As much as I've been shooting black and white analog stuff this year (of which I've developed some but not yet scanned them) it's hard to deny that outside the window the colors are pretty much as vibrant as they're going to be...until the fall colors descend upon us in a few months' time.Read More
After a week full of photo club events and two one-day exhibitions where I had pictures on display, today has been a blissfully laid back Sunday.
