Graffiti Alley in Colour

Another visit to Graffiti Alley in Toronto. A much sunnier day that the last time I was here! All images taken on Kodak Gold 200 C-41 colour film, with my Voigtlander Bessa R2M and 15mm/F4.5 Superwide Heliar lens.

 

The Filtered View

Last Saturday morning I was back in the Beaches area, near the R.H. Harris plant. I have shot there many times before, but this was the first time I took my new Voigtlander Superwide 15mm lens, and also the first time I shot Eastman Double-X black and white film with a read filter. Really happy with the results in these images!

My Favourite Trees

Back to my favourite trees in the city (in High Park), this time with my Voigtlander Bessa R2M and 15mm/f4.5 SuperWide Heliar lens.

The Siren Call of Ultrawide

A few years ago I traded away a Voigtlander 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar as part of a deal. It was a good trade, but I recently felt a pining for that super wide focal length, so I bought a newer version of the lens (M-mount vs LTM, and it takes filters). I tried it out for the first time last Saturday at High Park, Toronto.

Portrait in the Stone Lion Pub

The Hasselblad does not have a reputation as a great camera for available light shooting, and this portrait shot indoors on Ilford XP2 film is not technically perfect, but I like the expression.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Sunday, April 28th was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. It was a brilliantly sunny (if cold) day, and to celebrate some of the local film community met up in Burlington for a photowalk. Using the same 120 format pinhole camera I got recently I got the same unpredictable results. Pinhole photography in my opinion is a state of mind as much as it is a specific kind of gear.

A Trip To Elora

I was in Elora recently and decided to go with the Voigtlander R2M kit, and Rollei Retro80s and SuperPan 200 films
