Peter S's card arrived today. The two images work together very well. Intriguing.
This round is moving fast! I've got 6 more. Buster 6x6's Barn Find, Lovely print of some cool old stuff. I wonder what that box in the center is, the one with the bell and coil of wire. Peter S'sdouble exposure, Very nice, I love the ghost window right in the middle of the road. Warren's driftwood, great tonal scale, reminds me of a Minor White image. Hal's picture from Berlin of the Kaufhaus Jonass. Really beautiful image and a very interesting story, very much in my line of interest. I can't quite imagine what a "luxury artists hotel" is, but it sounds like the luxury artists lofts they are trying to sell here, not many artists to be found actually buying one. Great stuff. And two more: Ozphoto's shot of Ayuttaha in Thailand. What an amazing place that must be and shooting it with and old Kodak makes the image look like a postcard from 1920, really cool. Finally there is Door to MySpace, but I don't know who shot it. I can totally relate to this picture, as I bet a lot of us here can. I can imagine putting on that apron, closing the door, putting on the music, inhaling the fixer... makes me want to go there now. I'll get my cards out soon. Thanks for the great images.

Buster 6x6's card arrived today. Love the textures and feel of all those old bits and pieces - reminds me of quite a few farms here in Australia! My sister would love to get her hands on that oversize milk can. Yes erik, Ayuttaha is a really magical place. One of the truly wonderful places I've had the pleasure of visiting. Looking forward to going back and spending some more time there capturing the fantastic temples and palace remains soon.
Black Dog's card came yesterday. Today I got a picture of a darkroom, postmarked SF, CA but I don't know who sent it, I think the initials say D..F?
This is my first exchange and I am loving it! It's so great to get a card every day and to see what everyone is up to.
So far I've recv'd:
Warren's driftwood...great tones.
Peter's dbl exposure...very cool, I've never tried that before although my RZ allows for it easily.
Ozphoto's Thailand shot...great, and love the fact that it's shot with an old Kodak folder!
The darkrrom image...which must be from Darwin Poulos, considering the SF postmark.
Mark Fisher's "Zipper" carny ride at night...my family loves this one, striking image with great contrast, superb angle of view!
Buster's barn flotsam...really nice tones here, beautiful work.
I also love the fact that you can hold in your hand an example of various developers and papers, for that matter...
Mine went out today...it's been so much fun and very good darkroom discipline for this relatively new printer. Looking forward to participating again...

Three more came in today.
1."Door to MySpace" Which I don't know whom it came from looks like "WP"?
Very nice tonal values and reminds me on my own "Space"
2 .Warren Hinder's Drift wood on the rock. Nice detail and exposed great.It would have been nice to know what camera, film, a developer for film and paper have you used?
3 .Peter Schrager Double exposure. I love the combination Acros and Rodinal. Well done. It looks so surreal.
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
Well mine have been posted and I await more postcards.
I have received some already, the first one being from Oz, which was Warren's, that was a surprise.
The other surprise was receiving another one from Oz, Ozphoto. Her surprise was not the 620 camera that took the photo, but the technique with which she has printed onto the back of the print, with what looks like a LASER printer, quite neat.
Buster has sent an interesting picture of an array of of garage sale goodies.
Hal from Berlin must have gotten up really early to take a picture in Berlin without too many people and only one car in the picture. If the building is being turned into a luxury artists hotel, I have to ponder the type of society that has rich artists, I didn't think that happened anywhere in the world?
This is the biggest round for me so far, having sent out 53 postcards, with 51 going to round members.
Regarding my driftwood and Granite image

Dietmar, you indicate that you are in the photo, but I cannot see where you are ...
Must be a translation problem. I am not in the photo Btw. got your "light of the darkroom print". I like it!
