Toronto Photo Walks - March 5

   For the last couple of years, Paul Henman has organized the Toronto Photo Walks tours.  I joined a walk for the first time on March 5.

   The objective was to tour Riverdale Farm and the Toronto Necropolis.  I'll let Paul summarize it:

   "The wettest walk in quite a while, combined with large parts of the farm and cemetery being inaccessible because of ice, meant we cut the day very short and headed to the pub!"

   It was wet, cold and miserable.  Fortunately, the Vigilant Six-20 suffered no harm from the damp, and delivered great results.

   First off:  a  30-second time exposure from the 30th floor of the Minto Hotel in Ottawa:

Six-20: Instant Old

   The first roll from the Kodak Vigilant came back from the lab. Shot with cheap Chinese B&W film. Unexpectedly, all the pictures look like 70-year-old snapshots.

Light Tight Boxes

   You see, Santa left a couple of neat toys under the tree.

   My wife gave me this beauty:
