real is more interesting than perfect

I love black & white and the dramatic effect it can give a photo.  My favorite editing tool is VSCO Tri-X as it reminds me of my old film days in the dark room developing black & white prints and the exciting feeling when the image first appears in the chemical tray.  I'm in the process of re-editing old digital photos and discovering that I like them even more in monochrome than in color.  I'm also looking for those images that seem the least posed, the ones where I have been able to capture the mood of the moment and you can feel emotion in them.  I will continue to add images to this post with the intention of making a book with Artifact Uprising.  This will be one of my winter projects and I'm putting it here to hold me to it.
