    Well my cards are printed, must be so kind of record for me. Of course I still have to get the cards addreseses and in the mail. Also I might tone the prints, so I still might be late.

    As I wrote in the Sign-on thread, my cards are ready and sent out. I hope you enjoy them.

    A little was bit too fast, I guess. I got a slight adress change from Rachelle Meilleur. Dear Rachelle, if you dont receive the card in two or three weeks, please mail me. I'll sent out an other card.

    Negative chosen, 16 postcards printed so far... 1/3 of the way to the MAX I guess! Am printing 4 at a time now so shouldn't take too much longer if I can get back down to the darkroom again today.

    Still need to do the mailing labels however and check how many stamps I have. Canada may have a postal strike, just 'rolling' so far so I hope to get them in the mail soon before there is a full blown strike :-(

    4 at a time seems slow. Once I got my exposure and contrast dailed in I exposed 50 sheets then processed in batches of 10. About halfway through I processed 1 sheet just to make sure everything was still good. This round I printed on RC paper which also saved a lot of time, so much so that I think I'll tone the prints.

    If I even try 5 at a time it seems I end up with 2 stuck together at least partially in the developer and then instead of 4 good prints I have 3 good ones and two ruined ones So while 4 at a time is slow it is better than wasting paper. I don't usually do more than one at a time so unfortunately my shuffling technique is not very good; the postcard exchange is the only time I print this many of the same negative. This is especially tough with a #13 safelight, very hard to see.

    33 done (not including rejects ), 14 to go (44 plus 3 extras) though I will probably print 16 more and hopefully get at least 14 more good ones out of them.

    I find my dodging technique also somehow gets worse when I do more than one at a time. I guess I become impatient/bored but I want to finish this up soon as I don't want to change the framing/cropping of my shot if possible.

    Uwe, I think it'll be alright -- I'm the only foreigner living in this neighbourhood so if they can't figure out the card is for me, then this isn't the Japan that I know. I'll definitely let you know either way though!

    Like Tom Cruise in 'The Last Samurai'...
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
