    no one has an excuse for not entering this one. I have some I love in the archives, but I'll try to shoot an original and bust out of my slump.

    Looks like I'll be breaking open some tri-x ...

    (note to Luke: tri-x is a kind of film)

    I thought it was just a name of a digital pre-set in photo editing programs :tongue:

    betwixt and between
    I reserve the right to change this and believe that's in the "rules" o' the road on these challenges, however since I am pretty sure I won't be getting any new gritty black and whites here is one that most of you have never seen before (perhaps understandably so:biggrin:).

    I went for gritty emotion rather than gritty processing! Does that count?
