This is a roll I shot with my second Nikon F one afternoon back in early November in Kensington Market, not holiday themed but some great shots. I was there to meet a woman I hooked up with on an online dating service that shall remain nameless. Well...the date went nowhere and the woman in question was not comfortable with my present life circumstances and bailed. My situation is not unique, I am not going to rant here about being single in Southern Ontario and navigating dating scene that can be best described as shallow, it's a waste of energy. Lets just say all I want for Christmas is a new girlfriend preferablely with a fondness for shooting with older Nikon gear:).

Ok an epic upload of photos, I had to split them up. I have been using my Olympus
OM-1 which is a jewel of a camera with lens optics that rival Nikon's. Some of these photos look great, some look a little dark from the scanning. I really did not feel like farting around editing them. I am amazed at how well this camera does in low light situations especially in the previous post with the Senator. I had the lens wide open at 1.8 and the lens speed below 1/30 of a second. I am amazed it was sharp as it was.

I have been negligent in updating the photoblog, call it busy with life. Here are some shots I took last Chirstmas with my Nikkormat Ftn with nikkor 50/1.4, I was using Delta 400 from Ilford. I really like the Christmas tree lot shot with the "Real Trees for Real People" sign. I am going to be busy until the 19th of December so hang tight for the next update.

Took these a about two weeks ago one Sunday afternoon, loaded up some Fuji 100 asa colour negative Superia into my Nikkormat Ftn and went to Old Oakville to shoot the fall colour, there are some more shots to come but I will get around to them later.

A quick post here, I was testing out a Christmas present a Carl Zeiss Jenna 50/2 Sonnar lens for my Contax IIIa with some Agfa Black and White film 400asa. The photos were taken around the old part of Oakville about a month ago. There will be more taken in Kensington Market next post, stay tuned and do not adjust your set.

This is when an afternoon of shooting goes well. I used my Pentax S1a with the Super Takumar 50/1.4 and 35/3.5 lenses and I ran with Fuji Superia 100 asa colour. I was test driving a Pentax meter made for the Pre- Spotmatic SLRs and it rode on top of the prism, a rather elegant solution from its day. I am happy with the results here. I wish it were all like this, I am tossing out a roll today because, I rushed and found out it did not advance properly. My luck of the draw.
