The Wood Witch

“Lend me your ear while I call you a fool.
You were kissed by a witch one night in the wood…”

Desirée, looking rather pagan as she stands in an autumn wood on the Bruce Trail near Cheltenham. This is from my second roll of the Shanghai GP3. The negatives have faint vertical scratches, which I suspect occur when the paper backing is removed. Still, worth the $2.88 per roll I paid. Taken on the Seagull 4B1.

End of the Hunt

End of the Hunt

I went exploring the Hamilton Cemetery earlier this week, still shooting with the cheap Shanghai GP3 film. It leaves artifacts, but I like it. Also, black and white photos of tombstones? What I am, a 14 year old girl?

Happy Tree Friends

Happy Tree Friends

This is a photo of a happy willow tree, and not a churning, crawling mass of faces trapped in a tree trunk, no matter what Picasa’s face recognition software thinks.

I shot my first roll of incredibly cheap “Shanghai GP3” 120 film. This stuff sells on eBay for 1/3 the cost of Ilford film. There are some quality issues. Each roll has a couple of tiny patches of damage where the paper backing pulled away during development. But the grain is sharp, and most of the dust and specks visible can be blamed on my habit of keeping the Seagull TLR in the trunk of my car. I’m pleased, and will keep buying for use as “walking around” film.

Suddenly Unicorn

Suddenly Unicorn

Frosh week at McMaster University, the one week where uni students drink in the streets and cross-dress and block traffic and no one cares. Well, no one cares much. I got trapped by the Frosh Parade, and snapped this accidental double exposure of revelers.
