Uxbridge Ontario

I've always driven through Uxbridge but never had a chance to stop and look around. A lunch date gave me that excuse and I have come back up here at some point in the fall to explore some more and pay another visit to Second Wedge Brewing company.

Goodwin On, Durham Region

I haven't really strayed far from Oakville-Toronto this Summer, the weather has been awful hence very little from the countryside this year and no hikes. Shooting in the city is fun but I need a change of scenery on occasion.

I drove up to Uxbridge to drop some prints off and have lunch with my friend Spring Reilly who has been part of the annual Muskoka trip crew for the past few years. It also afforded me an opportunity to explore northeast of the GTA for the day.

Toronto Film Shooters Meet Up Part Two

Gerrard St. Between Broadview and Carlaw still has its grit, for now. Even then there are signs of change, a cool bar here, an indie coffee shop there, change is inevitable.

Toronto Film Shooters July Meet Up Part One

I belong to both the Toronto Film Shooters Facebook Group and the Film Shooters Collective and organized combined photo walk. We explored Chinatown East along Gerrard and then made our way down Carlaw and heading west on Queen through Leslieville ending up in Riverside for lunch. I traveled light and decided to shoot in colour with Kodak Portra 400. Thankfully the weather cooperated, as this is shaping up to be a very waterlogged Summer in Southern Ontario.
