I second the other Mr. Thomas' comments. The non-reciprocation is even stranger, as just after WPPD, said individual mentioned having already made a quantity of prints. I hope that nothing horrible befell the guy, I mean, weird things do happen out in this big bad world.
And I certainly hope no one just turned chicken -- I mean, we're talking pinhole shots here -- no one is/should be expecting Ansel Adams' work!
There's a box here waiting to go to #3 -- all it needs is an address (and I really don't need a duplicate copy).
As my first participation in a print exchange, I was looking forward to a successful conclusion and do indeed feel rather disappointed.
Anyway, thanks Doyle for holding up your end!
I have been a total slug in regards to my exchange partners and their print from me. The darkroom I have (had) access to is at the MFA of Houston, Glassell School of Art and the class I was registered for this summer didn't make which means I won't have access until the end of August. The commercial B&W lab I have used for years has also recently closed. I would have preferred to print it myself, however will take it to another commercial lab to be printed . . . guess I could scan it and . . . no that would never do. Bill "El Sluggo" Barber
I sent my address out on 05-01-07, 08:19 PM to the other participants in my group. I received no response and felt sad
I gave up waiting to hear from my group last month and decided to enjoy my pinhole photos, by myself, with no companion pinhole photos.
I'll still use the pinhole camera - it was very liberating - but will probably not be in this exchange next year.
For Group 2 this is how we stand I think...
Bastiaan - I received from him, Sent to him
bdilgard - I received from him, Sent to him
crispinuk - I received from him, Sent to him
bsignorelli - Me
bshimmin - NO WORD FROM HIM
Very disappointing! I dutifully sent my prints to the others. Out of the three other members of my group only one has sent a print (actually two prints! Thanks again Pete). No contact by the other members other than sending their addresses. Similar to my experiences with the WTCD Print Exchange. I don't think I'll be doing any more of these print exchanges.

I'm really sorry this exchange isn't living up to the reputation of the other exchanges. On ToyCamera.com there is also an acute problem with their exchange too. So much so, they are looking for exchange angels - folks who are willing to send extra prints to those that got shafted. I think there's a similar problem at the f295 print exchange too. Seems like Toy Camera / Pinhole enthusiast are getting a bad rep and it's no wonder if this behaviour continues.
Those that have not received a print, can you send me a PM and I will send reminder PMs? Thanks.
Yes, I'm disappointed. I received noblebeast's print - very atmospheric and beautifully printed - thanks Joe - and that's it.
Compare that with the postcard exchange, which is working really well.
I still have a few prints from that day's shooting ready. If someone wants, I'm willing to send a couple to him/her. You can PM me (do it soon, I'm leaving on holiday in a few days).
I've got a couple I can send someone.
A beautiful platinum/palladium contact print has just arrived from Bill Barber (nsurit). Thanks Bill!
