May Day Trip to Niagara on the Lake, the Black and White Roll.

  Tourist season in Niagara on the Lake is ramping up once May rolls around, and the streets are getting busier. It was a 100 ISO kind of day and ran with ORWO UN 54 in my OM-1md and you can't go wrong with this combination.  Camera: Olympus OM-1md, Zuiko S lenses.  Film: ORWO UN54, D76 1+1. 

From Riverdale to Distillery District Part Two. Through Corktown.

Adox CHS 100 II is one of favourite medium speed black and white films, partly due to the old school look but also the 21st century polyester base that makes scanning so damn easy. Shooting through mechanical cameras is my preferance with this film, in this case my Nikon F2 fleet seems bring the best out of Adox CHS 100 II.  Rolling with an F2 was a good call, in this case the SB. I've been on a big F2 kick this spring and out of my Nikon fleet, it's one of my favourite cameras, I'll be pulling different ones out of my collection over the course of this spring and summer.  Camera: Nikon F2SB, Nikkor Pre Ai lenses.  Film: Adox CHS 100 II, FX-39 1+19. 

From Riverdale to Distillery District Part One.

 From the first of two May walks, we met up at Riverdale Perk on Logan in you guessed it Riverdale and after our caffine and baked goods hit, made our way down to the Distillery District by way of Corktown. It was  great turn out, and the weather for a photo walk was perfect.  I ran with a Nikon F2SB this photo walk along with the K series Pre Ai 50 F1.4 lens and was having some issues metering, the exposure was off by a stop or so, replaced the batteries and it was better. I find this lens works great on other F2s, Nikkormats even Fs but my SB, things get a little, strange. Any other 50mm lens. not a problem with metering, figure that one out. Camera: Nikon F2SB, Nikkor Pre Ai lenses.  Film: Adox CHS 100 II, FX-39 1+19.
