    Aron, I just noticed that you are not on my list! That makes the extra card a nice surprise. Thanks.

    Received a card from Aron. I like how the image is supported by the quote on the card. The symmetrical composition make for even a stronger "prison". It is indeed a mysterious image. Unfortunately the US Postal Service "did a job" on your card. I arrived creased in 3 places and ripped on the right side. I am impressed that a single weight paper survived a journey through the postal system so well. (Note: It looks like this paper has fogged. The boarders show tone.)

    Thanks for a thoughtful card.

    Regards,

    Stephen Frizza's card arrived today, magnificent! Makes me wish I could have that kind of processing in my little darkroom as the colour and detail is phenomenal.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    You can! Ilfochrome really isn't a hard process! Give it a go and help keep it alive!

    Thanks to everyone who sent me cards this round. Sorry I haven't had time to comment on them individually, suffice to say that everyone one of them is much appreciated.
    Thanks also for the kind comments on my card. I'd wanted to use this image for a while but had lost the negs (easily done with Minox negs ). Anyway I came across the negs while having a clear out. A couple of you have commented on the soft border, this was slightly serendipitous as I initially tried printing it 'full bleed' but the 6x4 postcard ratio meant that too much of the top and bottom of the 8x11 neg got chopped off and it lost too much detail and looked cramped. When I was re-focussing the enlarger with the smaller full frame image I realised that the soft borders gave it more of a 'time tunnel' look so I did away with a masking easel.

    I'm catching up on 3 weeks of travelling, and some great cards when I got home.
    In no particular order, thanks to

    Stephen Frizza: glowing colours, and beautifully presented. Being used to old European cathedrals, I find it quite strange to see modern, secular dress in a stained glass window. It's always good to have one's preconceptions challenged!
    KWhitmore: I like the curve of the hillside and shadows leading up to the sculpture. Thanks for the comment too, Katherine.
    Mark Rewald: There's always a comparison between the structure and simplicity of man-made objects and the complexity of nature, like the water flow and foam here.
    Lorifrommontana: That feels cold! I hope the move goes well.
    Wayne Frederick: Some rich textures. It's very peaceful, and you can only imagine what it looked like at the time ...
    djhopscotch: Wow, what a place. The IR really works here.
    Tim Gray: Shame that HIE is gone, but you're lucky (or well-organised!) to have a stash. Is it a double dam? - looks as if you're standing on one dam and shooting another.
    Valerie: You can't beat contact prints for detail and tonality. It's amazing how quickly nature takes over old buildings.
    Aron: The bars are preventing me from escaping up to the light. Very well done, and I also like the paper.

    Thanks all!

    I received Aron's "The mind is kept in it's own prison..." last week, and as some already said, I'm impressed by the very good condition of the card when it arrived, especially considering the rather large format for a post card, and the thin paper... The bars in the foreground make the atmosphere almost oppressive, I really like the image !

    I too like the aspect of the paper.

    Thanks Aron !
