Lake Barrington, IL

This envelope was the second one sent this year by regular contributor "Storms" of Lake Barrington, IL.  My dog got hold of the envelope but the  46 cards that were in side came out unharmed.  Also included were three color slides.  I tried to photograph them as best I could, with mixed results.

Over the years I've ended up with a good number of slides sent by readers.  I don't mind admitting that the first few I received, I sort of shrugged off and tossed in my box of random non-card Wallach card stuff.  Over the years however, I've come to become a fan of them.  I'd like to figure out a way to do something with these slides, I just haven't decided what.  I've printed some in the past, but that was sort of an underwhelming expierence.  I'm thinking now I'd like to do some Kubrick style front screen projections with them, maybe project them on a wall in my card room and paint a mural over them, or just devise a way to keep them projected like a poster.  I don't know.  I just know I've come to like them.

Thanks for the cards and slides Storms.
