Walking Along Queen St. East

Image
When I was at my brother's in the Beaches, I decided to hop the 501 streetcar and stop by Downtown Camrea for a film top up. I wanted some Ultrafine Extreme but they were pretty much out so I settled on some Fomapan 400. This was the first time I hopped onto public transit since the pandemic began and while I don't suffer from anxiety, the ride to Church and Queen Streets had me on edge. I decided to walk back to my brother's place. Yes I got my steps in but it was a weird walk from Downtown Camera to the Don River, I kept my camera in the camera bag. By the time I reached the border between Corktown and Riverside I felt more relaxed and did some shooting. Bergger Pancro 400's grain accentuated the gloom and humidty that day, by the time I got back to my brother's the skies opened up and the rain really came down. Truthfully I should have just pushed some HP5 or Ultrafine Extreme 400 to 1600 and gone from there. Things didn't shake out that way.

On a Muggy August Day in the Beaches

The irony talking about a cloudy and muggy mid August day at the beginning of Fall isn't lost on me. I shot a ton of photos while at my brother's place. This was my friend John Meadows would call Mekong Delta hot and muggy. While I was out for my walk it started raining because the air was so water logged. You can feel it in photos.
