Yay! I recieved Kate's postcard today. It's really cool and confused me at first because it looks like lots of tiny photograms. Thank you for the kind words as well
You are very welcome Heather! I can't believe how fast that was!!
25 Sept 2008
I am glad that you liked my card, and thank you for the compliment. I really like you card. An interesting perspective of what looks like a gazebo made more interesting by the IR effects. It must have been interesting to wonder around "Little Mexico" during a festival.
It was a blast! Downtown L.A. is a great place to wander around. It was also made weirder by the fact that I had the flu and was actually quite fevered. I didn't want my being sick to ruin my special day out to photograph. I tried not to pass out on a downtown street corner.
Two more received since my last post, but still missing seven out of thirty (actually, thirty-one, but that's not according to Ruediger's program), a bit sad, to be honest; I've commited again to send 30 in the next round, but 7 missing out of 30 is not a good score.
I'd like to blame one or another postal service, but to be honest, I can't be sure. Don't want to name-and-possibly-shame, but... I'm tempted.
It would be so good if we could get an overview of who has and who hasn't yet sent their postcards.
Anyhow... I received Bob F.'s Beach shot; I'm guessing mine is on Ilford paper (IIRC there were toned ones and significantly less toned ones; mine falls in the latter category). Lively action shot, thanks.
And I received, outside of the list of 30 as compiled by rst's program, yet another beautiful card from Kate. Still using whatever is left of your HIE, I suppose? It's a beauty! Overwhelmed me, gave me a good feeling in troubled times. Thanks, Kate.
I guess it's now time to scan my round #14 postcard and show it in the appropriate gallery. I will do that (but don't hold your breath).
It's been an interesting round, but, as said, I hope it's not over yet, seven more to come?!?!

Thanks Kate for a very interesting contact print of antique glass buttons. It provoked me to think first, and then I read capture of course this are glass buttons
Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.
Received Kates card last Saturday. Thanks for the nice words. I liked the idea of the contact sheet, and the immediate reaction was: Which one would I have printed larger...
