Garden Enclave

These two images are from last weekend GAS meet-up / Photowalk in Hamilton ON. As the group strolled around, we came upon this little enclave downtown. A lovely surprise location! In the first image walk leader Alex is taking a peek. The second image is a view inside the garden.

Back to the Atlas Coal Mine

I just seem to keep coming back to my images from this location! There was certainly a lot to shoot. πŸ™‚ Both images were created with my Voigtlander Bessa R Rangefinder with 15mm/4.5 Super-Heliar lens, on Rollei RPX 25 film, developed in Rodinal.

Hidden Treasure

Of of the joys that is unique to film photography is developing a roll of film and being surprised at what was on it :-). Earier this week I developed a roll of 35mm Kentmere 400, expecting more Guelph or Alberta images, and it turned out to be a roll from out Scotland trip that I had overlooked. Taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R and 15mm/4.5 Extreme Wide-Angle Super -Heliar at the Edinburgh Castle, very happy with the sense of movement.

This is another image taken during my recent trip to the Badlands in Alberta. It had rained the day before, so the textures of the rock and sand were smoothed and muted, but still alien and harsh in their own way.

At the Bridge

The railway bridge in Lethbridge, Alberta is quite iconic, and it was interesting to look at it through a gazebo-shaped look-out at the top of a hill.

Fragile Beauty

One of my images from this past Sunday morning at the Beaches. What I remember about this shot is that I had to spend some time before clearing the litter out of frame. People can be such pigs 😦
