I struggled with the challenge this week. When I could visualize the word “forward” I could not capture a photo. Some of the participants posted images of things in motion or the tracks left by moving things. I looked for ways to do that this week. The roads near my home are narrow one-lane-ditch-on-side country roads. There is no stopping to take a photo.

I had nothing in my catalog similar to any of these. I shoot mostly architecture, landscape, and macros. I have some images I shot during a high school football game but I don’t find them interesting. We only go to see our daughter perform in the marching band.

So what to do?

Post a randomly chosen image from the set of images of the marchind band. I removed one of the field lights form the upper right hand corner, applied a Fuji ACROS B&W filter, and used Nik’s Dfine 2 to remove some high ISO noise.

Both of these images were shot on a Fuji X-T2 wih the Fujinon 16-55mm f/2.8 XF R LM WR.

UPDATE: After I posted this, I felt that an image of the marching band was more appropriate, so I added the band image as the feature image. I like the marching band photo better.
