¿La playa? ¡No necesariamente!

Resort towns don’t always have tons to offer beyond the beach. That’s not always true… if you look, there’s always something eye-catching to see.

This is why I’m happy I brought my trusty X100F with me to Cancún before Christmas.

Toronto the wet

It’s always good to have a few hours to kill, camera in hand. Yesterday was one of those days… I had to drive my son to Toronto for a sports event (where parents were verboten) and that meant I had the day to myself. Met up with my good friend Bruce for lunch, and then ventured out on a cold, miserable, rainy photowalk in Cabbagetown (a funky neighbourhood east of downtown) and into downtown.

No agenda, no preconceptions, just a few hours, my weather resistant X-Pro3 and an umbrella.

All images shot with the awesomely weather-resistant X-Pro3 and XF35mmF2 combo, processed with the new Classic Negative film sim in Capture One.

The apartment building

Apartment living isn’t for everyone, but every city has its share of apartment buildings.

Ottawa is no exception. Although there are more and more shiny new high-rise condos and apartment building popping up, Ottawa’s apartment scene is dominated by older buildings with a certain sense of charm (or total lack thereof).

I’ve decided to take it upon myself to start documenting the vintage Ottawa apartment building, no matter how large or small, charming or charmless, in any neighbourhood around town. This post is the first in a series of who-knows-how-many.
