Variables

This photograph from Ward’s Island was created with long-expired “red scale” colour negative film. Red scale film is film that is reversed in the roll, so you are shooting through the orange film base, resulting in some interesting tonality. I had no idea if the film was still usable, I didn’t even know the original speed of the film (before accounting for the red effect on exposure). I was very happy to see how it turned out.

On the Ferry

The ferry to Ward’s Island in Toronto has a rather retro feel to it, which I like.

Ramshackle

Many of the residences on Toronto’s Ward’s Island have a certain Ramshackle charm.
