    Always looking forward to another round! Not sure when I’ll get into the darkroom though - October looks to be a really busy month for me.

    I've posted out the first half dozen, I may send out some more colour ones , sadly a roll I shot at Calton Hill in Edinburgh got left behind at my parents' house ( I was really looking forward to seeing what was on that!).

    Black Dog, your postcard arrived this afternoon (Thursday). You've captured a lovely texture in the tree bark in addition to the interesting engraving, which makes me wonder just how old some of those other markings might be. Thanks!

    Thanks for appreciating it-there are some other carvings from 1949.

    Received the first card of this round - 1944 (The carved tree) by Black Dog.
    At first sight it looks like a photograph of a rock-painting and then tree bark can be recognized.
    Interesting and unusual subject.
    Thanks!

    Last week I posted first batch of my cards:smile:

    Thanks Mr Dog, yours arrived the other day. Great picture of the old tree baring scars of others identities.
    Must get mine moving, they have been sitting in the draw for about a month. I'm a bit disillusioned with the postal service after sending 6 postcards to my daughter in Germany and her only receiving two. Hope they have a better postal service in Ireland when she moves there for awhile next month.

    Thanks for the above comments-I 'm inspired by the paintings of Cy Twombly, Franz Kline and others as well as the likes of Harry Callahan and Ray K Metzker.

    Black Dog. I may have mentioned this before, but I have just tried looking at your web-page using the link in your info bit on here, and it takes me nowhere.... :sad:

    Any chance of updating it = if you still have a web-page of course. :smile:

    I've got Black Dog's "Shades of winter", like a first taste of the cold season. Very simple but effective landscape, thanks !

    Hello, I don't currently have a web page, though I did used to have some work on the site of a group called IPSE.

    Thanks-I love the winter landscape;it was about -30 C that day with the wind chill!

    Received the first card from Black Dog, "Shades of winter", lovely winter landscape arriving at the right moment, first week of snow. I have started my printing session, test prints made yesterday and production starts tonight.

    I too have received Black Dog's "Shades of Winter #1".
    Brrr!
    Great Card.
    I also always like trying to discern the meaning of the ghostly pencil notations on the back of Jake's cards. I'm rarely successful :smile:.

    Ah, that's technical stuff (widgetery?) from when I was printing them:wink:. IIRC I used Ilford Cooltone FB for this image, developed in Beer's VC developer and Selenium toned. I'm probably going to use Seagull for the final version , though the Cooltone will probably replace it when I run out. Usually my cards are printed on Galerie or Seagull if FB. I did actually go as far as printing out some labels once! Btw, I heard a good joke once about the definition of Absolute Zero once-it's when Canadians think about putting on coats:laugh:.

    My cards are in the hands of, respectively, the Canadian and United States postal authorities (depending on destination).
    The title this time is "Overlooked". Hope you like them.

    My cards are on the drying racks after the "day of atonement" this afternoon. I hope to have them at the post office on Monday or Tuesday.

    Regards,

    I made a mistake on the label for my cards and my wife noticed the error only after I had labeled all my cards. So I had to "double label" them. Because of this my label trimming job this round is a little "rough around the edges". I hope you like the image. My cards will be in the Tuesday post (Monday is a holiday in the US).

    Regards,
    Darwin
