Forty-One Years Ago

Every now and then I get reminded of the passage of time. I recently ran across these old slides of flowers in my mother’s garden that I shot as a 15 year old in the summer of 1977. I had just gotten my first SLR, my Yashica TL-Electro (which I still have!) a few months prior. This was my first time shooting colour slide film, some private label pre-rolled Ektachrome. The lens was the Yashinon 50mm f1.9, using extension tubes for close focus.

Velvia Blue

Today another image from the roll of Velvia 50 slide film I shot recently at the Toronto Harbour. I continued to be amazed at what this film does for skies!

Painting a Building

This building is right next door to Union Station in Toronto, and the combination of time of day, brilliant sunshine and some nearby glass and steel made for some interesting light patterns.

Wide Angle and Slide Film

The light in Toronto this January has not been dazzling; even this mainly overcast day was brighter than most. The location is the vintage train yard beside the Steamwhistle Brewing Company location in Toronto.
