I just finished printing my cards and have a question. What do you address the cards with? A marker, pencil? I think a ball point pen would indent the card.

I copy and paste from my address list into a word doc, delete the user names, then change the doc to two column, then make sure no addresses are split between two pages. I then print out on 8.5x11 full sheet label and cut out each address on my Rototrim. This way I accommodate all long addresses with no problem.

If you are going to hand write the address, just make sure that the ink will dry. I have had trouble with RC paper. Fiber no problem.

I write (or print) on Avery labels and then stick them to the back of the prints. I find that ink tends to smear on the back of RC prints (especially the pens I use). But many people do write on the backs of their postcards, it's whatever you prefer.

First cards hit the box today!!!

Kris's "House of Refuge" Interesting technique with the out dated film and cross processing. Nice to get some color, as it's rare in these exchanges. Nice one.

Mike's 3 cards as always, very interesting, with the uses of old papers and different chemistry. Image no. 2 in particular I like and find inspiring. Must play with some of the old fogged paper I have saved.

piu58's Canoo trip, love the ripples on the water and the IR effect. Again, nice to see the variety of techniques and materials.

And finally I received this totally boring, poorly printed shot of a door, not going to mention any names though.

Thanks Roger! Glad you liked it. :)
I sent out four different cards - 3 color, 1 b&w - randomly shuffled, so not everybody's getting the same card from me.

To All:

Unless a miracle occurs, or I get a bunch of darkroom time, my cards will not be out until mid-July. A combination of a planned vacation/wedding, computer problems, and commitments to other organizations has made me late for the last two rounds. This has got to change! Maybe in Round #24 will be better.

Regards,
Darwin

I can only speak for myself, but nor worries on being late, just send them out when you can. I am still receiving cards from round 22 which is cool as far as I'm concerned.

Hey wait a minute, I just checked and mid July is still on time, the schedule is print June/July and breather August and then I assume signup round #24 in Sept. Just make sure you get printed and mailed in time to sign up for round #24. :)

I too will be delivering later than usual - currently on holiday and working in Australia until late July/early August.
Until I return to BKK, I won't be able to comment on any cards, but will ensure that's one the very first things to be done when I get home.

Received Jim's "Pinky & I" had to look at a bit to figure it out. Interesting perspective with camera leaned over, isn't that a 6x6? Nice highlights on the metal.

Yesterday I got the first two cards from this round: Kris's "House of Refuge", an interesting colour shot, and Roger Thoms's Yard Office: Well seen and nice grey values. Thank you!

a nice bunch in the box today:

Roger Thoms' "Yard Office," great tonal values - the KB25 (one of my new favorites) and pyrocat work well together

Jim Rollinger's "Pinky & I," a fun image that makes you think

and Mike Wilde's "What's with the envelope?" - three images! While "Stage and Shanty" and "Queen Anne's Lunch" are wonderful, "Overcast Spring Day Walk" is amazing - the ancient (how ancient? 1950s?) Ansco Indiatone really carries the feel, great work

Mike Wilde's ancient (how ancient? 1950s?) Ansco IndiatoneKris

I'm really not sure. I was gifted 1000 sheets of 5x7 Indiatone a couple of years ago, and packaged it up to interested apugers for the cost of reimbursed postage.

The original case had an address label on the box of GAF Canada in Cooksville, which is a predcessor community to the City I live in now.

I have asked some people I work with who have lived here all of their lives, and none who were native to the Cooksville area in the late 60's onwards knew of this business location.

One guy I queried actualy worked for Braun at thier Canadian import distributor in Cooksville as a youngish teenager in the early 70s shipping razors and flashguns, and cannot ever recall any Ansco /GAF competitors being mentioned as being in the area.

I received Kris Haggblom's Wtachtower today, very nice landscape, with great tones and a grain that really helps the image.

I also received Mike Wilde's envelope with three prints in it. Three very nice prints, I really like the Stage and Shanty one, makes me want to stand there and fish. Queen Anne's lunch is also very nice, but my favourite is "Overcast spring day walk". The old paper looks very nice, and I'd really love to go up the river and see what's after the bend.

Thanks !

My first cards in from Mike Wilde. I look forward to this pack of images on old papers coming each round. I particularly enjoyed image two on the old Ansco Indiatone paper. Looks like many of the images that my grandparents had only this one was printed now.

Thanks Mike.

Second card arrived today. Noonan building from Roger R. Thoms. Such ultra fine grain. Love the vertical door in the horizontal weather boards.
