Weekend in Toronto

Last weekend we had nothing planned, so when a last minute invite to hangout in Toronto presented itself, we jumped at it. We spent the evening out for dinner with both families and the next morning at High Park wandering around the zoo and play castle. I brought down my Voigtlander Bessa R3M and an…

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…

Toronto Walkabout

Two weeks ago I was in Toronto taking a course for work. I was staying right downtown and was able to get out for a quick photo walk with my Yashica MAT-124 and a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400. I was pretty happy with how most of the shots came out. Camera: Yashica MAT-124…

Back in mid-December, I took a vacation day from work and spent the day shooting in downtown Toronto with my good friend Paul. We spent the morning shooting in and around Kensington Market (photos in a later post), before grabbing lunch and heading down to Harbourfront. We even used the new tunnel over to the…

Double Exposure Challenge

This project is something I’ve heard about before and have wanted to try out for some time. I approached my good friend Paul and asked if he’d be interested in doing a double exposure challenge. The premise is pretty straight-forward. Run the same roll of film through two cameras to create multiple exposure images. Paul…
