It feels wrong posting a review for Acros 100 in light of the recent news about the film’s demise at the hands of Fujifilm. But I would also feel this series of reviews incomplete without it included. One of my favourite black and white films from Fuji (which isn’t saying much there was only a handful). Bright, sharp, and with next to no reciprocity failure (you can expose the film up to 22 minutes before needing to adjust your exposure time to compensate). While I didn’t use the stock much, I did get to use it abandoned buildings where the long-exposure capacity can help outRead More →

At your first glance, you see this Soviet Styled space-age packaging, and you know you’re in for a treat. In full disclosure, Mono 100 is not a new film stock, it is repackaged Fomapan 100 with the times adjusted to fit the reseller’s personal choices to get the best results. When I first learned that Kosmo Foto was working towards releasing a brand new film I jumped. And while I know today that film is just Fomapan 100, I still buy it on occasion because I like to support a fellow Alliance Member, and that Soviet-Style box art is just fantastic.

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.

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 →

Taken advantage of a free Saturday afternoon I finally wandered around downtown Georgetown armed with my favourite Camera, the Rolleiflex, and photographed downtown. Rolleiflex 2.8F Carl Zeiss Planar 80mm 1:2.8 Kodak TMax 100 (TMX)Read More →
