RE: alt-photo anniversary in 2009
I couldn't remember how long I had been on the list, so I did a search on the
archive and found my name on 1995 archive, so it must have been at least 13
And I can't remember how I came across it either. It has been that long!
Special thanks to Gord!
Any many thanks to the list members, old and new, from which I have learned a
lot. Thanks to Pete who helped me when I tried the fotempera process. And many
thanks to Judy who helped me when I tried my first gum.
