I love this mural on a building on Gerrard St. in the East end of Toronto.

Yesterday I took part in an all day choral workshop as a member of the Exultate Chamber Singers, as we began preparing for our 2015-2016 season. The workshop took place in Toronto’s Distillery District, so at lunch I went out with my Olympus Pen F camera, with a Pentax M 50mm/1.4 lens, mounted via an $8 adapter to a Canon EOS to Olympus Pen adapter. Not nearly as cumbersome as it sounds, and coupled with a sharp fine-grained film such as the Rollei RPX 25 I think the combination works.
I’ve always wanted to get a dramatic sky photo, and finally I’ve found the combination! Rollei Retro 80s film, plus a 25A red filter and Polarizing filter stacked together. I took this with my Mamiya RZ67 and 65mm lens early on a Sunday morning at the Beaches, with the sun at a right angle, for maximum polarizing effect.
Yes, I like shooting gazebos! They have such an interesting geometry about them that I can’t resist, and there is no 12 step program for this particular architectural fetish 🙂
I’m also spending more time shooting large format, and enjoying the slower, more thoughtful process.
