I am a firm believer that creativity needs constraints. I talked a bit about that in my post, Photo Life 3: Traveling with Photography Gear.
I have been on one too many trips where I have packed too many cameras, too much film, and I felt burdened by the sheer weight of carrying it all.
For this trip, I had one roll of film - Ilford HP5 Black and White. And that's it.
Here are my favorites from the roll, starting with Seattle.
I love how the grain of these black and white photos make them seem like they were taken in the 1950's or 60's.
And Portland shines on black and white film.
