Life Behind Bar

Recently while in Harbourfront I noticed this man sitting, and the placement of his head caught my eye.

Sunlight in Oakville

Last weekend I met up with my friend Bill Smith in Oakville on the way to a Classic Camera Revival recording session. It was a brilliantly sunny morning, and the look of this building in the bright sun caught my eye.

There are fewer and fewer of these around (in working order) as time goes on. We are truly in a different era.

Cursing in the Dark

This image from High Park, Toronto last weekend was taken on Svema Foto 100 film; this film has a great look but its very thing and flexible polyester base makes it among the most challenging to get loaded onto a film reel for developing. Much cursing in the dark resulted.
