As the title suggests, here’s a compilation of the two images from the entire project:52. Think of this as a teaser…for the book, which if all goes according to plans should be out by mid to late spring. 01: Squeal Like a Wage Slave Pentax 645 – Lomography X-Pro 200 02: Toronto’s Castle Nikon F4 – Fuji Acros 100 03: Of Winter Drives and Small Towns Nikon F3 – Lomography X-Pro 100 04: Feelin’ Blue Contax G2 – Kodak Portra 160NC 05: We’ll Cross that Bridge… Nikon F4 – Ilford SFX200 06: Smile!

The Numbers match. I can’t believe it, fifty-two weeks of analog, an entire year, 365 images posted to the blog for the project…I feel…sucessful, I actually did it. Yet, oddly sad the project is done. In it’s own way, it was…fun, not a burden. So to end it off I ventured out into the cold night and wandered through downtown Milton, had to give my hometown the final spot in the project. Milton’s downtown features all those wonderful late 19th century early 20th century buildings and thankfully many still standing however there are a lot still missing. Being Christmas Eve I took in some decorationsRead More →

I just had to bring it back before the end, something abandoned. In this case I am dragging you to one of my personal favourite locations, the Barber Mill in Georgetown Ontario, but unlike many of my trips, I took a chance and went at night. The Mill was built in 1823 but abandoned for several decades now. The ruins are beautiful at any time of day and in any weather. Dangerous…yes, but worth the risk.

Finding myself back in Ohio I took a break from the long drive home to stop off in the city of Findlay, home of the university where we had a day earlier gone to a Polaroid Party. I had seen the downtown from the photos taken during the FPP mid-west meetup a meetup I sadly was unable to attend, so I made a point to stop off this time. Spent some time at Imagine That, and even ran into a friend and inspiration Mat Marash while enjoying lunch at a local pub. Nikon F4 – AF Nikkor 35mm 1:2D – Kodak Portra 160Read More →

Having moved back up the Hill to the main Trafaglar Road campus of Sheridan, I decided to let one of the more photogenic of the four campuses be the subject for Week 49 (only fair since STC got to be the subject for Week 1). So to add some flare, I used polaroid cameras to capture the campus. Of course the Auto 250 got the most attention.

For the past ten years Milton churches have been putting on a living christmas pagent I have been several times, and even volunteered to be a person in the pagent. So for the tenth year I decided to take my Bible Study group along and a film camera for Week 48! So let’s take the journey to tell the story of the birth of Jesus.

I love backroads and sunday afternoon drives and taking the senic route. Sure it may take you a little bit longer to get there, but sometimes the journey is more important than the destination. So coming home from a party I decided to load up the newest member of my camera family with some film and took the long, stupid, and conviluted route home, just to see what I could see.

Steel Town The Hammer Hogtown Tiger Town Whatever you call it, we’re talking about Hamilton, Ontario. Ever since I started up this project I wanted to include this city in the project but for some reason or another it just slipped through the cracks. But on a day when I actually found myself in the city, I realized that now, near the end, that time to feature Hamilton was here. I mostly stuck in the downtown area, which is only a small slice of the city, but a slice that I spent many nights, during the early days of my exploring, since you could hitRead More →

Excuse me, but have you seen Bob? This neat little worldwide photo project seemed to grab my attention so for week 45 I took my “Bob” along and photographed him in and around the area during my errands, mostly through Hamilton’s downtown. Needless to say I got a couple strange looks as I photographed this cardboard character in various spaces. Some people even wanted to know what I was doing, so I happily explained, some continued to give me the strange looks while others thought it was kinda cool. No, Bob hasn’t been around since 1958, but Burlington Camera has, and they even had theRead More →

I’m not often one who will get a new camera and throw it into a project that has been going very well, and hoping that I’ll get something decent. I usually test out the cameras first. But when I was given a Lomo Smena 8m from Michael Raso of The Film Photography Project it must be a good camera. And well the manual was all in Russian so I just launched right into using it. The results were…interesting. I carried it with me over the course of Sunday errands so there’s really no rhyme or reason to the images, they’re shot straight from the hipRead More →
