Hi to all. I'm still working on the project I set myself for this exchange, so cards may be delayed longer than I anticipated.
Fear not! They will be sent out just a little later than I would have liked.
Just received TimVermont's card this morning. I really love the look, I was not sure if I could call it a silhouette, finally my wife found the right name, she called it "a silhouette with details". The sky is also amazing, the toning fit it very well. I specially appreciated the note at the back
- Note to self: Next time processing a film, take notice of the shape of the beer bottle and the shape of the fixer bottle, and note the differences. -
The card from rtbadman appeals to the chemical engineer in me. Nice composition of converging lines and parallel lines. Well printed and sharp (which is way I also like 4x5).
The card from rmann is simple but elegant. Well done. Nice balance of exposure inside vs. outside. I like seeing tone in the widow highlights.
Lastly, the card from bwakel is outstanding. I love how the yellow/brown tone accents the bright sun. Even thought the post office succeeded in keeping some of the emulsion, the image draws me into the snowy forest.
Since my last update I have received cards from the following:
David James Lee (djl): Snowed down bicycle in NYC.
David Verhasselt: Cat watching bird.
Darwin (drpsilver): Old Woman Road.
Barry (Bwakel): Winter landscape
Tim Trapp (TimVermont): Windmill + Water Tanks
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Mick's silos are my favourite so far-thanks to everyone else as well
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
To those that have sent such wonderful cards from so far, my thanks. Mine went into to post today, I hope you enjoy it. Info is on the card, a little piece of Australiana, but it could be anywhere I guess. Near the famous wine district of Clare Valley South Australia, it is an old crop seeder. The images I have received from around the world are truly magnificent and I enjoy every trip to the post box to see what portal of escape has arrived today. Thanks again. Regards, Mark
