A Wash of Colour

It has been a while; let’s just say the summer has been challenging, and some things have suffered as a result, like my photo blog. I will try to do better.

I was out this afternoon with a lens I have not used in a while: my Lensbaby Sweet35. I love its primitive characteristics, and the way colour seems to wash through the image.

Loving the Swirl

I was in the Beaches again this past weekend, and my lens of choice was my 58mm/f2 Helios 44/2. I love the overall look and swirl of this lens when used wide open!

A Change in Approach

I shoot mainly film, but also digital and iPhone, and I have decided to stop listing the gear I used to create an image unless it is key to the story. If you are are really curious about the gear, just leave a comment and I will respond.

There is too much digital vs film, brand x vs brand y, format vs. format nonsense going on. I am getting off that bus.

These two images come from a walk yesterday in the midday heat.

Two Statues

Two close-ups of statues by graves in a cemetery in Toronto. Sad, weathered expressions, waiting for hope.

Both images taken with my Olympus OM-4T, on Rollei Retro 80s film, developed in Rodinal

After the Rain

I was out recently early in the morning. It had rained overnight, and I love the look of raindrops on plants, especially in black and white.
