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…

52:500c – Week 48 – Steel City Blues

Hamilton has changed a lot since I first started photographing the city, that was ten years ago with a Minolta DiMAGE Z2 and a Minolta X-7a. Back when I could visit three or four abandoned buildings right in the downtown before hitting up National Pizza at midnight after a successful trip. Those days are long…

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 42 – Royal City

Guelph, Ontario. Not a name of a city that you would think of being related to “Royal” but there it is. Guelph’s downtown is a unique one in Ontario as well and one that I’ve been wanted to include in a ’52’ project since the second one I did. But it never materialized so here…

52:500c – Week 37 – Shaken, Not Stirred

There’s nothing better than after a day of just inclement weather to have a beautiful day to get out and do some shooting! So I took off to one of my favourite spots in Toronto, the Distillery District. After recording some episodes of Classic Camera Revival, and waiting for Heather to be done at a…

52:500c – Week 17 – No Place I’d Rather Be

If you gave me a chance I would take it It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it Know with all of your heart, you can’t shake me When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be N-n-no, no, no, no place I’d rather be — Clean Bandit – “Rather Be…

52:500c – Week 13 – Lovely Downtown

My soul starts spinning again I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling And the fun’s not fun anymore I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling — Franz Ferdinand – Can’t Stop Feeling So you’ll probably see in these photos both in how late I’m posting them and the general look of…

52:500c – Week 08 – Fort Town

If there is one thing that is great about the reenacting hobby is that it gives me a chance to explore the area where the battles I reenact were fought which are part of the story of not just the country of Canada but the Province of Ontario. Prescott, Ontario is one such community that…

52:500c – Week 07 – A View to a Lake

Meeting you, with a view to a kill Face to face in secret places, feel the chill Night fall covers me, but you know the plans I’m making Still oversea, could it be the whole world opening wide A sacred why, a mystery gaping inside The weekend’s why Okay so a view to a lake…

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…
