Toronto in Colour

This image is from the first roll of colour film I’ve developed at home in quite a while. The ice rink at Nathan Phillips Square is long gone, but the water for the summer has not been topped up, so this in-between time made for some great reflections.

Stubbornness

Another post anthropomorphizing trees and the changing seasons. While some trees have changed colours, others are still stubbornly staying green as long as possible.

Resignation

In my first fall colours post yesterday I used the word “defiance” describing the bright leaves still on the tree. The three images today are more about the leaves that have already fallen, covering the ground in colour, but dead and resigned. All three images created with my Hasselblad 500C/M and 50mm/4 Distagon lens, using Kodak Ektar 100 film.

Glen Stewart Ravine

I was in the Glen Stewart Ravine in the Beaches last weekend. Everything is so green and alive! (Although the tree stump in the second image leaves me wishing I could have seen the tree when it was alive). All images taken with Hasselblad 500C/M, 50mm/4 Distagon lens on Kodak Ektar 100 film.

Colour Riot

I’ve mentioned before that black and white is my photographic mother tongue, but it is fun to go on a colour riot from time to time. This is a detail of multiple layers of graffiti, in Toronto’s Bloor and Keele area.

Kodak Ektar 100: Falling in Love

It is sadly ironic that at what might appear to be the twilight of the analog film era some of the best films ever made are now available. I’ve only shot a couple of rolls of it so far, but Kodak Ektar 100 colour negative film is rapidly becoming my favourite colour film. I used to see colour negative film as a decidedly poor sister to slide fim, in terms of sharpness and saturation, but I see no such weakness in Ektar 100. The image below is from the Kodachrome walk, where in addition to some Kodachrome I did shot a roll of Ektar. I look at the blues and red/oranges, and I’m in love with this film!
