It all started again when...
my friend Justin posted about a photo challenge in November of 2015. It was simple. Every day for the month of November - photograph something that translates well into black and white - called #nocolorvember.
As a child, I was fascinated by the idea of taking photographs in photojournalism. The black and white challenge called me back to that childhood desire and a couple years later I've learned a great deal about myself and where I am happiest in the world - behind the lens.
Three cameras and several hundred photos later and here we are. Justin renewed the call for #nocolorvember for 2016 and I've been participating with relish. In Feburary 2017, I had my first showing at Cotton and Coffee in Lowell, MA.
I currently shoot with a Fujifilm XT-2 which is my pride and joy and my favorite lens is most often the 27mm.
