Weeks 19-22: Pretty Much Wandering Around Toronto

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: 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.…

Weeks 10 – 13: Toronto in the Heart of Winter

Weeks 7,8 and 9: A Mix

Week Seven: Winter just begs for black and white so I gave in…These images were made along Queen Street East, Toronto. Week Eight: It’s still winter and while I do not shoot alot in black and white and when I do it must be Kodak Tri-X, I was rather enjoying it.  I also wanted to…

Week Six: Anything Red

It was a few days after Christmas so finding anything “red” was not too hard and I’m all about making life easy.  I was terribly smitten by the dressed-up dog and even walked onto what I consider private property to get closer.  All the images were captured in the Beach, Toronto.   Thanks for stopping…

Week Five: Behind Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto

These images were made at the Estates of Sunnybrook in Toronto which is comprised of three historic buildings.  The site includes two country manor houses and a coach house built in the late 1920/30s. They were the family homes of two wealthy men, James Stanley McLean, President and founder of Canada Packers (McLean House originally…
