Philly Photo Day

If you’re reading this on Friday, October 26, you shouldn’t be. Today is Philly Photo Day, and if you’re in and around the city you need to grab your camera, get out, and make some pictures. After doing so, make sure to take your best shot and upload it over at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center’s site. Due to prior obligations, I couldn’t participate last year, much to my shame. I’m made up for that, though by getting out before work and again at lunch. It’s such a great idea and project the folks at PPAC are running. Photos submitted will be printed for exhibition, and a select group will be featured on SEPTA buses and billboards throughout the city.

I stuck with mostly monochrome today, converting color digital images to B+W using VSCO Film’s T-MAX 400 and Ilford HP5. I really miss doing my own film sometimes, but then I remember how much time I spent in the basement inadvertently huffing chemicals.

Halloween update/edit: Due to Hurricane Sandy, PPAC has extended the deadline for entries. You can do so through midnight tonight, 10/31/12.
