"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 '.
Prints are done and drying as I type. I hope to get them to the post today before last call but more than likely they will go in first thing in the morning. Hope all enjoy the efforts.
Thanks FredW for another great print. Have to start requesting you in my group I suppose.
Thank you for the kind words, Monty. I am also looking forward to receiving your print also. It has been great seeing how others see in the medium. There are very few Platinum/Palladium printers in Calgary, and I introduced some of them to the process. I have found that everybody develops their own way of seeing in the process, and its quite invigourating.
Got back from my hols to find a very nice set of cyanotypes from Heather. Many thanks. If you need any info on UK sources for mounting/mats etc, PM me.
Also, I'm glad Heather and Diane received their prints in one piece. Phill: I hope you're feeling better. I too suffer from a shot back and know how debilitating it can be. You want to get yourself a nice small digicam, or better still, use the one in your phone :-). Did you get your print, BTW?
I got home from work, and found that John's and Anke's prints in my mailbox. Thank you for the wonderful prints.
Anke: I loved the depth and details in the print, and the brush strokes just add to the composition. It's a technique I also use on occasion. Interesting, just looked up the Argyrotype process, and may have found out that clearing my VDB's in chlorinated tap water may be causing the colour which I do not like. I am also interested in your technique for generating the enlarged negative, I had used in the past, but a two step process, a intermediate film positive, then onto the final negative. Thank you.
John: I loved the feeling of enveloping light on your print, and the great tonal range. It has also motivated me to explore the urban landscape more, we are often distracted in Calgary by the proximity of the mountains, and provincial parks, that we often overlook what we see everyday. Thank you.
did anyone of you get my prints? It's close to two weeks since I mailed them.
Getting worried here...
Yes I have your print - and I apologise for the delay in acknowledging you! Henning has created a wonderful image from a pinhole camera and use the gum over process to ceate an inspirational image. Many thanks indeed!
