    progress

    spent a wonderful day in the darkroom.... finished printing and toning... will mail out this week...

    i used moersch copper toner for the 1st time - very interesting, but very precise! it doesn't do well with multiple cards intermittently overlapping each other in the tray and 10 seconds variation in time in the soup really does make a difference in tone!

    they'll be on their way shortly...

    next i'll finally spend some time with the cards i've rec'd and haven't had time to really look at! getting close to getting caught up!

    This week I received three cards:

    - "Anger angel II" from David. The story is amazing, and I like the composition.
    - "Teasel" from drpsilver. I love the somewhat high contrast, as well as the textures. That's also a good demo tha a pretty old camera and a standard lens can do marvels (I still have my AE1P and still use it from time to time)
    - a view from Rocky Mountain National Park from Ataim I guess this is a contact from 4x5, or a very limited enlargement, but the amazing amount of details is great!

    Yhanks!

    Laurent, it was a limited enlargement of the 4x5. Oh and the detail in a 20x24 is just amazing.

    Thanks

    I've received some fantastic cards so far! Thanks to everybody. Unfortuantely I had to reprint a few cards as I messed up a few during mounting. Those will go out this week.

    Love that exchange.

    Best,
    Sebastian

    Received another two this morning.

    from Eugene Anikin (anikin) - made me smile though a bit unsettling at the same time. Thank-you.
    from Mark Sauerwald - beautiful print with an interesting story, thank-you.

    I do enjoy receiving these postcards and our postman's loving it!

    OK!! Got my stamps, figured out how to make labels in Windows 8 ... Uh oh .. where are the cards? Soon, people, soon.

    Anakin--"the greatest happiness"--you're braver than me. Didn't one of those things in a golfer in Florida? Is
    Vyshemirsky--"Rainy Scotland"--very nice. I don't know how you guys do color when I can hardly do black and white.
    Varya--" Building An Interociter"-- I think I saw this series in the gallery. This one really made me laugh because I love the detail in your mouth/hearing protection. Is that your addition already come that way? Nice and sharp throughout.
    Jimbop-- "Brothers In Arms"--fantastic, the one on the right is staring directly at you and the eyes of tack sharp. This would be a heck of a portrait home so that the eyes were right at your eye level, nice and large.
    TXFZ1--"Angry Angel II"-- nice tones, great story all of detail in the ring is captured so the lighting was just right. Should I infer anything relative to the one star on the Angels Brown?
    Mark Sauerwald-- "Mission San Juan Bautisita"--beautiful. Your note said it was shot with a 210 mm lens, so I assume 4x5 or so, given that it's a sharp as can be from the front of the bell to the statue at the end of the walkway. Great job.
    Todd Haynes--"Shrine of Children's Shoes"--amazing find. I have to ask what is the story behind the shoes on the wall. I also like the detail in the stained-glass window. It looks like it's indoors looking out through the window, and I just about never get a picture like that without the light thru the window blowing out all highlights. Very nice.
    I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger. ("Oohlala, by the Small Faces").

    I plan to make up for it by the time I''m 84 ...
