Thanks Derek, they arrived a couple of days ago. I'll scan one of yours and David Hall's when I can.

My wife has just been discharged from the Burns Unit of the RVI in Newcastle having accidently pouring some very hot liquid over her right foot some weeks ago. The injury required some skin grafts and will incapacitate her for some time which will require me to spend a lot of time helping her get better. I'll also need to do a lot more around the house as well as shopping etc.

Therefore can I ask those who intend to enter prints for the book to let me have them as soon as possible instead of waiting until nearer the closing date. This will enable me to work on them is short snatches when I'm free from helping my wife.

Your cooperation would be very much appreciated.

Hi Les, sorry to hear about your wife's accident, I hope that she has a full recovery.

I for one will hurry up with my prints and get them to you before the cut off date.

All the best to you and your wife.

The form asks for photograph details a part from the title of the picture and I know this is going to sound thick but what else should we include?

Sorry to hear Les of your wife's accident. Best wishes for her swift recovery.

We don't know each other Les, but I'm sorry to hear of the accident, wishing Mrs M. a full and speedy recovery. I'll make an effort to avoid last-minute submission. Best Wishes,

Hi Les,

4 prints sent off today.

Sorry to hear about the accident. I hope your wife gets well soon.

Best Wishes,
Mark

Mark,

Your prints arrived yesterday (Monday), thank you.

To date we have entries from 3 members only a long way short of the numbers we need and we now have only 34 days to get enough entries in to make a book. There were many members interested in producing year book but the support up to now is pretty poor so please make an effort in the next couple of weeks otherwise the whole project looks like a dead duck.

My 2 are drying, will be sending them in 2 days.....

Sorry Les!
I had prints in last time, and was looking forward to this years book but right now I'm out of action photographically.
We're right in the middle of moving home. Packed the darkroom kit a couple of months back, as it was in the kitchen- it seemed wise to make the place look less 'cluttered'.
On a positive note I might soon once again have a permanent darkroom, for the first time in years!!!
Unfortunately at the pace the conveyancing is going there's no way I'll be wet printing again anytime soon. Might just manage end of the year, way too late for this.
Wouldn't surprise me if a lot of work comes in at the last minute.
Cheers!

I had hoped to get a submission but started a major darkroom renovation a few months ago which is still ongoing. It'll be September before I get it up and running, which is no help for this year's book - apologies.

Hopefully I can play a bigger part in Print Exchanges and future book projects. I hope you get enough submissions to proceed Les and that your wife makes a good recovery.
