Flowers on a Bike

There are a few of these bicycle/flower combos on Queen Street in the Beaches: an ad for a local business. In colour they are a cheery yellow, but I like the look of black and white on a cloudy day.

Into the Sun

Another image from my first roll shot in the Voigtlander Bessa 66 medium format folder. On Sunday morning the best views of Philosopher’s Walk on the U of T campus seemed to be straight into the sun, which usually results in a lot of flare. I placed the sun behind a tree branch to try to minimize it, and I do like the results.

Sharp Shadows

This past Sunday was a glorious winter day: bright and clear, with a dazzling crystal light: like being inside the diamond.  The sharp lines and shadows that would have made an outdoor portrait session very difficult made other kinds of images possible.

This was the first time I had shot on the Voigtlander Bessa 66 120 format folding camera, given to me by my friend David Kent. This model has the amazing Color Skopar lens, and I am very impressed with its sharpness.

Dry Fountain

Another image from The Hamilton G.A.S. Meet up last weekend. After a brilliantly sunny morning, it clouded over at lunch time, but even the overcast light seems to suit the Polypan F film I used.

Pre-Season

Not far from our family home is a lawn bowling club that Janice and I often pass by during evening walks. When open it is full of bowlers, but right now it is quiet in the pre-season, with only the long evening shadows.

Autumn

In my opinion, Kodak Ektar 100 colour negative film was made for autumn; there is just something about the colours. This image was taken a couple of weeks ago in High Park with my Canon P rangefinder and 35mm/2.5 Voigtlander Color Skopar lens. I developed it at home with C-41 chemistry from Argentix.ca

A Man And His Dog

Shooting with a very wide angle lens, it can be difficult to keep people out of the frame sometimes, so you go with the flow, and in this image from the Beaches this past Sunday, as it turned out I quite liking having the man and his dog in the image.
