January Twenty-Seventh

Instead of going straight to work this morning, I took the bus to a stop near the National Mall and walked through the "March for Life," an annual gathering and demonstration in opposition to abortion. I took a few photos with my Leica M5 and you'll see those whenever I develop that film. Until then, here are two shots I took with my Fuji digital camera. I converted them to greyscale and edited them with VSCO for iPad.

I said this on Twitter, but for as much as I like black and white photography, digital conversions don't touch the look of analog black and white, whether scanned negatives or actual prints. There's just a certain something to film that's missing in digital.

With that said, I'm still happy to share these. Let me know what you think.
