Sometimes Monochrome Can Make for a More Vivid Photo

Last weekend I took a few photos of Snoqualmie Falls while staying at Salish Lodge. The weather was gray, the clouds lifeless. The photos didn't come out half bad, all things considered, but then I decided today to process a few with the Acros film emulsion. Suddenly the photos came to life.

V4.0.0 Kaizen Firmware for Fujifilm X-T2 is Out

It's on like Donkey Kong! On the way out this morning to Wallace Falls for a shoot and the news shows up on my twitter feed.

Wrong.

Our needs were met by Roozengaarde Tulip Farm: They were open until 7pm and ejected patrons at sunset, far later than the oft shared Tulip Town, which closes at 5pm.
