Spent the better part of an evening (til 3:00 a.m.) in the darkroom printing the postcards. Tried using some Kentmere FB paper but I think our safelight is not the right one for this paper. I didn't do a paper safelight test but I will when I have more time. I still have a sneaky suspicion that it is not safe.
Glad I picked two brand new images for this round! Decided to use my Ilford postcard paper instead of some untried FB.

Kate:

For future reference, if you are not going to use the Ilford postcard paper, consider RC paper. It holds up well to the trials and tribulations of the postal system, and AVERY labels stick well to it (be sure to use as large a label as you are able).

Matt

P.S. 3:00 a.m. is different when you are in the darkroom, isn't it :)

Hi Folks,

Last week, I got 5 postcards to begin this round.

AlexW's salute to an air show in vernacular style is great.
Doug's Pepsi Cola sign made me look twice as at first I though he printed the neg backwards, but the sign was shot from behind, so all is good in the world!
A very nicely printed flower still life from Tim.
I'd love to take a photo trip to the Orchard in Hollis, NH
What made Jesse look so serious, Mick? Yes, her ear rings are freaky.

Regards, Art.

Recieved it today-thanks, very atmospheric. You might try Fomatone when the PWT runs out.

Phew, mine will go out tomorrow. Since we split the image title on our two images, and wanted to make sure, that everyone getting ones card will also get the otherones card, Ingo and I decided to send postcards to all participants. So do not be surprised to find my card in the mailbox, but I am not on your list. That happens intentionally ;)

I have received four cards so far, a big refreshment form Hal, a nice surprise from Art, a nice landscape from Jake and an image taken at an air show, great composition from ... well, I can not read the name.

Also I still look for people who want to send an extra card to Thomas Linow and thanks to everyone who already did so, I sent your addresses to Thomas. Oh, did I mention that I still look for people willing to send an extra card to Thomas?

Well, I managed to print all my cards over the weekend - kinda weird for me doing 'production line' print; all my prints to date have been strictly limited editions of one :-).

Posted the first 4 today; the rest will trickle out over the week - I figure not posting them all at once means less chance of Royal Mail losing the whole lot.


Jake - I'm now thoroughly confused about where I should send your card; the address on my list is France, but I saw you mention a Scotland address too! If it's the Scotland address I should be sending to, can you PM it to me?

Ruediger - I have exactly one spare card! I can send this to Thomas if you're still looking for some more?

Best, Peter

I must not have received the "latest" list, because I only have the address in Normandy:confused: .

I've PM'd Jake directly, but...

MattEven worse, I have not sent a list with the address in Scotland as I only got the Normandy address from Randy. :confused:

Jake, if you PM your Scotland address to me I will distribute it to the participants via email.

The next four cards arrived. Thanks to Mike for a beautiful Lith print, Jonathan for the old barn in Woodmont Orchards, Doug Smith for a nice high key sundial and Ingo for the opposite side of my card.

My cards are in the mail and should arrive soon in your mailbox.
