So I’m driving around working on a project. The project is in black and white, classic tradition, rangefinder, Tri-x. The ingredients that that have been around for decades. No tricks. No gimmicks. No software. Just look and shoot.

It’s difficult, for me anyway. And sometimes I end up really spinning my wheels. I can’t figure anything out. The light sucks. So, I get out my Fuji 6×9 rangefinder and I shoot color to burn the time. I just drive around looking for things. Anything really.

You can shoot color in any light and it still looks okay. Not to say it doesn’t look better in great light, but you can still make noon work. I can’t say the same for black and white. Black and white, for me, needs that directional light of early or late.

These snaps are from Roswell, a strange place. But you already knew that.
