Tommy Thompson Park

Last weekend, I finally got to photograph a spot I’d wanted to for a long time – Tommy Thompson Park, or as it’s better known as the Leslie Street Spit. This has been Toronto’s dumping ground for construction waste since the 1960’s. As such, the beaches are pretty much made up of eroded bricks, concrete…

Leftover Photos From Our Southwest US Vacation

On our recent trip to the US Southwest, I shot close to 20 rolls of medium format film and only 1.5 rolls of 35mm. Below are the last shots from the half roll of AgfaPhoto APX 100 on our trip. Both from Bryce Canyon and Death Valley. Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3M Lens: Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm…

Warsaw Caves

Warsaw Caves Conservation Area is a favourite spot of mine. We’ve been coming here for as long as I’ve lived in the area. This time we had the entire place to ourselves. The caves themselves are quite small, but fun to explore if you like getting dirty – which on this particular day I did…

Cordova Falls

Cordova Falls is a spot that I return to every year around mid-November for a couple of reasons. The first being that it’s such a neat spot to photograph and so much changes from year to year depending on the amount of water flowing over the dam; and second, it’s one of those rare times…

I am constantly in awe the kinds of images that can be produced with this piece of crap, plastic camera. The Holga 120N is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. The only real issue I have with it is the amount of black tape I have to put all over the camera to stop light…

Cambridge Mill Through a Holga

This is the probably the longest I’ve gone before developing a roll of film. Usually, I like to develop within a couple days/weeks of shooting. I just developed this roll today which I started back at the beginning of September. I totally forgot what was even on the roll… so it was kind of a…

Death Valley National Park

Day 6 After another crappy breakfast at the motel in Bryce, we started our 7 hour drive through 4 states to reach Death Valley National Park in California. Once we started heading northwest from Las Vegas, you start to really become aware of the remoteness which I actually felt a bit nerve-racking. I kept fearing…
