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 Rick Smith to take this five-day challenge. Rick, 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 #1.

America is now a debtor nation. China holds much of our debt, and, consequently, most of our wealth. This armored truck is driving west, on the Huntington Beach, California pier, toward China. OK, it isn’t driving TO China — just TOWARD China. Hopefully, if will turn around at the restaurant, at the end of the pier.

For those who care: 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.
