Several years ago my friend Trevor started a quest to shoot in black and white. He started a challenge when some people decided to follow along. You can read more about his photographic journey here. I attempted to follow along at one point but have never really gotten the hang of flicker. This year for the photo challenge there is a community on google+, a group on facebook, and a group on flicker. It makes it almost impossible not to be a part of the challenge. This year the challenge is to shoot along with the theme and post your best image. This week, which ends on the 12th, the theme is Icon. Trevor posted a definition and I am going with the second definition which is: A person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something.
My icon for this week's challenge is the big coffee cup, an icon for coffee drinkers everywhere! :)
If you would like to join the challenge you can go here, here, or here. Happy shooting!
