42 windows, 2 doors

Here’s a shot from my walkabout downtown on Christmas day. Not many people out and about. Had the 23mm f2 (35mm eq.) on my Fuji X Pro 2 that day. I’m slowly getting used to that focal length. All in … Continue reading

Filmores Hotel

This is Filmores. It’s an old strip joint just east of Yonge Street, in Toronto. I’ve posted photos of it before, but this one’s a little different. You see, there used to be a big high rise hotel next door … Continue reading
