Yep, we kind of get screwed no matter how you look at it. When I first got interested in traditional photography I was at my parent's, which is quite rural (towards Victor Harbor), so the best option was mail order. To make ordering from Freestyle viable, you have to order a few hundred dollars worth of stuff at any one time - $60-$100 is about the range with their shipping price. It's not so bad if you're ordering $400 of stuff, but it's still a painful amount to pay.

It seems that my address correction PM caused some confusion. Just to be clear: If you do not have Katherine on your list, just forget about the PM.
Maybe give Graphic Arts Supplies a call - they stock Ilford chemicals and paper and are just up from L&P (Total Photo) in Kent Town
Cheryl or Ann will be able to help you out - may even be able to get it in for you. Tell them I suggested you give them a call.

My first card arrived today!
Thank you Peter H, a very interesting pinhole image. (I wont say anthing else, dont want to spoil the suprise for others) Its reminded me that i havent used my Zeroimage pinhole camera for ages, will have to have a play in the house with it today, too wet to take it outside.
I have to get in the darkroom to start my cards. Still need to pick an image to print!
First card arrived today from Pete H. Nice shot of waterfalls in Betws y Coed, Wales. Lovely area - we were there over New Year and the temperature never raised above -2C meaning hoar frosts, snow and ice, it was quite beautiful. Thanks for the card.
Mine are done and now have the labels applied so hopefully they'll be in the post on Monday.
Cheers Nanette. I will do

A nice pinhole photo. So it seems as Pete H sending out different cards this time.
Tanks Pete. :-)
I' m planning to print mine to morrow, but it will still take some time until it arrives out there.
I just received my first 2 cards. One from Chris Walrath (awesome cemetary shot) and one from Matt King (Walkway through the trees - nice). They are both great! Matt's got a bit eaten by the mail machines but I guess that is part of being a post card. I will have to go get my photo pages to put them into. What fun!!! Can't wait to see everyone's chosen prints!
