Black and White


In yesterday’s post I mentioned the photo walk I took on Sunday. I’m making an effort to get out of my box a little (and get out of my house a lot more), which led me to join a local photography group on While many of the events (model shoots, etc.) don’t really appeal to me the idea of a photo walk really did. I really enjoy hanging out and shooting with other photographers. The problem is that most of my photography friends live in other cities. It was nice to get out with other people and do some shooting*. I travelled light and brought just my digital with a 50mm lens and my SX-70. These shots are from the SX-70 and Impossible Project PX100 film. I don’t shoot a lot of black and white as I’m so drawn to colour in what I see but it was nice to focus on form and light.

*I’m still not planning to attend any of the nude model shoots (creeper alert!!)

I’m participating in the August Break. Join us?

    These are lovely. That first shot reminds me of summers at the lake. 🙂

    Great shots! They look so retro. The first picture especially looks like a shot from the 70s, and brings to mind simpler times and lazy summer days. Love it.
    Following you over from the August Break Flickr group. I see you’re from Ottawa. I live three hours west of there. Always nice to meet a fellow Canadian! Looking forward to seeing more of your pictures. 🙂
