    I received a post card from VALERIE today. It is Stunningly crisp! What a shame the building is being demolished. If the post card is anything to judge by you have certainly done this building justice in documenting it before its destruction. Thanks for the post card, Like always your work is impeccable.

    I’ve previously commented on 20 cards received from other APUGers. Another one came in late last week:

    Tim Gray - “Sutton Dam” - Another very fine example of the quality and character of HIE - a film that I have never used, and never really started appreciating until I began to participate in APUG exchanges. I wouldn’t have thought to use IR film for a scene like this Tim - I’m glad you did! It is also very well printed.

    21 down, 7 to go!

    Thanks to everyone for participating.

    Last week, I received Stephen Frizza's Ilfochrome postcard. In one word: stunning. Great detail, sharp, well chosen subject, and a very good print. This made me realise once more how much I like the look of Ilfochrome. If I only had more room, I would buy a 2nd-hand tabletop Cibachrome processor. But even if I don't, I'm going to give Ilfochrome another try soon. Thanks a bunch, Steve!

    I received Valerie's Peden Iron & Steel Warehouse yesterday. Very nice contact of a 4x5 negative, I like contacts ! The perspective is nice, as well as the feeling of dereliction from the old building. Thanks Valerie !

    Two cards came in over the past two weeks.

    Valerie's photo of Peden Iron & Steel is nicely done. Very sharp and well composed. You did a great job documenting the building. Sad that it will be demolished. Did you get a chance to photograph inside? That would have been really cool!

    The Ilfochrome form Stephen Frizza is stunning. I have not seen a print so vibrant in a very long time. (Probably since the only lab around the did Ilfochrome "went under" 10 years ago.) I also love in inscription. Very well done! I wish you lived closer so I could have you print my transparencies.

    Regards,

    Maybe for those who are still guessing what's shown this hint is useful.

    More postcards - it's slowed to a few a week now.

    Valerie's Peden Iron and Steel Warehouse - I always appreciate 4x5" contact prints in these exchanges, just for the commitment to print a bunch of them. Urban wasteland/urban decay is kind of a classic theme in black and white photography today, but not usually this well executed. A lovely crisp image with a creat deal of depth, and really wonderful composition. I like the windows best.

    Tim Gray's Sutton Dam - I actually received this last week and put it aside until I had a few more to comment on, so it's been sitting on my dresser for a few days and I've found myself looking at it pretty much every morning. I've got some HIE in the freezer (Many thanks to Stephen for that one) and this is a really fantastic example of what the film is best at - lovely everyday scenes that could do with a dose of the mysterious. Brilliant glow in the highlights, but a really subtle effect overall. Abrupt Infrared effects are kind of old hat, and rarely well executed (myself included, heh...), but this is really quite a delicate scene. I really dig it.

    Aron, "The mind is kept in it's own prison..." - First of all, I'm impressed that this made it to me in such fine condition, considering how thin the paper seems to be. I never experienced the Forte papers, but it has a really lovely finish. A myserious photograph! I like the spiral wrapped around the poles, out of focus, in the foreground. A simple but really intriguing composition...it makes me a little uncomfortable, the more you look at it the more you get a creeping trapped feeling. A great example of how you can do a lot with a little, a good lesson for any of us.

    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Aron, your card arrived in the mail for me today too. Like Fleath, I'm impressed that it made it (with a few creases to be sure, but nothing serious) all the way to Japan, considering how thin the paper is! I like the ambiguity of the subject, and that blurred pole in the center seems to be hiding something menacing behind it. I don't know if I could make it to the top of the stairs. ;-) Thanks.
