A couple of weeks ago we had a very warm sunny Sunday, (at least by the standards of Toronto in March). That mean a lot of melting snow and ice, and reflections in the sunlight.
I was recently visiting a friend in Liberty Village, Toronto. I took along my Olympus OM-2, loaded with a roll of Kodak Plus-X, over 20 years expired.
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.
Love locks capture a moment in time. I look at them and wonder how the stories they tell evolved. Was the permanence an illusion?
I haven’t been to Toronto’s Distillery District for around a year or so, because of COVID. That changed late last week when I went down early on a sunny morning, with my OM-1 kit and some Fomapan 100.

I was out recently early in the morning. It had rained overnight, and I love the look of raindrops on plants, especially in black and white.
As the pandemic slogs on, I am finding I am only halfway here, a living ghost, hoping life can resume.
I have added an Olympus OM-4T to the stable, and this image was taken with my Sigma 90mm/2.8 lens. I love the way this lens renders!
It was a bright sunny day this morning, so good for a quick outing in the neighbourhood.
