Into the Park Drive Reservation Lands, Toronto

I got my black Olympus OM-2n back from John Hermansonn of Zuiko.com fame, the meter was jumpy and that got fixed with an overhaul. The camera now shoots better than new and will get a lot of use this year. If you are a single digit  Olympus OM shooter, in particular the OM-2(n), 3(Ti) and 4(Ti), Zuiko.com is pretty much the only game in North America I'm aware that can fix these cameras to factory specs. Even with the Canadian dollar hovering around .75 USD when I paid for my overhaul, it was worth every penny.

Now I want to share an urban gem in Toronto, the city of ravines, it starts in Craigleith Gardens in Rosedale and tracks northwest towards St. Clair and Mt Pleasant Cemetery further beyond. The Park Dr. Reserve lands and David A. Balfour Park along Yellow Creek cuts between Rosedale and Moore Park with a natural oasis in the middle of the city. Now if you're truly ambitious, you can cut through the cemetery and pick up the Kay Gardiner Beltway park and walk all the way to the Eglington West Subway Station. My friends and I weren't once reaching St. Clair, we turned south for dinner walking all the way back to the financial district.

Camera: Olympus OM2n, Zuiko MC 50 f1.8 lens, Zuiko 24 f2.8 lens.
Film: Ilford HP5 400, HC110 B.
