TTC Open House

This is my last film photo blog for a couple of weeks, but maybe there will be some digital/smartphone shots rom Croatia.

Recently, the TTC held an open house at one of its maintenance facilities. A fascinating tour!

All images taken with my Nikon F2A and 20mm/f2.8 Nikkor lens on Eastman Double-X film.


The Subway Tunnel of Memory

Two more images from the rail museum in Halton. In one of the barns they have two old TTC subway cars. I remember riding these models when I first came to Toronto in the early 1980’s. Now they live on in a permanent twilight. Weird, and a bit sad to see them empty.

Dupont Station

A bright day on Saturday made for a lot of interesting reflections and distortions on the plexiglass at the entrance to the Dupont subway station in Toronto.

Afternoon Light

I love late afternoon light, and it can often give a great look inside the bus I take home from work. This image was taken with the iPhone Hipstamatic app, then cropped a bit.
