Inside the Cafe

Janice and I had breakfast in this cafe across the street from Notre Dame in Montreal on our recent trip. I would call this interior a glorious competition!

Images of Old Montreal

We were recently in Montreal for a few days of vacation, and most of my photography was in Old Montreal. I love the architecture in that part of town! Perfect for wide-angle images, such as these, shot on Kodak TMax 400 film and various Voigtlander Bessa rangefinders

 

Portrait By the Window

I took this portrait recently with my 1945-50 vintage Voiglander Bessa 66 folding medium format camera. There were a number of reasons why this image should not have turned out: this is a scale focus camera (meaning you have to judge the distance), and I was shooting wide open; no margin for error. I was also pushing HP5+ to EI 1600 for the first time. But what I got was one of my favourite portraits of the year!

Flowers on a Bike

There are a few of these bicycle/flower combos on Queen Street in the Beaches: an ad for a local business. In colour they are a cheery yellow, but I like the look of black and white on a cloudy day.
