Cinestill 50D through Rokkor Lenses.

I love my black Minolta SRT 101 but it has an issue where it looks like there's vignetting at the very bottom of the frame. I know what the problem is, there's a light baffle behind the mirror that's a little loose. I don't have the finger dexterity to fix it, I'm getting a tech to look at it. The photos have been cropped in Lightroom so no one is the wiser.

Cinestill 50D, which is Eastman Kodak Vision 50D with the remjet removed. An interesting film to shoot with, of course, I choose to shoot on a day with very changeable light because hey, why not. Well, Cinestill 50D and Minolta Rokkor glass are made for each other, I've shot this film with Nikkor and Pentax SMC lenses over the years, I like what I got here. Sadly though Cinestill 50D isn't cheap in Canada, partly due to the exchange rate partly due to the film being expensive because of the remjet removal, pity.

Around Mono Cliffs

I needed time away from the computer screen so a drive and hike in the country was in order, I needed that. This Summer has been super hot and hiking isn't fun in 40+c temperatures with the humidex factored in.

Camera: Canon New F-1, FDn lenses.
Film: Kodak Tri-X 400, Xtol 1+1.

Leaving Parkdale for Sunnyside #2018TOPWrs

This is an interesting stretch of Queen Street, it is the very west end of Parkdale, King St. curves north and becomes Roncesvalles, and Queen St. becomes the Queensway. At the west end of King, there used to be the Sunnyside Train Station that served Grand Trunk and later Canadian National, it was closed in 1967 when GO Transit having took over commuter rail service decided not to serve that neighbourhood. One can wonder what Parkdale and Sunnyside would be like if GO Transit did stop there in 1967 onwards. The train station most likely would would have been preserved and Parkdale would not have declined in the 1970s. It would also affect the neighbourhoods to the north like Sunnyside and Roncesvalles Village, at this point it is pure speculation. GO Transit decided to stop at Exhibition instead.

Walking up into Roncesvalles is always fun, it reminds me a bit of the neighbourhood I grew up in Montreal, particulary when you go further up towards High Park Boulevard. I love walkable neighbourhoods like this, sadly something you don't see in the suburbs much. I have to come back here at some point this year before the snow comes.
