A ton of people are coming into the city for a political event? Obviously I am taking photos. On Friday and most of Saturday, I wandered through and around the crowds with two cameras, one digital and one film. These shots are from the digital camera, a Fujifilm X100T. I used the 50mm telephoto lens for the first set of photos, taken on inauguration, and the 28mm wide-angle lens for the second set, taking at the Women's March on the National Mall. I used the in-camera monochrome conversion, slightly adjusted for my own aesthetic tastes.
Both days were cloudy and a little damp, and you can tell; where they sky is visible, it's clearly gray, and the overcast eliminates any shadows, evenly diffusing the light from the sun.
I don't know that I had a particular goal with these photos, other than to document when I saw during both days. These first few, as I said earlier, are from inauguration day.
"Fuck this Shit" was the last photo I took on Friday. The remaining photos are from the Women's March. I should say I've become much economical with my digital shooting. Of the roughly 100 photos I took, I used 16, which is a decent ratio given that you have unlimited space to shoot with digital. I also brought a Fuji 6x7 camera, and for that, it took me two days to shoot ten exposures. You'll see those in a few weeks, I think. Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of the set.
