    Thanks Ed, she doesn't really like that photo, but her husband is a bit nostalgic and that was the first picture he ever saw of her years ago - I sent him one as well!

    YES!!!!!
    I received a large box from Ken Nadvornick (USA).

    It was very well and securely packed (thank you). It came with a nice, long letter, explaining the techniques and all about where&how this image was made. It also included a true story about a policeman "... apologizing for even owning a digital camera and promising that he would look for his old 35 mm film camera and give it a try again ..." and my first intro to Roadhouse Blues by Jim Morrison.
    It's not just a picture, its a whole set of stories captured in a single image. A photograph is so much more .... when you know the story attached to it, don't you think?

    The print is called: Ashen Lady (hence Roadhouse Blues). Its a beautiful B&W print of a lighted roadside motel sign made with a 8x10 inch camera and contact printed.

    I'm gonna put this image on a easel for now to watch it regularly. I will post a PM to Ken with my feedback on the image in due time when it has really sunk in. Then I will frame the image (it came already mounted) and hang it in my simple darkroom&workspace (= attic above the garage).
    This is my first 8x10 inch contact print and it makes me even wanting more to get into this format as well. I have just ordered me my first box of 18x24 cm Fomapan sheet film to use in an old Russian FKD plate camera (= about 7.2x9.6 inch).

    Ken: thank you for a beautiful print and all the work and effort you have put into it. This is the first time I participated in a BPX and didn't know I would end up with such a fine print. It will be a standard for me to live up to in the next BPX I will participate in.
    BTW: Would you be so kind to post the image yourself in the BPX gallery (so it will be under your own name, not mine)?

    Sincerely,
    Bert from Holland

    I knew there was a reason I almost volunteered, then didn't.

    Wow. I've never received such an enthusiastic response! Usually I never even know if the package was ever received.

    I do tend to go overboard for these exchanges. It's a chance to do something where I don't have to cut corners all of the time. The difference between a hobby and a job.

    This was a fun picture to make, what with the police showing up, the landowner showing up (left that one out of the letter), pedestrians stopping to ask questions (also left that out), and eventually sitting in the dark for an hour while the stand development did its thing (need to buy an 8x10 paper safe to do that next time).

    Even more fun was that you enjoyed it so much!

    Thanks, Bert. I'll post the scan soon...



    Ken
