#occupytoronto – Photo Blog

For a little over two months now, #occupy protests have been going on across North America and around the world. In recent weeks, much of the attention has shifted to whether or not the occupiers should be allowed to take up residence in public spaces, such as Saint James Park in downtown Toronto.

I have mixed feelings about the protests. Overall, I’m supportive of the movement and the principles that the occupiers stand for, at the same time, I really worry that right now, the message has gotten clouded by a fight about tents in the park, rather than the real issues at hand.

My New Camera!!!

My New Camera!!!

Well, here she is…¬†Yes, she is sparkly, gold and analog. 35 mm is back! Oh, and there’s no viewfinder. And it’s a fisheye lens. And it cost < $30.

It’s been a fun experience going back to my roots and doing some analog photography. No second chances since each shot you take uses up a frame of film. Such a huge change from my patterns, but I hope it has a positive influence on my digital photography as well (no more shooting 30 of the same picture just to hope for one good one!)

RMS Factory – Photo shoot

In March, 2011, I was given the unique opportunity to photograph the old RMS Factory. The factory was used for decades manufacturing rubber compounds and materials but the owners have now applied for a permit to tear the factory down. As we move from a manufacturing age, through the information age into the creative age, factories like this (in Kitchener Waterloo especially) are becoming a rare thing. Had a blast photographing it and even more fun in post processing doing a lot of HDR work with the images.
