Yesterday I received two more wonderful cards.
2F/F Keith you did not elaborate who the statue represents? and what equipment you have used? It is interesting to me to compare different papers and developers and how they effect the image. The lady sitting on the bench gives you an idea of the statues size. Well done. Canada could be cold but it has been mild for last ten years, global warming you know :p. It gets to -10 C so not really bad. What I don't like is the freezing rain staff that comes down occasionally. But I do like four seasons.
Matthijs I like this combination of Fomaspeed and Newtol beautiful tonality. Well exposed and printed.

Thanks guy's
Greg

Hi, Greg. Now I am really tempted to get on out of here. I really cannot handle the cold, which is one reason I want to stay. Here in L.A., we have had a mild summer, except for one three-day stretch that was over 100F.

As for the pic, thanks. That's a statue of Jackie Robinson's head. It was the last shot on a roll of HP5 I had shot walking and driving around L.A. The camera was a Nikon F Photomic T and the lens was a Nikkor-S 50mm f/1.4. I exposed it meterless (the old averaging T meter is worse than guessing, IMO), using EI 500. It was about high noon on a very clear and very hot day, so it must have been '500 at f/16. I developed in Ilford HC 1:63 using my +1 time. The enlarging equipment was a Schneider Componon-S 2.8/50 mounted on a B22XL. Ilford Multigrade developer and Rapid Fixer.

To All:

I have received lots of wonderful cards. Initially there was a fairly steady stream being delivered by the US Post Office. However, the past 3 weeks has only brought 3 or 4 cards. I am beginning to think that the Post Office is culling my mail for all the fantastic images it is finding.

I look forward to hearing if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Regards,
Darwin

Same here. I just got one the other day; the first in quite some time. It is the 13th. I should be getting 20.

Mine went out in the mail today - sorry for the delay but I vowed to shoot new images and not go back to the archives for something to print. Then Murphy's law kicked in and here it is the end of August. I still have 7 out of 30 still to come so I guess I am not the last of the late printers. The postcards received so far have to be among the best since I started.

I like the stragglers! It means that cards keep coming over the entire round -- I look forward to getting the mail everyday.

I've had a trickle of really nice postcards this week -- JTruman's beautiful "rusting dreams" is another inspirational print that is pushing me more and more into alt processes (contact frame is arriving this week!); Matthijs's capture of the nice light on the body cast, and 2F/2F's interesting photo of Jackie Robinson's head.

Received JTruman's beautiful card last week. Works on so many levels: very nice shot, the process makes it all the more interesting, and the end result is just fantastic. Also Birger's card arrived a few days ago, very nice shot as well.

That makes a total of 21 out of 30 received for me. And indeed, I too like the stragglers, although it would be nice to have an overview of who's still struggling and straggling. Would make it easier to see if there's any cards possibly lost in the mail...

Anyway, keep 'em coming!

Birger -- got your lovely postcard of your little chef at home -- wonderful shot!

Agreed. I'm still waiting for 13, although I know a few must still be in the mail. Not to make anyone feel guilty of course (!);), I just love receiving the cards and hope none have been lost along the way.

My friend's little girl who is 6 years old saw Birger's postcard of his little chef and really wanted to know who the girl was! I explained that it was this person in the postcard exchange's daughter who liked to cook! Kestrel, my friend's daughter, thought it was so cool that the little girl was from Norway!

Just FYI for those of you late in the sending process. I've recently moved and have a new address so if you haven't send your card yet please PM me for my snail mail details. If you've already sent it, no worries, everything is getting forwarded (but may take a while).

Cheers.
