Windang wheels

Windang Island sits just beyond the mouth of Lake Illawarra. At low tide it is possible to walk out to the island over a narrow sand bar or isthmus which becomes submerged at high tide in a big swell and storms. In a Dreaming story, Windang Island is an abandoned canoe used by the Thurawal…

52:500c – Week 12 – A House Divided

Welcome back to week 12, the missing week from my part of the project, now thanks to my wonderful fiancée, Heather, and her encouragement I went back and rescanned the film I had just filed away. If you haven’t gone that far back in the project, you’ll remember in Week 13 I mentioned that I…

52:500c – Week 36 – Castle

If you’ve ever been to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and you happen to walk along the river’s edge or stand at Fort George take a quick look across the Niagara River. You’ll see standing tall at the river’s mouth a collection of somber stone buildings. But what you may not realize is that you’re looking at the…

52:500c – Week 34 – Wednesday Night Blues

It slowly sinks in; week 34 may not get shot, or it could be shot around Sheridan again. Thankfully they were quickly shaken as I had to head to Toronto to record to September episode of the Classic Camera Revival Podcast, and I find myself on a lovely evening walking through the Leslieville neighborhood of…

52:500c – Week 29 – Lovely Saturday Drive

Probably one of my favourite drives in all of the Province of Ontario is along the Niagara River. There’s always something to see along the winding Niagara Parkway that starts at Fort Erie and ends at Fort George. This time we, that is Heather and me, did not do the full drive instead we started…

Week 13 – Happy

Well over the last week that Ricoh Diacord has been every where with me, and already she has proved her weight. Last week I went to to Beetle & Huxley for the Steve McCurry Exhibition. When I came out i got caught up in a right-wing protest and counter protest. She performed admirably as the…

Week 5 – Change of plan

I had to go and see a physiotherapist today (nothing serious), but I thought I would go out and play with my Holga after. That’s what I was doing when I found out I will have to work this weekend, which is when I was going to go out and do this weeks offering. So…

52:500c – Week 02 – Winter’s Fort

Winter has been something that has been a bit elusive for us in Southern Ontario. Notable the lack of snow the second week into the new year and the new project. So the title of the week isn’t really fitting, but I kept it anyways because if I used “Muddy Fort” people would think I…

Down by the chipper side: paRodinal or bust!

While the rest of the world seems to able to easily purchase Rodinal, in Australia there has been a complete paucity in supply. Rodinal is nowhere to be purchased for love nor money. This crisis has been brought about by air freight regulations, and importers seemingly not planning for customer needs. Rodinal is one of…

Simple…

Sometimes the simplest images are the best.. and sometimes not.. I wanted to try some still life (reminder, don’t use WIDE LENSES).. Unfortunately I completely missed seeing the front of the rail in the image (yes bottom there) as I was concentrating entirely on getting the bananas in sharp focus.. Oh the joys of “Live…

Week #12 – Down By The Water

One place I love to photograph is down by the water treatment plant in Toronto.  Sure, it seems like an odd place, but there are some really amazing views down there.. Of course, metering properly and putting the filter in the correct spot (Wratten #25a) would have been a smart thing to do as well.…
