We organized an Oakville Camera Club outing for Spencer Gorge near Hamilton this past Sunday morning. Armed with a Nikon FM and neutral density filters to slow things down, I got the photographs below. I took a different approach this time out not focusing on Webster's Falls (which is over photographed), instead looking at the fast water as a source of inspiration. There's more to come when I get the test roll of Ektar 100 processed.

Welcome to Spring for real this time. We had a cold snap earlier this week and Southern Ontarians let out a collective groan with the 48 hour return of wind-chill and flurries. Thankfully that is out of the system and we're back on track with spring.

I went really old school and shot with the older of two Nikon F's I own with Kodak Plus X 125 processed in D76 1+1 dilution around Old Oakville. I love how the tonality just pops out with this film and I get a nice period feel which is the objective.
