Waiting for the Zamboni

This image was taken a couple of weeks ago on the roll I developed this week. At Nathan Phillip’s Square the rink is being cleared of skaters for the Zamboni machine.

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.

A Combination of Factors

I was out on Friday with the Hasselblad, and took this image in Nathan Phillips Square. I used a roll of expired Tri-X Professional, and as it turned out the film back I was using will have to have its light seals replaced, as there was some fogging. But the combination of technical issues resulted in a look I quite like. I had to walk around a bit to get the correct angle for the sun, so I didn’t get blinded 🙂
