A High Park Surprise

While cleaning my home office last week I found an unmarked exposed roll of TMax 100 in 120 format. I had had not idea what was on it, and was pleasantly surprised by the results. The subject was High Park in a sunny day, some time in 2018. Here are three images from that roll.

The Silence of Snow and Ice

This image was taken in a park in Lethbridge, Alberta on a Sunday morning in my recent trip out west. The trees were covered in a frost from a combination of fog and very low temperatures. There was no wind, and the sky was softly overcast. The silence was lovely.

Back to Banff

I have just returned from a two week work trip in Alberta, and I did have one weekend for photography, so it was up to Banff on Saturday. The day was brilliant, clear and cold.

Snow, Not Sand

I finally finished a roll of Eastman 2366 duplicating film yesterday, both started and finished at the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto’s Beaches district. 2366 is a slow (EI 15) very sharp film that I am really learning to love the look of! In this image, a casual glance might lead one to think it was sand, but this is all snow, on a bitterly cold January day.

Dog-Tired

It’s been a chilly weekend (by Toronto standards) by that hasn’t gotten in the way of doing some street photography. I saw this man carry a fair sized dog, and managed to pop off a quick image.
