The old Bank of Montreal

It’s nice to see buildings like this still in existence and use here in Toronto, although we have lost a lot of them over the years, especially after the major downtown fire of 1904 that wiped out dozens of them … Continue reading

Fuji XPro3 at Kensington Market

So last week I was contacted by one of Toronto’s big camera store and asked if I’d be interested in doing a video review of the new Fujifilm XPro3 rangefinder style camera. Of course I jumped at the change. Last … Continue reading

100 University

Boy what a long weekend. I made it out for full walkabouts on all three days. Not sure how much I walked. Maybe 30 kms. Hard to say. Yesterday was Family Day here in Ontario, which is a holiday. I … Continue reading

Golden sunset kicking out long shadows

I shot this a couple of weeks back during a walkabout downtown. The one benefit of being downtown all the time is you learn where the light is happening at various times a day. It’s always all about the light, … Continue reading

Kensington Market at Dusk

Here’s a shot I snapped a week back at Kensington Market just after dusk. These sorts of shots tend to work best in colour, in my mind. Boy, that Fujifilm 18mm/f2 prime sure isn’t good at focusing in low light. … Continue reading
