I have a hard time motivating myself to get out and take pictures this time of year when the weather is just one big ol’ bucket of suck. So I’m going to give myself anther personal challenge. I’m aiming to post a new photo every day during February, shooting nothing but black and white for the entire month.

I’ve been shooting with Fujifilm cameras for about a year now, and Fuji is known for their wonderful film simulations and great quality jpg files. I’ve shot a fair amount with Fuji’s Provia, Velvia and Classic Chrome simulations, but Acros (a classic B&W film from Fuji) seems to be a fan favorite and I am long overdue to give it a good workout.

So for the entire month of February, one new photo every day and my camera will be set for Acros all month long.


I debated about posting this photo. It would have been better if I would have been there about 30 minutes earlier when there was still just a bit of light in the sky. But photographing the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge wasn’t my original intent tonight. I was going to go to Bright Nights at Lauritzen Gardens, but when I saw the long line of cars waiting to get into a nearly full parking lot, I decided to look for something a little less crowded. I’m sure I’ll be back to the bridge to shoot more photos when the light is better.
