Calton Hill

On our first day in Edinburgh (rather rainy and windy most of the time) one of the places we went was Calton Hill Park: an interesting location containing an offbeat collection of structures. This Greek-inspired structure caught my eye.

Fascinating Tree

This tree is found in High Park, Toronto, and I’ve always found it most interesting. I like the way it is captured by an ultra-wide lens.

The Bridge Revisited

I love this bridge on Queen Street a bit west of Broadview Avenue in Toronto, and the 15mm lens suits it.

Revisiting the Cemetery

I’ve been to the St. James Cemetery in Toronto a few times to shoot, and I went again this past Saturday. It was a dull day, but the combination of EDU 400 film (from The Film Photography Project) and TMax developer brought out some nice light.

Finally a New Photograph!

Preparing for the show, so little time for new photos, finally got a roll developed today. A couple of weeks ago I was at Koerner Hall in Toronto to take in an amazing concert. It is a lovely hall, so I decided to take a chance with a photograph. No flash of course so I had to use a shutter speed of 1/8th of a second. Pleasantly surprised!

The Walkway

Another image from the old railway station near Yonge/Summerhill in Toronto. I love what the 15mm lens does for scenes like this!

Commonplace

An abandoned shopping cart is not that uncommon a sight in a large city, but I liked what the combination of the morning sunshine and the extreme wide-angle perspective did to it.
