This week is a bit of a throwback, not to this project, but my first photography project! In my last year in High School, I took a Media English course that included a photography element. We learned how to process and print black & white film during the period, and the final project from that section had a photo project. I chose to work with documenting the churches in Milton.

Yes, church buildings have featured prominently in this project, and that should come as no surprise as many of the oldest buildings in town are churches.

Surrounded by glass skyscrapers and the massive mall, it’s a little piece of the 19th century that’s still making it known in the city. Providing helpRead More →

Churches is the theme for week 9, and what better way to capture churches especially the big ones in Toronto by slapping on my 14-24mm lens onto my Nikon F4.
