I'll get to printing after the July 4 holiday weekend (I'm out of town). Should go out shortly thereafter.

Fred - it only took 2 days to get to me. Just a short hop over the mountains and across the water. Canada Post was so eager to get it here, they weren't very careful with it. Your mailing tube had lost a cap from one end and had a hole bashed in it 1/3rd of the way down. Your print luckily, while creased, was not torn. I've got it flattening under books. It's a lovely image. I look forward to taking another look at it tomorrow.

I'm behind on my printing. I've been having problems with ferric oxalate and have wasted too much time. I'll have to pick a different process, maybe different negative. I will get something into the mail, but it won't be this month, sorry.

Sorry to hear about the abuse the tube took, I am glad the print did arrive though. I had gone to the tubes, because of the bending when sending larger prints, but it appears that it may not be enough.

I will await your print, no problem.

I received Carl's print in yesterday's mail. However, the postman does not seem to understand the words, "Do not bend". So, it is curved a little bit, but it wasn't creased.

Fred-

My tube arrived yesterday and was similarly mangled, but no holes. The print survived ok with just a bend but nothing that can't be cured with a good pressing. Thanks again for a lovely image.

Fred,

Your beautiful print arrived yesterday. Thank you, I like it.

It seems that German customs opened the tube and did not close it properly. So the tube arrived with one side open. But thank goodness, the print survived.

Cheers
Ruediger

PS: To all in my group. My Arista Ortho Film arrived, so I am able to do my enlarged negative and print. Sorry for being so late.

Well, it looks like I will have to rethink using tubes to send large prints, I was having issues with bending of envelops previously. Glad you enjoyed the print.

Hello all,

I am back from Ireland and will be working on my prints late this week and next week, as soon as I get through the mountain of work piled on my desk.

Well, I'm not finished; but after weeks of flailing around unable to decide which negative, which process, unhappy with all the prints I made, I've made a choice I'm glad to share. One completed print and others partway done. If the heat wave lets me, I'll be finished in a day or two.

I needed some time to get used to the Ortho film I use for the enlarged negatives and the inter-positives. Next time it will be easier.
