    Wet or web feet?, both abound in Norfolk

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.

    Hi Gene,

    The company I work for has an office in Amherst, MA and I've been out there a couple of times. It's similar countryside to around here, although you tend to have a bit more snow than us!

    Mike - If you are ever out here again, drop me a line. Maybe we can take a trip to the Quabbin for some phototgraphy.

    Welcome Mike!!
    Well, I only have a wee bit of advice for you....don't wait! Join one of the print/postcard exchanges! There's one just starting called a 'blind exchange' and there is a postcard one that is ending its current cycle and will start again in February. There's also a regular Print exchange. You can read about all of them in the various threads. Well, now...I feel like the "Cruise Director"! haha
    Welcome aboard!

    Gene,

    Thanks for the offer. No plans to go out there at the moment -- my role at work has changed over the last couple of years which makes it unlikely that I'll make it out there again -- at least on company expenses!

    Thanks for the welcome. I'd like to join one of the groups -- I've just purchased a couple of boxes of Ilford postcard paper in preparation!

    I don't think my work would be up to scratch for the print exchange, I've only just got back into photography after a 15 year layoff, due to kids and work. Also, I've only just started experimenting with fibre paper, most of my stuff is done on 10x8 or 9.5x12 RC paper. I've brought some spotting pens but I wouldn't know how to go about mounting and finishing fibre paper. However, it would be really interesting to see some other people's work so I can see how far I've got to go!

    Cheers

    Mike

    That's a perfect reason to join a print exchange!

    I'll let you in on a little secret: I don't mount, and don't know how to do it. I very rarely spot either, I'll only do that if it's too glaringly obvious that I should. So I'm not very good at that either

    Thanks for that Ole, that's really encouraging, maybe I'll have a go after all.
