A Building In Milton, Ontario

The downtown area of Milton is quite interesting architecturally speaking, at least in my opinion. I was shooting on dazzlingly bright summer morning with my good friend Ori, and I noticed the interesting pale pink colour of this building, set against a deep blue sky.

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.

Time-Warp Tuesday: Jock Shot

This week I go further back, to first year university in 1980; I was in residence at the University of Waterloo, and with a lot of jocks around, there was no shortage of photo opportunities, such as the night shot below of one of the skiers who will built a jump beside the residence. This image was shot on Ektachrome, with a small flash unit.

I have never been good at sports, and I’m OK with that: the things I love to do (i.e. Photography, music etc) are things I’ll be able to do into my 80’s (assuming I make it out that far, and I certainly hope to be!). I’m not sure ski-jumping would be the best thing to do in one’s 80’s!
