Lisa!

Perhaps you''ll have some good shooting weather this weekend?

I am wondering what's in the box these days. It went out with camera, a list, spare battery, might have picked up a roll of FP4 in Canada...

So let's shoot, remember to turn the camera off when finished! Let's get that camera moving.

Not much you can do here except wait and hope everything is alright with Lisa.

Maybe the next traveling camera could be by invitation only,...or somethin'. It's amazing how long these things take. I love the idea of it all but if it's not the film mysteriously turning out partially blank, it's the camera itself disappearing for weeks, or even months(!), at a time. Kinda frustrating. This all seems so simple.

Perhaps now's a good time to dust off "Discussion On Round 6" or "Camera 6 Concepts-Discussion".

What about hooking up an emergency beacon to the camera?

After one week without movement it would be initiated...

I am going to drop her a note via snail mail. Perhaps she has just sort of tuned out of photography for a bit.

A subtle reminder might help.

Do you not think a camera turning up in the post would be a subtle enough reminder?!!!

Well sure Steve... but adopt a "Calm and Abiding Spirit". Things will work out.

Over the last year I have learned a lot about calming myself. At work I can say "YOU IDIOT!" or I can say "Alex, please step back a moment while I figure out the next best step to solve this issue. Your input will be appreciated as soon as I have analyzed what has just happened."

One way gets results, the other makes enemies and put blocks in the way of successful team building. Both ways are still a challenge.

If you don't think I am frustrated by this, you are wrong.

I stuck a cyanotype print in there. If nobody has claimed it yet, someone should take it out and keep it.

Now I would love for that to make it's way back to me. I would love to compare your C-work to the stuff I did a couple of summers ago. I have a real fondness for blue.

I was going to suggest you get the print, Tim, since you risked your camera, supplied the roll of film and organized this round. I'll leave the print in the package when it's time to ship it, or, I could mail Walter's cyanotype to you to lessen the possible wear and tear. After all, there are still 5 people after me and before you on the list. That's a lot of miles yet. I can even scan the image so that everyone can see it (if that's okay with Walter).

It'd be great to get Camera 5 before June 24th when I hit the road to Bill Schwab's Photostock 2008: http://www.northlightworkshops.com/workshops/michigan_gathering/index.html . A creative group shot, taken with the Round 5 camera, of a bunch of APUG'rs would be fun!

My fingers are crossed, and, I think Síle brought up a good point with her last message regarding what has happened since the sacrificing of chickens stopped. Can't argue the point! Thursday night, there will be one less chicken in this world. 'Tuscan Grilled Chicken' (Pollo Alla Diavolo) here I come!

It was a tough job Marc but someone had to do it.. thank you for being brave enough to step forward and take one for the team.. I might even do the same myself this weekend..

As for Bill Schwab's workshop.. I'm green with envy, I would love to be on that.. I wonder if it would help my cause if I was let lose in a chicken farm with some rosemary and butter :rolleyes:

Sure, no problem. I think I have a scan of it somewhere but damned if I can find it.

Some people were doing this on another forum, and it became kind of a custom to include an inexpensive gift for the next in line... plus I was trying to make up for keeping the thing for so long.

I have PMed Lisa, she has no listed email address... I have sent her a snailmail card asking her to just mail the camera. Outside of a trip to Washington, I have no idea what else to do. It's only the 16th, there is still hope you get the camera by next week.

Cross your fingers everyone.

Friday is "APUG Pagan Chicken" night. Y'all whip out your favorite pagan chicken recipe and hit the grill, I mean inferno, sauce pan, or other diabolical method of cooking el pollo loco.

Well, one would think. ;)

Got your snail mail today, Tim. Thanks for the reminder (ah the guilt!). My apologies to all for the delay.

Will take my picture tomorrow am and have it in the afternoon post to Michigan...should reach Marc by the end of the week.

Lisa

ps - just opened the box. The cyanotype is beautiful. Will pass it forward and hope it reaches Tim at the end of the line.

Wow - everyone breathe out a collective sigh!

I have since moved - how do we make sure the new address is taken note of? I think I was 18th on the original list (listed as "hkr"). I am at a temporary address until around mid-September and then off to the East Coast.

Tim - do we know who "foxyscootie" (#17) is? I suppose we can provide the address at the time to him/her when they are ready to mail it out to me.

Thanks all! WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT!!!

Mucho Gracias Lisa. That's Spanish for "Much Grass".
