Fleath's card came today ,Cool night scene.
The first of (hopefully) many arrived today - A numbered, limited edition card from fleath that brings back many memories of waiting at airports for shuttles.
Numbered, limited edition?
I re-read Fleath's card, checked the name and abbreviated name, didn't see anything, then in the bottom right corner this:- 58/70.
So when he's rich and well known, perhaps I can on-sell one of his original prints for a small fortune. This will allow me to pay my way into a retirement home, maybe!
Funnily enough I logged onto the gallery the day I received Fleath's print, down the bottom under the random section was the postcard print I had received about an hour previously. Interesting to see, I left a comment and noted that the print had been online for over a year and had attracted no or little comment.
Nice print Fleath!
Received Clamming At Sunset by Mike C, looks just as good upside down, which is how I and my work colleague, first viewed it. Peaceful.
Prague Street Sweeper from Dave Martiny, quite an impact, especially as he is surrounded by cigarette butts on the ground.
Laurent, I purposefully enlarged the negative until the image started to noticeably soften, then cropped. In a small version it is quite sharp and of a higher contrast, I wished for the opposite effect.
Mick,it does look ok upside down,I accidentally printed them with the neg flipped upside down also did not know tell all 25 were printed.
Hi guys please forgive me if my cards arrive to you a little behind schedule I am printing Ilfochrome post cards and am very busy on other photographic projects at the moment but i promise they are coming!...

Phew! Printed all mine yesterday - 54 of them and a bit of a photographic boot camp - in fact a crash course in printing as I only got my enlarger a few weeks ago and this is only the second negative I've printed!
I've received some cards in the last week, all interesting and very welcome with Paul's 'Weybourne Signal Box' being my current favourite.
It's really fascinating seeing all the different approaches to photography, really worthwhile.
Yep, Morphett Street Bridge - we'd been at the Worldsend pub just up on Hindley and wandered down. The trams are brilliant for us at the City West UniSA campus, makes it easy to pop down to the central markets for lunch...

Thank you everyone for the kind comments, and I'm sorry if the editioning in the bottom right is a bit weird, it's just a carryover convention from being a printmaker...and I was kinda proud I got 70 prints done.
I got a couple more in the mail today! I'm determined to post a personal comment for every one I get.
Paul's (paul_c5x4) signal box photo. I've never seen a pyro neg up close, nor, I think, a lovely pyro print - I'm quite impressed. I admit I didn't even notice it was a 4x5" neg until I looked closer - ahh those lovely framelines. Very nicely printed and a very good size. And, of course, a great photo. My first card from the UK.
Dave Martin's very well composed street sweeper photo. I like how this is printed too, the wider white border on the left is oddly nice. I like the lines of it all, and the bristles of his broom.
Mike's (mike c) photograph of clamming at sunset. Lovely photo, the more I look at it the more I like it. I like the landmass stretching out in the background, reminds me of the beach I grew up near. The sand's nearly silky.
This exchange is off to a good start -- two more in the mail today!
Nanette's coffee cup action works on many levels -- the angle, the chrome, the splash itself -- I really like this one.
Fleath's "Chantal at tram stop" -- I like the symmetry of this night scene, and I love the texture of this paper, although it'll never stay flat in the humidity we have here in Japan!
