Early November Hiking in Caledon Part One.

I really have not done a whole lot of hiking this year. My hiking buddy has a lot going on her life both personal and a career wise so when I have been going out, it's by myself and that's ok there are times I need my alone time to think and to just get away for a few hours.

This is my last roll of ORWO UN 54 for now, I buy it in 100ft lengths and I have another can of it on order. In the mean time I'm revisiting Fomapan 200 which I used a few years back and found it an interesting black and white film to shoot with. I'll talk more about my experiences with the new film when I get a chance go out again and shoot. We're in that part of the year where daylight is disappearing fast and the weather is crappy, not quite fall anymore, not quite winter either.


Camera: Canon AE-1, FD 35 f2 lens (the one with the Thorium laced glass)

The 2014 Algonquin trip, The Model Post

As mentioned in a previous post we had two models come up with us to Algonquin Park this year. I have worked with both Alicia and Xenia in the past and they are both great. The last shoot we did was in the Beach in Toronto a year ago and had a totally different feel. I still have to work on the use of reflected light in Xenia's shot.


Camera: Nikon F2A, Nikkor Ais 50 f1.4 lens, 200 f4 lens on the last image.
Film: Kodak Portra 400

Going Back Home Along 35.

All great trips and long weekends have to come to an end at some point, while the trip back down 35 is uneventful, I have fallen in love with the  Muskoka and the Algonquin Highlands landscape and have to get back up here more often than once a year.

Camera: Nikon FE, Nikkor Ais 35 f2 lens.
Film: Kodak Portra 400.

Back to the Oxtongue Rapids

The difference a year makes. Last October it was a flat grey morning, this year bright sunshine and mid afternoon, lights the rapids differently, not to mention the fall colours are brighter.
