From the archives. These are postcards that Christine would send me every now and then as I would send her some of mine. She considered herself a Mail Artist as she would travel to a far away place, create some images, mail them back to the PostMaster in that area and they would hand stamp them and then send them back to Christine. What fun!

I enjoy seeing your additions to this thread, be they current or be they archival. The postcard idea was a creative one from another era, but yes, fun to see. How we've changed in the ways we share!

the photo group called the Inner Light Society which is still alive today after 30 years.

Shedrich's work is beautiful. Thank you for adding this! S-

A new growth has appeared by my bed side. I keep cleaning it up and some how it keeps coming back. Camera Arts, Oct, 1981 issue. Glad I saved the entire set.

Lovely image, glad to see you have it in your collection. And I do love the way you share your collection with us!

I never see a Bullock image without wishing we had Jim Hill as a member here. He was Bullock's darkroom guy for several years, and a master photographer himself. I will check with him again. He told me in the spring that he'd try to join us if he got through his health crisis but he was quite ill.
