Back to the Toronto Beaches, but this time in the evening. This man was enjoying his surroundings.

In 1976, when my father let me use my first “good” camera (his Voigtlander Vito B) he sent me to the store to buy film, with the instructions “Ask for Plus-X”. Decades later, here is an image from a test roll of Plus-X I shot yesterday — expired since about 1983, but still perfectly usable!

I had the fun of working with a new model named Holly earlier this week, doing a retro pin-up genre shoot. The key ingredients for pin-up are personality, personality and personality! :-) And Holly had all three, a great sense of humour and a true understanding of the pin-up genre on her part made for a fun, productive shoot!

I’ve been holding onto today’s image for a while, waiting until my good friend Katherine Matthews had released the knitting pattern featured here along with my other good friend Jennifer. I am normally primarily a black and white shooter but I just love the vibrancy of the colour Katherine chose for her pattern here, and of course Jennifer completes the image :-). If you’re a knitter, you can get Katherine’s lovely pattern here.

The final post from my shoot with Grace was made with my Rolleicord Va Twin Lens Reflex Grace shows a dancer’s grace, and in a sense my old Rollei is part of another dance — over fifty years old and still going strong; its dance never ends either. :-)
