Game Time Inside the Rogers Centre

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XII – A Visit To Toronto’s Rogers Centre)

I recently was invited to attend an event at the Rogers Centre which included watching the Toronto Blue Jays (as you may have seen in my Snappy Friday teaser).  It was a great day to be out and enjoy a ball game too, although the skies were much more impressive the day before.  In the past few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with Penny, so I borrowed my son’s camera (a Pentax ME Super) to see what sort of photos I would get on this day.  Let’s just say, paired with my fisheye lens and a cheap 80-200 telephoto, I was left pretty impressed.  Enjoy the pics I have posted, within.

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XI – Fujifilm Velvia 100 and Killbear Provincial Park)

It goes without saying that I have a preference to 100 speed films.  So, when I spotted this roll of Velvia available at ASA 100, I didn’t hesitate to grab it.  My problem was that I didn’t know where to use it. Enter Killbear Provincial Park!  100 speed is my “comfort food” and the percentage of captures I grabbed using this film was, safe to say, higher than the Velvia 50.

Morning skies along the lighthouse trail, fisheye style! Killbear Provincial Park.
