Sun and Wind

Last Monday at Bluffer’s Park I noticed these plants. I liked the backlighting on them but the glare of the sun plus the breeze moving the plants around made for tricky shooting and it took a few attempts to get these two images using my Nikon F4 and 28mm lens, shooting on Rollei RPX film

Don’ forget to check out this week’s episode of My Photography Podcast, featuring an interview with pinhole photographer Moni Smith!



Only in Colour

Today I’m posting one more image from Bluffer’s Beach on January 1st, 2017. It was originally shot in black and white (the only film I had with me), but the image really didn’t work that way, so I added so hand tinting with pencil crayons to a inkjet print.

Low Sun

Another image from my January 1st outing to Bluffer’s Park Beach. The sun was low in the sky at this moment.

A New Year

For a few years now I have made it my own little ritual to go out for a shoot on the morning of January 1st. That way, no matter what else happens, I can say the new year is another year in which I have some at least some photography. 🙂 This morning I went to Bluffer’s Park Beach in Toronto. A shore symbolizes time to me: the waves and water are eternal, and the shore is always changing.
