    48th SC Photo Challenge - Shadows & Shapes - winner announced

    As we begin the 2018 my thoughts are reflecting on what I really enjoy about photography. How I got hooked in the first place. One of the first aspects of photography that pulled me in were the B&W films and how they can emphasize both shadow and shape. So this first challenge of the new year...
