    Well - I guess my postcards were in a mailbag that got shoved onto a plane pretty quickly. They should start to arrive in other parts of Canada and the US soon..... Thanks for the comments, all.

    Rachelle, ask for a care package with Red Rose tea in it, or at least try a few different brands. I tried and tried to tone with tea and kept getting MUD. I was using a cheap no name brand as I'd heard that cheap tea had more tannin. Then I did a test with a few different teas and Red Rose was the best of the ones I tried. It beat out the high-priced specialty teas and the no name brand and the one with Sanskrit on the box.

    Must admit, been sitting on sly's cards for a few days... The tea toned cyanotype came through the post without any of the usual barcodes or mangling.

    Mick Fagin's card also arrived several days ago - I like the pose and lighting of the subject.

    Wow !! I finally made it and got all my cards printed, addressed and stamped in two days ! The last weeks have been hectic since I had to print from THE event that happens this year in Chateauneuf (hope I'll be able to post some scnas later on) and a bad back did not help.

    Anyway, my cards will be in the mail today.

    I've been lazy, so there are no hand-written notes (excet for 3 or 4 cards) this time. Some of the labels are missing an important technical detail : the tripod was a Manfrotto #055

    All the best,
    Laurent

    Got the incredible cyanotype from Sly. First time I see that kind of photograph in real. Really impressed. This is something I would like to try when I will be more experienced (in 35 or 40 years)...

    I also got hmv windmill in movement. Thanks to Laurent, without him I am not sure I would have guessed the exact subject. Nicely print.

    Mines are exposed since last weekend, I was suppose to process them this week, but actually we are right in a major heatwave. My darkroom is in the basement, which is normally very cool, but actually at 8:00pm it is exactly 30 Celsius in the darkroom, so imagine spending a couple of hours in it. Today with the humidity, with had 45 at 14:00 in my area. So let's jump in the swimming pool... bye bye !!!

    Just finished printing all my cards. I have to buy postage so they will go out tomorrow afternoon. I have received 4 cards so far.

    1. From Steve Brown (BoxBrownie) - A cool shot of a bar with some interesting details

    2. From Alex Bishop Thorpe (Fleath) - A fibre print of a very symmetrical night scene at what seems like a bus station.

    3. Was Sly's amazing cyanotype. Mine was not abused by the post as well, great one.

    4. From Mick Fagan was a shot of a woman's head looking up, very interesting and fills the frame very well.

    I too received Sly's postcard yesterday - reminds me very much of some old ones my grandmother kept of the family from the early 20th C.

    Thank you, sly, for your wonderful postcard. I love the tones of this - so smooth and subtle! And the paper...

    Exactly what I thought. While looking at it, I can easily imagine my grandfather on it when he was young.

    I got Lillian's (Sly's) just today too, I dig the old-timey feel coupled with the graffiti. It looks very much like a tunnel I go through when I ride to university. Very successful tea-toning, and it survived the postal system just fine. Bloody lovely.
    I also got one from Darwin (drpsilver) - for a minute I thought it had incredibly large grain, but then I thought, no, it's a photograph of a rock surface :rolleyes: That's what rocks look like. I'm a bit slow sometimes. I really like the composition of this, it makes me think of the fossilised remains of some sort of bulbous flower. It's just nice to look at.

    Once again, my sincere thanks to everyone I've received a postcard from, it makes checking the mail much more exciting.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.
