"Family Day" won Second Prize in the intermediate category in the Art in City Hall contest for Philadelphia City employees in December 2006. The competition was sponsored by the National Arts Program Foundation. I took the photograph in June 2006 with my Leica M2 camera, using Ilford HP5 black and white film. This camera, manufactured in 1960, is razor sharp. Sundays are family day in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia.


Nothing beats black and white silver photography. Not color. Not digital. Drama. Impact. Intensity.

Nothing beats the the mystery of the darkroom. The smell of the chemicals. The magic of emerging images.

Nothing beats cameras that are just cameras. Meter. Focus. Shoot. No computer delays. Speed and simplicity perfected.

Vancouver, Washington---Black and white film photography is the underground medium for high school photography students.

Celebrate the underground.
