Downtown Toronto in October Part Two

Image
I have shot so often within the boundaries of University, Front, Yonge and Queen Streets in Toronto but never get tired because I'm always discovering something new to photograph or even something I've already documented but the circumstances have changed.


Camera: Olympus OM-2n, Zuiko 50 f1.8 lens.
Film: Ilford HP5 400, HC110 B.


















Downtown Toronto in October Part One

I love my Olympus OM-2n, I have a couple of them, one with a seized shutter, one headed down to the US for an overhaul with renowned Olympus repair tech John Hermanson and a perfectly functioning body which I used here.  Single digit Olympus OM bodies are great for travel, hiking and are compact enough to go into my briefcase when going downtown for meetings. I might use both my good OM-2n's next fall up in Algonquin to save weight.


Camera: Olympus OM-2n, Zuiko 50 f1.8 and Zuiko 28 f2.8 lenses.

Elora Gorge in the Fall

Image
I recently picked up a Nikon FM2n over a month ago, it's one of those workhorses that has a wide fan base in the analogue photography world and surprisingly held it's value in the used market. A trip up to Elora was a test run with this camera and as you can see it performed flawlessly. As for fall colours. Elora being on the shores of the Grand River has predominately cedars along it's banks, especially along the gorge.

It was a fun hike inside the conservation area and surprisingly quiet on a Saturday morning when I was up there with a friend. Sadly Elora the village is still struggling without the Elora Mill Inn open and is drawing only day visitors on weekends off season.

Going Home

All good long weekends up near Algonquin Park have to come to an end at some point. I miss the Muskoka region and I have to get back up there more often. Until next year....
