Loving the Swirl

I was in the Beaches again this past weekend, and my lens of choice was my 58mm/f2 Helios 44/2. I love the overall look and swirl of this lens when used wide open!

A Change in Approach

I shoot mainly film, but also digital and iPhone, and I have decided to stop listing the gear I used to create an image unless it is key to the story. If you are are really curious about the gear, just leave a comment and I will respond.

There is too much digital vs film, brand x vs brand y, format vs. format nonsense going on. I am getting off that bus.

These two images come from a walk yesterday in the midday heat.

Two Statues

Two close-ups of statues by graves in a cemetery in Toronto. Sad, weathered expressions, waiting for hope.

Both images taken with my Olympus OM-4T, on Rollei Retro 80s film, developed in Rodinal

After the Rain

I was out recently early in the morning. It had rained overnight, and I love the look of raindrops on plants, especially in black and white.

Only Halfway Here

As the pandemic slogs on, I am finding I am only halfway here, a living ghost, hoping life can resume.

Olympus 4T

I have added an Olympus OM-4T to the stable, and this image was taken with my Sigma 90mm/2.8 lens. I love the way this lens renders!
