I have just received a lovely 8x10 contact print of a street scene from Randy Libersky. It is much appreciated.

I put my print in the mail today.

Just got back from 12 days in New Zealand and the print was waiting for me. Nice shot of a nerve plant - well composed with good tonal range and textured "feeling" of the leaves captured. Thanks Travis!

You're welcome, Tony. I'm glad you like the print.

Just got back from some time on the road. Found a very interesting vertical from Light Leak. Thanks Jonathan.

Mine went out last week to a land far, far away.

Message from a land far, far away.

I received a wonderful photo of a 100-year-old pair of shoes found after the demolition of burned house. I really liked the photo and it made me think of a little-known Dutch painter called Jopie Huisman. He was a trader in rags and rubbish, and he painted the things he found, like discarded dolls, old knitted underwear, and especially old, worn-out shoes. He never sold his paintings, but kept by far the most and made his own museum in Workum, the north of the Netherlands. Iím going to be buying a nice frame for your photo.

Thanks Jim!

Black Dog... should we beware of the promises of the jumped-up pantry boy?:D

Tony said "Sent mine today. I feel good (full meaning will become apparent when print arrives!)"

I've had in my possession for a few days now, well actually a week at least, a superbly crafted and considered print from Tony Egan. It is, and I don't exaggerate here, a beautiful piece. Tony, many thanks for sharing.

Oh yes...it came mounted which is an added bonus.



PS - my print is complete and will be posted tomorrow :)

Thanks for the kind words. Just to complete the story it was a concert shot featuring the great and now late James Brown and his sax player - hence the "I feeeeeel good" clue!

My Print went out yesterday. It is my first ever attempt at lith printing, and boy, is it fun.

03-06-2007, 09:21 AM
Posted mine today, too...

Received yesterday! Thanks very much. Very nice...but I want to know about them (there are TWO!) now George. What can you tell me?

03-06-2007, 03:49 PM
Printed, mounted and packed for shipping in the morning!

Hi Mike, I am sorry that I didn't write you a note, I was so much in a hurry to send them and have such little time the last days...

The one is made in the famous Gare du Nord in Paris and the other on the island of Tinos (Cyclades) in Greece. I guess you can identify which picture is from each place.

Tinos is one of the best places you can visit if you're interested in traditional architecture (superb villages, strange landscapes), but you have to be lucky with the weather (almost the whole summmer is too hot, too windy and no clouds in the sky). I guess that March or April and then September-October is best. The picture is made with the Rolleiflex on APX 100.

La Gare du Nord was about to get cleaned up and restored when I visited so I decided to take a few pictures. Unfortunately, I had little time and only the Rolleiflex with me. I would prefer a 4x5 and a few days, in order to get something really good out of it...
