Memory

I took this image on a recent walk downtown, and I don’t remember the location. There are days my memory (or lack thereof) just scares me …

The Beaches Through a Red Filter

Yes, I love the look of skies darkened by a red filter. To me it seems like a sense of stark drama is created, a hidden eeriness is revealed. These four images are from a recent trip down to The Beaches.

Abandoned?

Recently at the Beaches my friend Ori and I saw this child’s tricycle close the water; there were no children nearby, but it did not look like the kind of thing that would be abandoned. The combination of the bright sun, the bright colour and the amazing Agfa Portrait 160 film (frozen from 2004) makes this one of my favourite images so far this year.

The Firehouse

My good friend Bill Smith was kind enough to give me two rolls of Agfa Portrait 160 film, expired in 2004, but stored frozen. I love this film!
