One Camera and One Lens

 The post begins and ends at the same intersection. Purists are going to go nuts that someone would use a non Leica lens on a Leica M body in this case an M-39 Canon 50 F1.8 lens that would have been at home on either a Canon P or a 7 in the 1960s. I love Leica Screw Mount Canon glass, would love to find a Nikkor H.C. 50 F2 lens at some point. Going with just one lens and camera shooting reduced decision making.  The film of choice was Fomapan 400 because I was looking for some retro goodness to channel the streetscapes both Friday afternoon with the contrasty November sunshine and Sunday with the dismal dirty white T-shirt left in the Line One Subway tunnel just north of Eglington Station skies. Finally got around to rolling some more up from my bulk roll for future weekends.  Camera: Leica M4-2, Canon LTM 50 F1.8 lens.  Film: Fomapan 400, Ilfotec HC 1+31. 

Black and White in the Beaches.

 Killing time later afternoon before Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner a month ago. Camera: Nikon N90S, Nikon AF-D 28-105 F3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens.  Film: Fomapan 400, Ilfotec HC 1+31. 

Midtown Toronto, Frugal Film Project Installment for November

For those who have never been to Toronto, it's a big city, really big, and spread out. Midtown historically would have been sorta round Yonge and Bloor, now it stretches from Davisville up to almost Lawerance Park and around Yonge St. and Eglington is fast becoming a neighbourhood of highrise apartment and condo towers, displacing older apartment buildings and offices that were built in the 1960s. Even Cnaada Square, home to Canadian Tire's corporate headquarters and the studios for TVO have been chosen as a site for redevelopment at some point. That's an insane thought a two tower office complex is slated for redevelopment even though you have long term tenants (large Canadian hardware retailer and a publicly owned broadcaster). That's insane.  Camera: Nikon N90S, Nikon AF-D 28-105 F3.5-4.5 Zoom Lens.  Film: Kodak Ultramax 400.
