That one looks like the Hammer - adjacent to the Sirloin Cellar. It's a great spot for making photos.
I'll have to recheck the roll, but pretty sure it's in Oshawa, since it's bracketed by shots in the auto museum (a couple of which I posted recently).

Some expired Agfa Optima. I've done a bit of colour correction, as the original displayed a noticeableable orange colour shift. (While the shift was not as bad as the rolls of Agfa HDC I shot last year, it would appear that orange is the hue that expired Agfa colour films from the late-90s/early-2000s tend to gravitate towards.)

Continuing with the colour correction: this is from a roll of Film Photography Project RetroChrome 160 that my local shop gave me to try out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I love them?)

In reality it's government surplus Ektachrome that's expired but was cold-stored. Daylight balanced, but this entire roll came out so blue you'd think it was tungsten film. This was one of the few salvageable shots from the bunch; though even with colour correction it's a bit on the blue side.

I've got a second roll, and I'm going to try shooting it with a KR15 filter in order to see if things turn out better.



Canon AE-1.
Unknown Canon (new) FD lens.
(35-105/3.5, perhaps? Or maybe 28/2.8? I lost the book that had my notes for this roll.)
FPP RetroChrome 160.

Nope you were right, it is Hamilton. I shot it on the stylus which I use relatively infrequently and a roll will often span 3 or 4 shoots plus random one-off shots (it's my walking around camera I always have with me). This one has at least 6 different locations from Hamilton to Spadina to around the corner. And Oshawa car museum (because of the flash).

Yeah I also find that with expired transparencies. The expired Agfachrome I'm playing with is also heavily blue tinged and not that easy to clean up. Even fresh 1970's area slide film always had a bit if a blue cast in some scenes, so a Skylight filter was always required. (Cloudy filters were also good).

I'm also using an 85B (KR15) filter for the Kono Kolorit 125T Tungsten film I'm experimenting with.

By the looks of it, you may do OK shooting under tungsten light.

Wow, I remember how back in the fifties in South Africa, nearly all motorcycles were British. Do you remember "James" for example? Norton and Triumph were very common. Didn't BSA stand for British Small Arms?

Yep. Thought of that too; I just so rarely shoot inside, let alone 24 frames worth.

I'm still nibbling away at the films and slides dredged up from the basement. These four are 1983 Fuji slides, three from Ibiza and the last from Pippa's first trip to Canada. All K1000, 50/1.8, Nikon 9000 scans (I can't be bothered to dismount them for the X1!):



















That Olympus PenFT and its crazy 1970's strap rarely left her hands.
