I’m doing this mainly to give a “shout out” to my friend Edwin, but I needed to give this an artistic spin. Edwin got a hold of me through my blog after we hadn’t talked to each other for almost 8 years even though we live in the same city. (These things happen.) So, I decided to dig up some old photographs I had taken during my black and white photography class at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. I think it is hard to dislike black and white photography because it just has a different look and feel that I think is hard to achieve with color photography. Anyway, the above pictures were two of my favorite that I shot during that class and they all feature friends of mine…including Edwin. Enjoy and thank you for indulging me.
