Mike Wilde: in fact there are three photos. Image 2 is my favorite of them. The toned paper suits well the quite idyllic scene. semeuse: a timeless scene, cross processed. Reminds me of the posters at the cinema in my village when I was young, advertising new technicolor movies. Dave Martiny: circles and lines, ending far outside the picture. I like the graphical design. J Rollinger: dadaistically, "what you see is what you get" crosses my mind. Static tripod, dynamic cat... Very well printed, I love it!
That's it for this week. I'm looking forward for the next postcards.
Only two cards managed to arrive before the postal system shut down. Mike Wilde's package. I really like #2 the spring day walk. A classic, well framed image on lovely paper. In some ways it make me very sad, my favorite walks are behind me thanks to arthritic knees, but also all the types and textures of paper we have lost over the years. piu58's Canoo trip also arrived as well. I think IR and lake shore lines were made for each other. The history of the site just adds much more.
My cards are printed, they need addresses and Canada Post to come back ti life. Hopefully by the end of the week they''ll be one the way.
Dave's card "untitled" arrived on Friday. Very nice shot of what I first thought were very long springs. Upon closer inspection they became plastic drain pipe. The original orientation is my favorite. I would love to see this printed on gloss fiber and a little bigger. Maybe we could we could do a trade, I have a low key shot you might like.
I received J Rollinger's Pinky & I thsi week. Very intriguing picture, lovoely printed.... I displayed it with the camera in the "right" direction until my wife noticed it was an horizontal shot. It works better horizontally, but it's a bit less puzzling

Thoe who don't read have no advantage over those who can't.
Fourth card in yesterday from Dave Martiny. I like the perspective and narrow border. Even though Dave you indicate actual orientation, I have this picture on the fridge and the family is always playing with the orientation. It seems to look great any which way. I too think this would be a brilliant photo blown up on gloss :-)
