Horizontal Lines

The recent high water at the Beaches has really caught my eye in terms of lines, especially horizontal. These four images were taken yesterday with my Voigtlander Bessa R2M and 50mm/f2 Heliar lens on Kodak TMax 400 film.

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.

Tree Torsos

To me, these trees that had to be cut down (I think perhaps because of beetles?) look like pieces of old statues one would find among ruins.

Busker in the Blossoms

The Sakura Cherry Blossom event in Toronto tends to be hit or miss, based on the weather. In 2016 for example it was pretty much a bust. This year however the blossoms were in full view. In a sea of smartphones, DSLR’s and selfie sticks it was fun shooting black and white with a rangefinder.

Chairs and Water

Today another image of chairs by the water at the Toronto Beaches. Widely scattered, they seemed like sentinals, watching for the coming summer on a rather cool spring day.
