52:500c – Week 43 – Make No Little Plans

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency. Remember…

52:500c – Week 38 – Saturday Morning Coffee

I got inspired by fellow 52-Roller, filmphotographylondon and their Week 29 post “Gotta Have Coffee”. And thought to myself, well I could do something similar in Toronto, Ontario!

52:500c – Week 06 – Organized Chaos

During an average working week I have a nice easy thirty-minute drive to and from work, far separated from the bustle of ‘the city’ and when I say city I mean Toronto. But on the 6th week of the project I was on training for a few days in Toronto. So I took the chance…

52:500c – Week 03 – In the Darkness Bind Them

So there’s this little thing out there called reciprocity failure…and well usually you can adjust your exposure times to account for this little issue with film that the longer it’s exposed to light the less sensitive to light it becomes.

TK Roll 2015-43: For Deep-Seated Reasons (Minolta X-700, 45/f2 and 28/f2.8, Agfa Precisa 100)
