First time in the postcard exchange and it looks as though I'm the first to receive a postcard from Round #26.
Many thanks to Andy (Oxleyroad) for sending me a print from his first play with IR Film. Not only am I thrilled to have a 'real print', I've never seen any IR work in real life. Thank you so much, Andy! (I'm also incredibly jealous of your garden as my own little patch is now a mess of bird netting, stakes and overgrown weeds... yours looks perfect!) What a wonderful introduction to the postcard exchange.
I received my first card from this round: J Rollingers fine street shot form the Michigan Avenue.
My cards went out on Monday. I hope you enjoy tehm.
I too received J Rollinger's "Michigan Avenue" - an interesting example of "street" photography.
And remarkably, I also received piu58's card too! All the way from Germany to the west coast of Canada in 4 days.
"Simmer House" has some interesting shapes and textures and it is well printed as well.
2 down, 22 to go!
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
piu58's Simmer House has also made it to the east coast of Canada. First to arrive in my mailbox this round. Very interesting card, I love the weathered wood, the various joints old and new. I really should get my camera out before I take the paint brush to the house this summer!
I have received three cards to-date. The card from J Rollinger brought back memories of my trip to Chicago last year for a cousin's wedding. We stayed not too far from where this photo was made. The card from piu58 is a wonderful mix of tone and texture. Mooseontheloose photographed a Japanese icon from a very different perspective. I like it a lot. Fantastic mix of high and low values that "play against" each other well. (The stamp Rachelle used is cool also.)
Two cards arrived (thankfullly dry as we are officially in the rainy season now) today:
Oxleyroad's "The Back Garden" -- a nice subtle look of IR. As I have one roll of HIE left, I'll have to start experimenting with the other infrared films out there. I like the minimal grain in this Rollei film.
J Rollinger's "Michigen Avenue" has a nice contemporary feel to it, and the big yellow schoolbus brings back memories.
My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. D. Arbus
mooseontheloose - Miyajima Torii at night. I have never seen this icon shot from this angle. I can appreciate the effort you went to to get this shot having been there myself (back in my d*****l days). I have also not come across the fuji paper you have used before. I like it.
