Skiing is my winter sport and I have not been doing enough of it due to school, work and uncooperative weather. Not a good combination, but what can you do? Get out on the good days,this was one of them. I took up my OM-1 on a whim and used a Yellow filter on most of the shots and the film used was Ilford Fp4 125 asa.

As threatened, a new and improved Bronte Photo essay taken with an Olympus OM-1 and Ilford FP4 125 film on a really cold day like -11 before the windchill is factored in. These buildings will be razed come spring time, I used to bike down here for ice cream cones when I was a teen and early twenties. Architecturally the buildings are nothing special but having personal landmarks wiped out with more regularlity is disconcerting. In Ontario there are a lot of buildings worthy of histroical designation that are just being torn down by developers because of the value of the land. What replaces the architectural treasures is downright criminal in architectural mediocraty. This is a subject for a further photo eassy the neighbouhood of Forest Hill in Toronto is having this problem losing their Arts and Crafts mansions for something a lot more tacky. Please stay tuned for further images.

A single photo of my nephew Marcus. This was taken at Christmas dinner with my Contax IIIa with 400 asa Fuji Superia with available light. Marcus moves pretty fast so getting photos are becoming a challenge for his uncle (me).

A colour photo session on a very unusally warm Saturday January . I was using my ContaxIIIa with a Carl Zeiss 50/2 Sonnar with Fuji asa 100 Superia film. This has to be one of the few things outside of my PR program that went right that weekend. I was supposed to meet up with someone for a lunch date, she pulled out at the last minute and has since disappeared. I will not get into the details, needless to say I was disapointed as I was looking forward to it. Why? who knows, I know I won't be getting the whole story.

What an odd winter this as been, it was colder in December than in January. I took this a week before Christmas and it was about I think -15c with the windchill. I took these photos in Yorkville with a Kiev III with a Jupiter 8 lens. FSU cameras can take the cold. Shortly I will contrast with some January Photos taken last weekend when on Saturday it was +10c. Please stay tuned.
