Sent off a whole bunch of gelatin silver post cards both vintage (printed on Kodak Bromide G3 Fiber) and modern (on Ilford RC Pearl):
Two prints were made in an edition of 3 each. 8x8 image of the rear of the bus on the day we met:
And a selected image from Japan, again in edition of 3. I decided to go all out for these and print them with Lith developer, which gives a brown tone to the image and makes it look more vintage. Old Oriental Seagull paper was used to make these prints - I found it appropriate as the paper was manufactured in Japan. The rough surface texture is very much reminiscent of Agfa 118 surface:
The prints were spotted to perfection. One specular highlight was left un-retouched in the Japan print, but it's actually in the image and I don't spot out things that actually exist in real life.
I hope these prints will be enjoyed as much by the people that receive them as they were by me while I printed them. All the donations that we managed to raise will be spent in the next week or so.... We do hope to see a few more generous people who can afford to pitch in.
Thank You,Anton Orlov.
