sure does, even up close. Same for me. When I first saw them in 1982 I was only 17, and I look a lot older now.

Because I didn't check my PO box for about two weeks, I received a mother lode the other day, 19 cards. Before those I think I had received about 6. I will try to write some comments on them.

Thanks for all the postcards I have received so far - a few were stunningly beautiful prints. As I had mentioned on another thread, I was without an enlarger for quite a while and finally got a new one recently. It was a diffusion one though, so I had to spend some time coming to grips with it - the whole contrast thing. Things seems to be under control now, so my postcards finally went out today. Apologies for the delay.

blimey Art, these must take forever to do!LOL It's actually quite quick. Since no darkroom is required to make these, watching TV while making these kills a lot of time.

I made about 150 (actually 230 if I included the defects - for another thread - long story) in one week end.

Thanks, Art.

The blue toned scenic by Bob and the grazing zebras from Donald. Thanks guys.
