Today I received 4 postcards!
Very cool street shot taken by Tim Gray , I'm sure everyone has mentioned that we are in Round #12! Love the plastic crabs taken by Ian Harding or Stan 160. Even plastic looks great in B&W! Got the most amazing postcard of several different kinds of texture by Randall Murrow or randyman. I am assuming you took this in Texas somewhere. And lastly Black Dog's ethereal image of Callanish. Well done Jake! Can't wait to see the entire series. I know what you mean about very atmospheric places. You can go back again and again and still have images to take. Thanks!

"Evergreen Barn" is located in the Evergreen Valley just outside Yosemite National Park. It was a wonderful day to photograph when I stumbled across this barn.
This was photographed with a Hasselblad 501C/M loaded with Plus-X (rated at EI 100). The negative was developed for my normal time in D-76 (1:1) The paper developer that I used is a little unusual because I add potassium carbonate to give richer blacks. The formulation used for this print was Ilford Multigrade developer (1:9) with 10% (by volume) addition of 6% potassium carbonate solution. If you have any questions please feel free to send me a PM.
Holding a card as an original it is nice to know how you got there.
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
Thanks Kate!-I'm going to print up a whole set and send them out in future rounds. Right now I'm printing pics of WW2 battlefields in Normandy which is very different subject matter for me. After rereading Josef Koudelka's 'Chaos' I'm now wanting to go panoramic.....7x17 inch here I come [or at least a 6x17 back on my 8x10 when I get it...]
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
I mailed my cards today. I got one today too! From WTD shot. Nice. I love toy cams.
Sorry in advance to the 2 or 3 folks that will have a slight fog on the bottom of the print. I ran out of paper so I couldn't reprint. I put the prints back in the box so I can expose more and for some reason, I fogged 2 or 3 of them on the bottom.
BTW, mailing to Guam is regular postal rate from the continental US. It isn't international. My count this time around 17 international, a dismal 4 US (1 for Guam so that makes 5). I have a lot going to The Netherlands!

Whoops. I forgot this was round 12. Haha.
Haven't received any cards yet, but thats because I'm moving soon and gave you guys my mom's home address. She's been really enjoying all the cards that have arrived - I should be able to see the first batch over Thanksgiving.
I've done the same thing and given my parent's address, just in case things go my way.

Jake Williams' still life: interesting high key abstract that you have to work out
Ian (stan160) has sent a typical english summer seaside scene of some novelty plastic crabs. Do people really buy those things? Don't answer that!
Pepe Miro's village in Catalunya looks very precipitous. What was the toner?
Randall Murrow's Waller TX looks slightly warmtone to me. Did you tone it, or which developer did you use?
Art sent a wonderful cyanotype. I must try that one day.
Thank you !

The film I used was FP4+, camera was my Canon 300V (cheapest Canon SLR of 4 years ago), lens was the 50mm f/1.8, aperture at f/4 or wider. I had the film developed at a lab, so don't know the developer he used. However, ahem, I did not print in a darkroom, because I don't have one. I instead scanned the negative, corrected for tone and contrast and printed on Moab Entrada Natural on an Epson 2100 using Imageprint. This is my standard practice at the moment and I am happy with the result and the look of the prints.
Oh, I should credit Michael Kenna for the original idea : http://www.michaelkenna.net/html/books/20yr2/27.html
