Downtown Toronto in Colour

I love shooting with my oldest Nikon F, it belonged to my dad and dates from late 1960 if I got the serial number right. This never came with an on board light meter so I used a hand held Sekonic L398a and never get a bad exposure. Of course silly me forgot my lens hoods for both the the 28mm and 24mm lenses so I got some flare to contend with. At one point I would have been freaking out with that, now I've made piece with some imperfection.

Of course I decide to do some street photography with colour film just to be different. One thing that really surprised me as how quiet it was on a late Monday afternoon in early June.

Camera: Nikon F, Nikkor H 28 f3.5 lens, Nikkor N 24 f2.8 lens.
Film: Fuji Pro 400H

Forks of the Credit



Forks of the Credit Provincial Park is about an hour's drive northwest of Toronto near Belfountain Ontario and gets its name from where the East and West Credit Rivers meet up. Walk up Dominion Street you will come across Brimstone, formerly a village of "hard living" limestone miners over a 100 years ago, now a collection of cottages and weekend retreats along the East Credit River. From there I walk into the park along the Dominion Trail.

This is one of my favourite places to unwind for a few hours. Where will I be hiking this weekend?

Panorama Photo: iPhone 5S with the Google Snap-Seed app.

Everything Else:
Camera: Leica M4-2, Canon 50 f1.4 LTM lens, Voightlander 35 f2.5 lens.
Film: Ilford HP5 400, HC110 B.
