Kiwanis Heydenshore Park

Two weeks ago, following a photo walk in Toronto, I had some time to kill before meeting up with my brother in Whitby so I headed to the beach. I’ve been to this place before, but always with kids in tow so I’ve never really explored the beach as much as I’ve wanted to. For…

Algonquin Park

A couple weeks back, we spontaneously decided to go to Algonquin Park for the day. We got up there around lunch and did the logging museum, Beaver Pond Trail, Visitors Centre, Spruce Bog Boardwalk and checked out Cache Lake before making our way home. It was a perfect day to get out and enjoy the…

New York City on a Holga

I had originally planned to do three mini projects or a small series of photos using the Holga 120N while in New York City – 1) The Oculus; 2) The Brooklyn Bridge; 3) Subways in NYC. Due to the lack of light within the subway system, most of those shots didn’t really turn out. I…

Helicopter Fish Stocking – Part 2

As if I would go helicopter stocking and not bring a film camera. Wasn’t sure I’d actually have time to use it, but near the end of the day, I managed to run a roll of Kodak Portra 160 through the Pentax 6×7. Below are a couple shots that turned out. Camera: Pentax 6×7 Lens:…
