Received a nice contact print of the Olympic Stadium Structure form Andrew. Unfortunately for me my wife found it outside the front door in a bit of a sorry state where it looks to have been trodden on and left for dead in the rain by the postman (I suspect he didn't realise he had dropped it as normally he is very good). I have rewashed it to get the grit off it but there are so many lumps and bumps in it from the gravel it could almost be a braille picture.
Ed- I have another small round of postcards to print for non-APUG friends, I'll send you another!
4/30. Andrew Kitteridge - Olympic stadium. Amazing. I still remember as a child watching the 76 Games in colour, we had only had colour TV in the town where I grew up for two year at that stage. The stadium was always shown from either within or from a helicopter view point. There used to be a roof if I recall correctly that the cables shown I the picture could some how draw over the arena. Brilliantly captured the stadium.
Alright, I'm starting to fall behind in commenting on cards.
A lovely colour image from ndrs arrived today. I like the irreverant nature of the hat in the grass.
Uwe's thistles were the first to arrive. The toning/paper really works with this image.
Edward Bray's GWR Pannier Tank 6430 and Autocoach W225 is exactly the kind of train image I would like to take but can never really find (esp. here in Japan!)
I went to the Olympic Stadium on my first trip to Montreal in '96, I like the angle you decided to shoot it from Andrew. A nice take on a Canadian icon.
And Marco Santa Cruz's dreamy beachscape is an early favourite, I love the soft quality of the light, water, and shadows.
Great start to the round so far! I'm in the process of developing a huge backlog of film from my trip to Thailand and Laos earlier this year, hopefully something will reveal itself to be worthy of this exchange!
My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. D. Arbus
5/30. Stephen Frizza - from the archives, arrived today in an envelope sealed with a finger print. Great card that has been claimed by my 5 year old daughter. She says if her brother (7 yrs old) can take photos why not a dressed chimp?
