Toronto Zoo

Back in October our family had a free weekend, so a last minute decision, and we ended up at the Toronto Zoo. We used to have a membership several years ago but found that we weren’t going enough to justify it. They were having a Halloween weekend, and kids that dressed in costume got in…

Toronto Film Shooters Meetup – Fall 2019

A couple weeks back I attended a Toronto Film Shooters photowalk. We met up at the Brickworks in the Don Valley and worked our way up through a bunch of trails to Yonge Street where we disbanded and went for lunch. I brought along a Fed 3a loaded with AgfaPhoto Vista 200 colour film and…

Kiwanis Heydenshore Park
