    I was recently in Amboy to do a site survey for work and I managed to take a few pictures. Note that this year, I'm focusing on using the Olympus grainy B&W art filter...since I really like the output.

    Route 66

    Amboy Crater

    Abandoned Graffiti

    Like I said, I'm quite enamored by the Olympus grainy B&W art filter, and similarly, with the Sigma 19/2.8 and Sigma 30/2.8.

    The Rt66 sign is my favorite. The graffiti shot is a bit dark on my MacBook.

    I've no issue with grain in photos, I like the look. Of course I'm biased, I was raised by a photographer who shot mostly Tri-X.
