Kodak and Ilford even if we're not using either of their products? I'll feel slightly bad sullying Simon's postcard board so he can't say it's all done on ilford postcard paper (then again, when I visited there was a cyanotype there too so it'd not be the first...)
Actually Simon should have two cyanotypes on Stonehenge paper, two Polaroid transfers on Arches paper, two colour prints on Kodak paper and one instant print on Fuji paper at least since I have been participating in this exchange and sending him postcards.

A bunch of my prints for this round were printed on Ilfobrom that expired in 1971. I suspect Simon Galley might not have been too active in Ilford when that paper was made, but of course I'll send him the print.
Not to knock the present Ilford system, but I knew the expiry date because there was a little price sticker like label that said 'expired sept 1971' on the package. Ah, the good old days. Not like today when we look for patterns in scattered chicken bones tossed onto the box to figure out when your current paper stock is due to expire.
And Mary Jane gets one too, because my card this round is a goodbye send eulogy to HIE.
And Randy stays in the loop for getting this exchange happening to the level it has built to today.
Thanks Mike for reminding me about my beloved HIE!!! I think maybe I will choose an infrared image for this round. I call this year, "The Year Of Infrared", as it's our last gasp at the stuff. Luckily I managed to buy what I could find back east thanks to Art!
Big Thanks to Ruediger for keeping the exchange going!!!
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Think I might too.....think I have some 5x4 Kodak IR negs luring somewhere!
