Something New

Recently the new walkway over Queen Street between the Eaton Centre and Hudson’s Bay opened. Given what is happening to Bricks and Mortar retail it seems like a bridge between two dinosaurs, but I do like the look if it, compared to its dull and dingy predecessor.

A Park in St. Louis

I finally finished a roll that that been sitting in my Rolleiflex for a number of months, long enough that I had forgotten that it had some images of St. Louis. I am finding that Kodak TMX 400 film and Microdol-X developer make a nice combination!

A Cold Night

It was a very cold night in the Distillery District recently, but it was still fun doing some available light photography.

Refusing to Die

On the shores of Lake Ontario, this tree is more stump than anything, but still manages to produce a few leaves. There is nothing strong than the will to live it seems. From a technical point of view, I do like the combination of Microdol-X developer and HP5+.

Revisiting

This spot in High Park has been featured below, but this time the image was created from a slightly different angle. I quite like the look of RPX25 in medium format!
