Down and Up the Stairs

Not far from where we live is Todmorden Mills, an historic site which to me has the added significance of being the location of our older daughter’s upcoming marriage at the end of the month. These images are two views of the same set of stairs, going down and coming up.

Osgoode Hall Interiors

Following my post of Osgoode Hall Exteriors, here are my interior images from the recent Doors Open event.

City Hall

It’s always a good exercise to try to find a different perspective on a subject that’s been done to death. Not sure if I succeeded.

Framing

I love this old railway bridge in the lower Don Valley here in Toronto. There has been a lot of rain this spring so there is lush vegetation everywhere, and I like the internal framing effect in this image.

Mismatch

I was out in the Beaches last Sunday and snapped this image quickly before the motorcyclist could drive off, so I wasn’t looking closely at the background. When I scanned the negative and looked at the image I was amused by the mismatch of foreground and background.

Finally!

The Flatiron building in Toronto is one of the most photographed buildings in the city, but I don’t think I’ve ever taken an image of it that I really liked, until now …

Since I was point the 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar up in the air, I got lots of distortion, but I like how it worked out.

A Lens I Haven’t Used Much

Today’s image was shot using a lens I tend not to use much, but should take out more often: my Leitz Elmar 90mm/f4. This is an old Leica screw mount lens that fits on my Voigtlander Bessa R2M via an adapter. It’s prone to flare but with a lens hood it’s pretty good.
