Arch Reflections

Last weekend my eye was caught by the reflections at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto.

Recently I bumped into my photographer friend Leon Bonin, near Downtown Camera in Toronto. When it comes to street photography, Leon is absolutely fearless; he will ask anyone if he can take his/her picture, and he gets great results.

From a technical point of view,  I am very happy with the combination of HP5+ film (not know for super fine grain) and Perceptol developer. Reasonably tight grain, and nice tonality!

Michelle Again

Here is another image of my friend Michelle, taken at the Quebec meet-up of friends she hosted. This photograph was made with my 4×5 Speed Graphic, my antique Petzval lens, some amazing light, and an amazing subject 🙂


Looking at the Future

(Scheduled post while I’m away).

Recently I was done by the lake and saw this young couple: as they looked out upon the calm waters, I wondered if they were looking at a future together.

Another Pyrocat HD Image

Here is another image from the roll of HP5+ film I developed in Pyrocat HD developer yesterday. This developer has really “unlocked” this film for me. Taken in Niagara-On-The-Lake on a very dull day this past summer, the tonality is much better than I would have expected.

Playing Chess

Another image from the roll shot using the Pentax 200mm/f4 lens, this time of chess players in front of Metropolitan Church in downtown Toronto. There is always an interesting collection of characters in this location!
