Mine are printed. With any luck, I will get a chance to dip them in selenium this weekend and they can go during the week

Uh oh, I forgot about this.

Uh oh, I forgot about this.
Prints aren't due until the end of July, so you have a few weeks.
I'm busy in the darkroom trying various things. When I'm really happy with something I'll print it for the exchange.

That's a relief, good luck everybody.

Phew, why does life always like to throw me 'interesting' 'challenges' right when I don't want them?! In the middle of moving house, every room filled with boxes and dust-bunnies... except the darkroom, which I haven't started to pack yet, because I've been waiting for Alexander to be well enough for me to not feel guilty about leaving him with Laura for an evening while I get out there and print... Mother in law is staying tonight to help pack the last few remnants, so I'm of, down the back of the garden to lock myself away and make some prints for you guys... hope they turn out okay!
Tomorrow... I'll be pulling my enlargers down and lugging them up to the new place with a tiny makeshift (ie, un-plumbed spare room!) darkroom. Hopefully I'll get to drop my prints off personally in the coming week.

To all in group 1. Walbergb - has had to fall the wayside in this round due to urgent family matters.
So I put the options out there. 1. The group is resized to 6, and the extra prints from those who have already sent in are returned, 2. Some one steps in does a set of prints to fill in the gap(which I am happy to do as I still have yet to do my prints), 3. Other thoughts welcomed.
let me know

Well, keeping it even at two groups of six sounds good to me...
I printed mine up last night, but I'm not entirely happy with them, but they're not toned and polished yet, who knows what miracles might happen in the selenium bath ;)

It has been a bit quiet here. I have three sets of prints from Group 1, Barrie B., SMBooth and Munz6869.
Walbergb has had to withdraw, and I am aware of 4 sets of prints coming, Hoffy, SteveR, Sweettea and mine.
So how is everyone else printing along?

Mine are done. I was going to dip them in Selenium, but might have to forgo that. If I can't do it on the weekend, I'll send mine as is
07-19-2011, 05:35 PM
Mmmm forgot about this again. I might have to give it a miss....
JOKING!!!! You'll get my prints by the end of the month. :)

We've just moved house, haven't got a decent internet hook-up yet. I ripped out the prints before I pulled down my darkroom at the old place, had been waiting on some bleach to finish off the prints before toning them, but having no luck... was in town for the week with the bub in hospital, so I ducked down to Vanbar, they said they'd have some ready the next day... went back the end of the week, they then said it'd be at least another week... dang...
I'll do my best with what I have, they may end up just getting toned & spotted and sent off.... or maybe delivered, we'll see how we go...

Mine are done, just drying now. I'll try to get them in the mail today, as I will be away for the rest of this week.
07-27-2011, 06:21 AM
Pheeeeeeewwww, I made my prints tonight and I'm impressed :|
I will post them off tomorrow.
07-27-2011, 06:26 AM
Mine made it into the post today. Should be there before the end of the week
