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.

The Indoor World

Let’s face it: the light during winter is often rather dull and drab. Combine that with the need to stay close to home during the pandemic (and my ongoing back problems!) make looking for indoor subjects at home a good idea, so that is what I did yesterday afternoon. I’ll be doing more of this kind of thing this winter!

Telephoto in Ashbridges Bay

I need to use my Sonnar 250mm/f5.6 lens on my Hasselblad more often. It performs very well wide open, and makes handheld shots practical.   Hasselblad 500CM, 250mm/f5.6 Zeiss Sonnar lens with orange filter Ilford HP5 Plus film, developed in Pyrocat HD

Early Morning in the Guildwood

I have not been to Guildwood Park in Scarborough for quite some time, but I went out early last Saturday morning. Around 7 am I had the park to myself, except for a couple of joggers.

Staying Around the Neighbourhood

As the great lockdown continues, I am making a point of shooting around the neighbourhood, basically within walking distance. I went out yesterday morning around 7 am for these images, all taken with my beloved Kodak Medalist I, shooting Ilford HP5+ , respooled for the 620 format required by the Medalist.
