    No, it has not. My family put it in a stack of bills and other letters and did not tell me about it. I just stumbled upon it. Sorry about making you worry so much!

    It is a very beautiful print of Grand Tetons! I love the threatening look of clouds in the sky. Your unique method of toning gives the print very unusual look. The slight yellow-pinkish tones split with just hint of blue in shadows. I've never seen anything like that. When I used blue toner, it gave a very bright blue tones. Not in your print. Do you use a very diluted blue toner? Fantastic print, I love it! Thank you very much!

    Bravo Anikin!

    I received Friday your portrait of a Korean Royal guard-not-to-be-messed-with. A truly impressive size, I can't imagine your creating this in what you're calling a "small" darkroom. Bully! I think it's grand.

    I'm now in the Sent-and-Received group.

    Thank you Bob for your update. We are progressing quite nicely!

    Thank you Reed for your kind words. My darkroom is rather small. It is a space in our garage between the front bumper of my car and the shelves attached to the wall. When I'm printing anything bigger than 11x14, I end up with a bit less than 1ftx3ft walking area between the enlarger table and the table holding JOBO. I can only move sideways in there The hood of the car serves as a temporary shelf for unexposed paper.

    I did not upload my photo to the gallery because I'm afraid it's inappropriate to this site. I used the best print holder I could find to take a snap of the print. The photo was taken before it was trimmed to size.

    I just come back from the post office where I left my print.

    Too, I received Mike (mjs) nice picture last week.

    Take care.

    I'm sleeping in the mailbox now in full anticipation of the mailman with the BPX print sent to me by an yet unknown APUG member and to pass the time I bought myself a bottle of Redbreast Irish Whiskey (pot still 12 years old) and a large, beautiful book today about Edward Steichen's work:

    Edward Steichen: Lives in Photography, by Todd Brandow & William A. Ewing, hardcover. It's large, thick and has beautiful reproductions (338 pages, 250 large images). It was new from $100 for $35.

    I want to learn more about "Pictorialism" and the works from that time. Intriguing period & photographers. I recently also got me this book:

    TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art, 1845 - 1945 - by Alison Nordstrom (recommended reading)

    Mine was sent this past weekend. Apology note for lateness was enclosed.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    I've received my print (a couple of days ago), 'Natural Graffiti/Leaf Will' . A wonderful shot, it somewhat reminds me of my current work, insofar as it looks downward (camera pointed toward the ground), and i've been doing a lot of that.

    Received an absolutely lovely print from Kevin today. I'm very grateful that he's overcome his recent string of illnesses and felt well enough to make this gorgeous print for me. Thanks, Kevin!
