This is Day #2 of The New Five Day Black & White Photo Challenge. I’ve been nominated, once again, by Luis Vasconcelos, of Lisbon, Portugal for the 5 Day Black & White Photo Challenge. This time, the challenge is a to recognize fellow photographer Chris Brunkhart‘s stage 4 cancer diagnosis. In keeping with his tradition of shooting in black and white, the participating photographers will do the same. One original black and white image and one nomination per day, for five days. Anyone can visit the above link to donate to the Chris Brunkhart Cancer Fund.
I nominate Larry Abellera to take this five-day challenge. Larry, should you decide to take it please post one black and white photograph each day for five days and invite another person on each of those days to also participate. It is OK to take the challenge, or nominate someone more than once.:)
Here goes my photo for day #2. This is Fred’s Mexican Cantina, on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Main Street, in Huntington Beach, California.
Olympus OMD-EM5, M. Zuiko 17mm/2.8 @f8, ISO 200, 1/800. Captured using the Dramatic Tone (Art 10) filter. Desaturated in post and yellow filter effect applied. Slight curves adjustment made. I captured both the RAW and jpeg files, but only used the jpeg because I liked the Dramatic Tone filter effect. I do wish I hadn’t cropped the bottom so tightly. The car seems to be driving into a ditch. 🙂
