I received 4 postcards from Gary Beasley, Daniel, Mick Fagan, and Chris Pandino.
All great and all so different. How did you make that cool uneven border, Chris? I like it. Great portait Mick, does your brother like it? Cool perspective Gary and Daniel!

For the border, I created the mask by scoring the paper to the desired dimensions, then slowly tearing away at the score. The mask was made of some kind of thick, black, pulpy paper that I had laying around.
I laid the mask on top of each print and exposed sans negative. I cranked through all 50 in about 5-10 minutes, so some may not be perfectly squared with the edges. I then set up my neg for the second exposure.
Nicole, just like Kate have mentioned, no worries. Some of us are busier than others….I am sure the wait will be worth it

First five cards arrived today Thanks Gary, Daniel, Mike, Mark and Chris.
This is wonderful. They came in with very little damage. only corners scuffed.
As BW Kate said they are so different but unique to each individual and there style and format they use. I like them all.
Mike your brothers expression in this image is being in right place at the right time. Very well done.Mark you probably remember me from the conference in Toronto? I like the moody look and grain adds to the image.Daniel your image has a such steely look to it. Xp-2 is a very nice film.Gary very difficult light. Well done.Chris I have some Technical Pan in 4X5 I taught to use it for night shutting but it seems to look great in daylight to.
Keep them coming Greg
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
Ready to send my PC's out.
I was able to print and label all my Post cards and will have them out in the mail tomorrow. I tried something different than I normal print, but it was fun for this exchange.
Hello Nige and Art,
Nige, I've ofter wondered what the 'Invisible man' did in his spare time. You must've had your bandages in the wash, or were you 'skinny' washing the car?
Interesting image though sharper than I would have expected.
Art another shot with lots of 'perspective' including aerial, as an engineer I find it fascinating - is it part of a hydro scheme ?
Daniel, I got yours and Niges' cards today, thanks!
