Dark Times

I can’t help be worried about the world we are living in right now: war, climate change, disease and the rise of rightwing extremism. It seems most of my non-portrait photography also reflects my concerns.

A Ravine of Shadows

A number of weeks ago, I went to check out Williamson Park Ravine in East Toronto not far from where I live. It was an amazing location; a very dense canopy of trees made for gloomy shadows through which the sunlight only occasionally shone.

Framing

I love this old railway bridge in the lower Don Valley here in Toronto. There has been a lot of rain this spring so there is lush vegetation everywhere, and I like the internal framing effect in this image.

A High Park Surprise

While cleaning my home office last week I found an unmarked exposed roll of TMax 100 in 120 format. I had had not idea what was on it, and was pleasantly surprised by the results. The subject was High Park in a sunny day, some time in 2018. Here are three images from that roll.
