Mine are going out today!

Did anyone scan their images? It would be great to have a gallery of all of the images.

Apart from the ones I sent out to my group about 2 weeks ago, I've kept a few extra Polaroids for myself. Scanning and putting it somewhere in the gallery was something I had in mind as well, but only after most people have received 'the real thing'.

I know dianna received my Ode to Polaroid; gr82bart, JLMoore3rd, rkmiec and (outside category) David: I guess you should have received something from me by now. Please let me know if you have/haven't. Thanks.

I've been out of town and won't be back until the 7th, so I'll report back if there are Polaroids in my mailbox when I get home.

Mine are going out today!

Yours was delivered yesterday. Very well packaged, and a very, very nice shot. I can learn from this... Thanks a lot!

I finally got mine taken (and scanned since I forgot to take an extra for myself). They are 4x5s on Type 52 film. May not get them mailed until next Monday.

I uploaded mine (http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=35593&ppuser=741), and also have a blog entry (http://alexhawley.wordpress.com/2008/06/19/a-slice-of-western-kansas/) telling about it.

Arrived today, Alex, and I've also received some nice Polaroids from JL Moore, kraker, and menacing tourist.

Things have been a little busy since getting back to the city, but I've got a still life in the planning stage. With Type 809 having reached truly absurd prices online, I don't want to waste any!

I hear you David. I blew three sheets of mine trying to do a transfer on paper that wouldn't take it. OUCH!! Being quite sparing with it from now on.

I wanted to do some cityscapes, but if I can't process them on the spot, it's just too risky. I've used 809 mainly in the studio, and when I went outside I discovered the holders were prone to light leaks in the full light of day. I was going out with three loaded holders and getting one or two keepers, and if I could have processed them in the field, I would have tweaked the color a bit more even on the "good" ones.

CRAP! Holy deadbeat of an organizer ... ahem ... I um ... well ... I forgot, what can I say? Please forgive me, I will make Polaroids 'till I get 'roids. Those of you that sent images to my Canadian address, my parents love them and I haven't seen them yet. But thanks. I am certain they are all wonderful.

I will go through all the posts and provide an update on all the goingsons (is there such a word?).

Regards, Art.

I've not sent mine or received any yet. Will get mine posted soonest. Can't decide if to redo them or not. I've done Pt/Pd prints of a T55 neg. Are group 1 happy with that. Options are POP print of same neg or proper T55 print?

An update to the update for Group 5: I've also received a Polaroid from dianna, so I think it is safe to assume she has also sent hers.

I sure hope this Ode gets going again.

Hi Folks,

OK, as penance for my deadbeatness, I have sent everyone on my list a Polaroid 600 'postcard' from the Postcard Exchange. This is in ADDITION to the Polaroid I have planned to send you all. I hang my head in shame ...
