Last of the Water Treatment Plant Series

One more of the water plant in the Beaches. I am really happy with how even without a filter, using Rollei Retro 80s film I can get contrast between sky and clouds.

Another image from the water treatment plant in the Beaches. To me it looked like a shrine.

Sky Window

Another just developed slide image from my visit with Michelle and friends in Quebec last summer. IT was a brilliantly bright day, and in this window the sky looked so blue, and I loved the way the reflection was set off by the red window frame.

Back to the Gazebo

I’ve shot this Gazebo in the Beaches a lot, so it seemed logical to shoot it with my newly acquired Hasselblad 500 c/m and 80mm lens. I shot on Rollei RPX film, developed in Rodinal. I LOVE this combo of film, lens and developer!

There is an interesting structure on the Ryerson campus in Toronto: a green house, hiding behind the facade of a muhc older building. I will definitely need to go back and shoot some more when I have more time.

Formalism is Where You Find It

Last Saturday in Milton I was struck by the geometric patterns of the pipes etc. on this wall, with the bright sunlight and contrasty film throwing them into stark relief.
