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

Memory

I took this image on a recent walk downtown, and I don’t remember the location. There are days my memory (or lack thereof) just scares me …

Mismatch

I was out in the Beaches last Sunday and snapped this image quickly before the motorcyclist could drive off, so I wasn’t looking closely at the background. When I scanned the negative and looked at the image I was amused by the mismatch of foreground and background.

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.
