As the title suggests, here’s a compilation of the two images from the entire project:52.

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 →

Well we’re coming up to the end of 2011, and what a year it has been, with the Project:52 winding down, the the last rolls sitting here on my desk waiting to be taken into the lab on Monday. 2012, big things for this year including 2 special projects. Sorry no Project:52 for 2012 (it may return for 2013), but 2012, big year indeed. The first project is about the War of 1812, 200 years ago between the United States of America and the British Empire. Titled “Everything Changes,” it will cover as much about the war of 1812 as I can possible get forRead 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 →

The year was 1994, March. An electrical failure causes one of hte trains on Toronto Zoo’s Domain Ride to roll backwards hitting a second vehicle injuring thirty people, and forcing the Zoo to shut down the Domain Ride, ending 30 years of the ride giving tours through some of the more remote areas of the Toronto Zoo which streached well out and along the Rouge River, which visitors could not walk to. But on this cold December Saturday we were forced to. The six of us crept down the steep grade to the river banks and made our way along looking for the concrete guideway.Read 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.
