    Got mine from Banana and Bethe yesterday. Both very good and highly interesting. Thanks!

    Of note, both of these, plus Scott's 4x5, made it through the postal systems without any "wrong size" zingers or anything else. I think this is interesting, especially since Banana's originated in Canada. Seems to be some inconsistencies in verbatim compliance with regulations amongst the various US Post Offices. But I sure as heck ain't gonna bring it to anyone's official attention.

    I have recieved 6 so far (all but Dianna's in the last 2 days) from Dianna, John, Scott, Alex, Bethe and unknown? (stone lion). Its great to see them and thanks to all of you. I am looking forward to the last 4.

    Dianna's, John's, Scott's and Alex' all came as sent and without any post office "reminders"

    Bethe's came in a USPS supplied window envelope with the back having an "apology" from the plant manager for being "damaged" in handling by the post office! There is no damage to the print so ...

    The stone lion was taped to a card by USPS with a "postage due" stamp and the back indicating that it did not meet minimum size so was being returned to sender to be "fixed". Maybe since there was only my address they figured I was the sender? Anyway, stamp is not cancelled - anyone need a 39 cent stamp?

    the 1st two attachments are Bethe's envelope and the 3rd from the stone lion

    oh yeah, mine will be late

    I tried shooting last weekend but have blown the remainder of an old pack of type 669 and the best part of the new one without getting one decent shot. It has been a comedy of operator errors with gummed up junk on the rollers (haven't used the back in 4 years) and pulling tabs incorrectly. (see attachment) I even managed to get a previous shot to come out of the rollers when I pulled the tab for the current shot (a day apart!) It was like the photo went into a time warp and came out late and ruined.

    I thought I would have to order another pack from Freestyle and wait for delivery but yesterday found some out of date Fuji in a clearout at a local store - I tried a test tonight and finally success (the Fuji is a lot flatter than the curly Polaroid)

    I will finish these this weekend and get them in the mail. Not sure if I will try them all as is or tape some to official size cards - I sent one of my duds to myself this week in a test but it has not arrived yet.

    thanks in advance for your patience with me

    Martin-

    I'm guilty of the stone lion. Glad I didn't put a return on mine - it looks like they'd all have come back.

    My little series are finally going out this weekend. They are a little smaller, photographed with the blad on Polaroid 669 which was way out of date! I like the results. Do we have anywhere we can post these? I'm adding here a sample of the series for you.

    Hi Folks,

    4 prints this week:
    • A 4x5 image of a lens that I presume is from Scott by the postmark
    • Cattails by Alex
    • An interesting image of a butterfly on a finger from Texas which by process of elimination is Alex's
    • And John's flower
    Thanks!

    I took my images last weekend and sent my prints out yesterday. Used my Polaroid Job Pro and not the Instax - not enough film! Errr ...

    Regards, Art.

    Received Scott's yesterday. I'm really enjoying finding something other than junk mail and bills in the mailbox!

    I still don't have prints from Art, Nicole, Martin or Pete (I think).
