I rather enjoy these little made up holidays and events for the photographic community. And you can thank the Internet for all this enjoyment and global networking that takes place. The brains behind World Film Photography Day is Lomography and while I didn’t bring out any of my toy cameras, the unsettled weather of late here in Southern Ontario I took out my Minolta Maxxum 9 with a newly acquired 50mm f/1.7 lens, and a fresh roll of Retro 400s. So no matter what condition the weather would throw me I’d be ready. Not wanting to waste too much time I headed down to my usual lunch-hour haunt, the historic downtown Oakville. The rain hadn’t started yet but the clouds were rolling in, so I took the chance and headed out early. I’m pretty happy with my results, so I won’t bore you with any more text and just get onto the photos. I did run into my good friend Bill Smith who was also on the tail end of his own World Film Photography Day adventure.
Mind you, everyday I go out and photography, there’s a good chance it’s film photography day.
