    Bob, you're quite the lyricist!

    wiseowl, I think you should start Round 3. If you check out this thread and the Round 1 thread you'll find a number of folks who missed out - and a number of us would take part if there are shots left over.

    Several suggestions have been made for the next round, mostly to make things go a bit faster. One was to limit the number to something like 12 and each get 2 shots. Another was to put a time limit on how long each person is to keep it, I'm not sure I'm in favor of that one - you can't enforce it and it seems like it would just cause arguements. The plastic box worked I think (thanks Bob F.), it's as light as cardboard but more durable so every other person didn't have find a new box, and it was lined with foam rubber so there's no bother in packing and unpacking. It would be fun if you could find a cheap old camera with adjustable shutter and aperture settings :0)

    Go for it. I had fun organizing this one, but next time I'd like to be just one of the stops on its route. Thanks to ggriffi for starting Round1 and to everyone who jumped on board, it's been a blast and I haven't even seen the photos yet!

    The camera is on its way to Oz... I just hope the Post Office have fed the carrier pigeons well.

    Just remembered...

    I noticed when I went to the Post Office to post the camera that there were new stamps available commemorating the England cricket team's victory for the first time in donkey's years over Australia in the recent Test series (The Ashes) - yes, I know, sad innit!. Anyway, two values are available: 30 pence (UK 1st class postage) and 68 pence... Odd, I thought, so I looked it up... guess how much it costs to send an airmail letter to Australia?... Nice to see someone at the Post Office has a sense of humour...

    Cheers, Bob.

    I was really disappointed that the stamps were not available when I posted my cards to Kevin and Nige for the postcard exchange Still at least there's my avatar of Freddie Flintoff. Sad I know, but after years and years of ribbing from Aussie friends I have to make the most of this!

    Cheers

    Needless to say, there are no commemorative stamps here. I'm sure that there must have been lot's preprinted, which were probably quietly spirited away and burnt to ashes in the middle of the night.

    Anyway, make the most of it, that's the last you'll see of that urn for a long long time :-)

    Anyway, does anyone have a preference for development? I have ID11, LC29 or Rodinal on hand. As the film is HP5 I'm tempted to use ID11 1+1, but I'm open to suggestions.

    I'll let the group know when the camera arrives, normally 5-10 business days from the U.K. I'll then hand deliver to GlennSYD if he's available to fill one of the empty frames, then shoot mine.

    ID11 sounds fine to me, but I'm not too rigid on that.

    I PM'd Sean about this a while back, here's his reply:

    "...I'm happy to create a gallery for it. Maybe a "Member Functions" gallery with sub galleries for the various things we do."

    That sounds good to me, especially as the Round1 photos can go in another sub-gallery along with this one. It would be a great place for other adventures. Perhaps we'll have one where all members take a photo at the same time, wherever they happen to be at that time, and post scans of the results.
