Tim,

That image of images rocks. Though, you'll need a dozen or so more fridges!

Regards, Art.

Just wanted to say that I've received a ton of cards so far and am really enjoying this.

My fridge looks lovely. (I apologize for the digitalness of the picture below)


Great idea to post an image of the images! Here's mine, with the same apology :o .

The fridge is actually a better idea, there's more space there...

Thanks to everyone who sent me a postcard,
this has been a very worthwhile community event and I'm already thinking about which negative to print for the next one. I was especially impressed to get a cyanotype and a lovely lith print.

Mmccarthy007-great printing and an interesting composition
Josep - a sad reminder of fascism on the continent, is Belchite part of Andorra or Spain?
Art- what an effort! Very dreamlike.
Black Dog - looks like a tranquil spot.
PeteH - the fragility of the leaf and delicacy of tones is great.
Javi - what was the hole made by? woodpecker?
Mick - There was a cylone in Melbourne in 1918, I didn't think they had global warming back then;) How did you get so much warmth in the print?
Robert Young - I really like this image and the print. We've got one of these near my dad's house but it's on a white base so it looks just like a golf ball on a tee.
Mark Fisher - Really impressive print with impact.
Mikeg - Looks like a great location for slope soaring and a beautiful day to be there.
Tom Kershaw - other worldly.
Matti - I love the delicacy of the sky above the horizon and the strength of the house. Lithotastic.
Randy - A beautiful woman, great skin tones and lighting, especially her face.
Jeffb - the last time I saw one of these was in Vietnam, there's something comical about them, I only wish my family had one.
Daniel - what a stout boat.
Kraker - one of the best IR shots I've seen. Love the white swan on the black black lake, very special.
Ian (stan160) - treacherous waters indeed. Can you tellme when this lighthouse was built?

Matt.

Matt.

The lighthouse was built in 1905, replacing two earlier ones. I found some more information and pictures on http://www.imagesofdorset.org.uk/Dorset/002/intro.htm.

In case anyone is confused - I printed the postcards in two batches, and went on holiday to Wales in between!

Think most of mine are in now......
Cyanotype by Salmonoid-another good'un. The process you've used really adds to the feeling of age-this could have been taken 100 or more years ago.

The Long Mynd by Mike G-lovely subtle interplay of light and shade and the patterns lead the eye into the frame towards the sweeping view in the distance.

Nature's Face by Randy-reminds me of Keat's 'ode on a Grecian urn'-like something from another time.

Belchite by PepMiro-a poignant reminder of Europe's troubled recent history.

Portrait by Ribersky-like a 30s/40s film still. You can almost hear the jazz playing moodily in the background.

Lolka Bolka by Jeffeb-the more you practice the more luck you get.

Chicago by Scott H-feels at once contemporary and old

First Snow by Lynda-well worth getting cold for. Snow scenes are tough to do but this is vg-you could try going a bit lighter and upping the contrast to see what happens maybe?

I90 Floating Bridge by Brian Chambers-beautifully serene dialogue of light, shade and form.

Tree Skeleton by Matt Corringe-Starkly minimal clear winter light. Winter can be such a great time for photography.

The Avenger by bmaccarthy007-the angle emphasises the heroic pose of the statue.

Thanks!:)

I have to say my two favourites from the above are Brian Jeffrey's image from Budapest and Tim Gray's Ocean City image.

Kindest Regards

I'm already looking forward to the next round too! This really has been a blast. I wish I could send out lith prints, fiber prints, cyanotypes, etc., but the old makeshift darkroom barely supports RC at this point in time...

Birger, thank you for the card, which arrived today. 7 days to cross Oslo and with a paper barcode strip stuck to the front :rolleyes: , but perhaps 17th May is a good excuse! Anyway, it is a beautiful image and I will take your advice to visit the Lofoten Islands.

Randy Ellis, something about nature reclaiming its own from man? Another nicely toned print too.

cheers
Pete

Belchite is in Spain, in the province of Zaragoza. In 1937, the city was massively bombed during long hours until all houses were destroyed and nost of the unhabitants killed.

Justin,

Mine seem to be taking forever to show up as well. I sent most of them weeks ago and the first people are just now starting to post that they arrived.

I received one from Singapore. I building reflected in a building. There is basically no information on the card except the postmark.
