Mortal Combat.

This happens on Toronto streets all the time.


Mortal Combat

Her new glasses.

No golden hour light, no clever composition, no subtle symbolism.

Just a simple image of her… for us.

For posterity.

Window Light Portrait (Film).

This is a second test shot with the Leica 35/2 v1 (8 element), this time on the M3.

Please forgive the repetitive nature of these test images, but it is important for me to observe the behaviour of different equipment under similar circumstances.

On a related note, I’ve pretty much decided to abandon film (again)… there are more and more obstacles making it difficult for me to continue working with it.

Dinner Theatre (in 3 Acts).

People often ask me why I always go back to the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm f/1.4.

This is why.



Evening Repose.

One of the initial test images with my newly acquired Leica M3.

Longing Look.

Echo, echo.

As an aside, this represents the 5th “test shot” taken with my new-old M3.  As you can tell, most of the test shots were made under awful incandescent lighting (after all, I was only interested in confirming focus accuracy).

Still, there’s something about film and the way it renders even poorly lit scenes.

Sunshine Bear and C.

And the Infinite Hug.

C’s Comics (Bedtime Imprints).


The frame-by-frame play-by-play of life.

Her imprints left on the table, and in my mind.

And imprints #22 and # 23 on a roll of film — click, click.

And the click of a light switch.
