The Lift Lock in Peterborough

Some images of the Lift Lock in Peterborough Ontario, taken during the recent Toronto Film Shooters and Kingston Film shooters joint outing. All images taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R2M camera, 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar lens with red filter, on Rollei Retro 80 Acros film

The Beaches Through a Red Filter

Yes, I love the look of skies darkened by a red filter. To me it seems like a sense of stark drama is created, a hidden eeriness is revealed. These four images are from a recent trip down to The Beaches.

Finally!

The Flatiron building in Toronto is one of the most photographed buildings in the city, but I don’t think I’ve ever taken an image of it that I really liked, until now …

Since I was point the 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar up in the air, I got lots of distortion, but I like how it worked out.

The Filtered View

Last Saturday morning I was back in the Beaches area, near the R.H. Harris plant. I have shot there many times before, but this was the first time I took my new Voigtlander Superwide 15mm lens, and also the first time I shot Eastman Double-X black and white film with a read filter. Really happy with the results in these images!
