Week 52: The End

Finally, the year for me on this 52 Rolls journey is now over.   It was great fun and I even moderately enjoyed the posting part!   Thank you all for your comments and kind words.  I especially loved seeing everyone’s images and reading their stories. While I may not be posting anymore, I will…

Weeks 49 – 51: Includes Halloween

Nearing the end… Week 49: Wall art in Cabbagetown, Toronto with my Pentax 645N.   Week 50: Ahh yes Halloween, my favourite holiday of the year and Toronto does it well.  All images made with my Pentax 645N. Week 51: Halloween continues for another week into November.  I used two different cameras that week (not…

Weeks 46 – 48: On a Roll

I have many more weeks to post so you will be overloaded with my postings, sorry.  All weeks 46 through 48 were made with my Contax 645 on Kodak Portra 400 film. Week 46: Back to my favourite places to wander, the laneways in Toronto. Week 47: Random Colours   Week 48: Leaves underfoot, on…

Weeks 34 – 42: Everyday New Orleans

The following may sound like an excuse, but seriously it isn’t. There are just way too many photos from my summer in New Orleans (60+rolls all medium format) to choose my favourites for a weekly posting.  In an effort to cause myself as little pain as possible you have this massive summary of nine weeks.…

Weeks 29-33: Urban walks and the beach in Toronto

I’m back after spending two months in New Orleans.  I went through 60+ rolls of film and now comes the waiting.  Each week I usually take in for developing and scanning only 2-3 rolls from vacation in addition to what I shoot now that I’m back home.  No point overwhelming the lab or myself! Week…

Weeks 23-25: From Flowers To Back Laneways

Week 23: It’s all about spring flowers. Two cameras that week, my Contax 645 and my Hasselblad 503CW, both with Kodak Portra 400 film.   Week 24: Next up is a visit to Riverdale Farm. Riverdale Farm is a 7.5 acre city operated farm in the heart of Cabbagetown, an urban neighbourhood in Toronto. Camera…

Weeks 19-22: Pretty Much Wandering Around Toronto

Week 19:  I started with a wander at the further end of Queen Street East in the Beach.  Camera and film used was my Hasselblad 503CXi and Kodak Portra 400 film.   Week 20: This week I was further west and north into Cabbagetown and so much caught my eye.  Camera and film used was my Pentax 645N and Kodak…

Week 18: Purchased a Holga 120N

Walking in the other direction at the Beach, Toronto for more from the Winter Stations Design Exhibition and other sights along the way. The Holga 120N uses 120 film and is one of my preferred formats, 6X6. I had to buy one.  While I love the dreamy and oh so soft edges,  I’m not so sure…

Week 15,16,17: Winter is Black & White

Week 15: A walk around the local greenbelt (still very brown) in late February.  I can’t wait for that to change.   Week 16: Another walk down to the Beach to take in the Winter Stations Design Exhibition.  I love the effect of the Lensbaby Plastic in these images.   Week 17: Even though I made many…

Week 14: A Day of Firsts

My first pack of Impossible Project Film shot with my new SLR670-S which takes both ISO 100 and 600 film, a combination SX-70 and SLR680.  I had never shot instant film before so in the spirit of “it’s film what’s not to love” attitude I went out on a warm (for winter), sunny day to give it a try.…
