    Well, not to hijack, but since Eugene posted it here, and if it is OK with you all, I would certainly like to take the reins of the BPX once again.
    Thank you.

    I know Eugene has needed to hand it off for awhile. I almost volunteered simply because he's such a nice guy, but I've recently had a run of unexpected time-consuming incidents of my own.

    If you're willing and he's agreeable, I think that would be a great idea.

    That great. Thank you Chris! I'm trying to manage an engineering team spread out across three very different time zones and it's getting rather overwhelming... Thank you very much! I really appreciate it.

    Then you are fairly out and I am fairly in. I will wait for the signup thread in January. Carry on.

    Hereby I like to preregister for the next BPX, please.

    I'm marked as "received & sent", so I can't wait for the next round. Especially with that great image I received from Ken as a motivation and a personal standard to achieve. I'm already thinking and planning my next print. Keywords for now are: large format, historical printing process (alt-photo), probably pinhole, ...
    I bought a great lens from Reinhold Schable that covers up to 24x30 inch negatives. It's a 790mm f:5.4 Wollaston Meniscus lens. Suitable for a "diffused pictorial lanscape style".
    I'm planning on building me a simple "point & shoot" camera body for this lens to make some very large (paper) negatives for contact printing with an old process like gum, bromoil, salt or carbon printing. Or use the direct positive paper from Ilford in camera. Should be great for the exchange. But I haven't started this project yet and I do have a time consuming job. If it doesn't get together for the next BPX-19, it should be doable for the BPX-20 at least (I hope).

    BTW: Christopher, if you need any help, let me know. I thought of setting up a separate European BPX (due to high shipping costs cross-Atlantic) but I'm not sure if there are enough participants in Europe. And it might also drain participants from this worldwide BPX.
    So - for now - I'll put the idea in the fridge ...

    Katie,

    Please see my post number 81. It is a very beautiful print you sent to me! Actually, I have a question about your toning technique. It us very unusual to bleach the print without subsequent toning. I like the look very much and would love to use it myself with an appropriate subject. I am however a bit concerned about the print longevity. From your experience, are the prints treated in such a way reasonably stable? Do I need to put some extra precaution when storing/displaying your print?

    Eugene.

    EDIT: Oh, I just realized that you are referring to the print you are supposed to receive. Pardon my slowness...
