Did you see the page I did for the Brownie Hawkeye Flash Outfit? I'm planning to do more like this for my other cameras. I thought about doing an animation of each camera spinning, showing a 360 degree view but realised that might fall a tad too far into the realm of object fetishism.
On Sunday we biked over to Trinity Bellwoods Park for the Portuguese festival. There is a church at Dundas and Grace that is adorned with lights that I like to take pictures of. It was a little boring this year but at the park they had a full-on carnival with rides, games and a crooning Enrique Iglesias type singing to an unbelievably crazed crowd of teenage girls. The screaming was so intense it sounded canned. "This is the hardest part of my job right here... Choosing just ONE lovely lady to bring up on stage with me."
Sadly there were no lights on the rides but I did try to take some photos of a ball-toss game with my new Spartus Full-Vue using the time setting and 800 asa film. It was total guesswork so we'll see if anything comes out.
We rode our bikes to the festival down the back alleys. Riding down back alleys at night is one of my favourite things to do in the city. I like the way portions of walls and wierd corners are illuminated by spotlights and how you can sail and glide without worrying about being doored or crushed by a streetcar. I like to go downhill standing up with my ass off the seat.
