    Hi all! I have sure enjoyed the postcards I have received. I just want to say that if you should have gotten a card from me and did not let me know. I would hope that they all should have reached their destinations by now! I have 15 or so postcard papers left and can make another run if needed to replace those lost or damaged. Just let me know! Lori

    Two more cards arrived today:
    A wonderful IR shot from one of Wolfgang Moersch's walks with the dog - it has a beautiful finish and I like the negative space in the dark parts of the sky.
    Great tones in Black Dog's still life and a pleasing hint of warmth from the selenium toner.

    Thanks!

    Pete

    White Door,Hurley barn by Rmann-love this kind of subtle surreal detail!

    Sacre Coeur by Mooseontheloose-nice to see a very different take on a much photographed landmark.

    Glasses by Pete H-Dreamlike abstraction enhanced by the unsharp sharpness of the pinhole.

    Odd Fellows Cemetery by Christopher A Walrath-Sombre and moody with the gravestone and trees gradually growing together.

    Walkway by Mattking-Reminiscent of an Andy Goldsworthy or Richard Long sculpture.

    Apple Blosoms by Lorifrommontana-pleasingly subtle bokeh.

    Thanks!

    I gotDarwin's card as well. My first one in two weeks. I love the use of tone in this one. From the shadows in the rocks to the grain in the wood. It's a great shot. Thank you very much, Darwin. I love it.
    Thank you.

    Mailed mine out today, and got ozphoto's postcard to boot, another HIE postcard - a very familiar scene to me and a brilliant photo.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Two more in the post. Wolfgang Moersch's IR Holga shot - I've tried the Adox IR820 film and didn't get anything as good as this.

    Darwin (a.k.a. drpsilver) "Portal, Bodie" - Got a bit chewed by the postal system and kinda makes me curious as to where in Bodie this was taken.

    Mike, Lori, Chis, and Paul:

    I am glad you like the card. It was a challenge to get this image because I was working "in between raindrops".

    Bodie is just north of Mono Lake on the east side of the Sierra in California. In the late 1800's it was the most populous town in CA. Why? It sat on one of the richest veins of gold found in the "Mother Lode". Alas after about 20 or 30 years is became a ghost town, and now a State Park. The striking thing about Bodie is how well preserved it is. Being located at at 8000 feet elevation and in a very dry environment is the primary reason (little water => little rot). This photograph was made in north part of Bodie near the jail and "Chinese section" of town.

    It is a really neat place to photograph.

    Regards,
    Darwin

    Having been there twice in recent years, I would agree up to a point - It is best to get there "out of season" and early in order to avoid the tourists. Friends of Bodie arrange one Saturday each month where you can get in before sun up and stay till dark without getting a $300 ticket - This (I think) has to be booked in advance, details here.

    If only we were allowed to shoot the itinerants lolling around in the background
