He sure has learned from his buddy Jason in Alberta, who somehow has managed to be even worse at 413 cases per 10000 vs the 333 per 10000 in Saskatchewan some of the worst numbers in the world.

A large proportion of our new cases are unvaccinated children as well 23 schools in toronto have active case investigations already
.... almost 70% of new cases are unvaccinated, and hospitalizations 81% are unvaccinated 86% if you include one shot . ICU cases 85% unvaccinated and 93% if you include 1 dose people
What is keeping our numbers somewhat in line is we kept a lot of measures in place. even as we re-opened areas. that said i see a lot less mask use now except indoors. the projections are sitting at 4000 a day by November if we don't change some factors

Our 7day average was just under 800, but given our much larger population it is less dire. Saskatchewan and in particular Alberta have been leading the way in showing us all how not to do it. Take care out there .
I am sitting here waiting to see who can no longer come to work on the 22 since we made employee vaccination follow same rules as members coming into the club (it is a fitness club —- and we already have members who managed to get hold of all the member emails and send out idiot anti vac anti mask nonsense to everyone.

I wish Ford would open up the option to get a third of pfiser or moderna to those of us who got double AZ here in Ontario, We were going to go to France this year to house hunt for retirement and had to cancel because they don't recognise the Indian AZ doses

Hi everyone,
Life has been hectic since spring with household renovations (that led of course to more work than planned) so I have been away from here a long while. barely shot anything since spring, on the weekend i did get out to Kensington Market and went to a book launch, took the GFX and the 110 f2 and got this (shot in Acros - this was just popped into my iPad and i pulled highlights marginally otherwise as shot)

Is anyone else excited about greater than 30 second manual exposures?

this is a useful feature and not just at night, when I shoot using 10 stop nd and stepped tight down to f18-22 on my GFX exposures calculate in minutes. the gfx lets you dial in specific times as well . (As does the Fuji XH1 so I assume the newer models all have it at Fuji - it is T mode instead of Bulb mode setting on those cameras, but however, it is implemented it is a great feature (I am guessing everyone has now implemented this idea)

no immigration issues no healthcare issues and less expensive housing. If I am going to make the move to europe the appeal of southern climates like sicily..... vs miserable winters in the midlands or scotland.....

I was going to replace the 6x6 around my front garden this year as they have really deteriorated. if will have to wait until next year lumber has skyrocketed 6x6 are $68 each this week ... 2x4s are $10. I did build a new vertical Planter but did it with upcycled wood from at skid no cost ...


Today I may bite the bullet on a Fuji X100V ..... trying to resist the offer

We have been told to upgrade the hydro service to a minimum of 100 preferably 200. All the major draw appliances are Gas it makes no sense but we will do it as part of a kitchen reno this summer' since code now specifies a slew os GFI plugs in a kitchen (so now I will be able to make toast and boil the kettle at the same time :)

Playing some catchup here, Nice to see all the great shots and the explosion of flowers. I've been uninspired lately, just getting tired of the last 6+ months of lockdown in Toronto, and the city has clearcut my favourite section along the river in preparation for a major closure as part of a project returning the area to a more natural flow that will have it closed for a year :( I am teetering on the edge of buying the x100V and selling My X100T and XE3 to pay for it ,..... I will need to find a different walk close to home to use it ( at least with spring here there are more people out - good and bad i guess since we have had a hard time with Covid recently to the level of needing a field hospital to add beds staffed by the army to deal with the ICU overflow that is stable enough to be in recovery space
Hopefully, as the vaccine rate increases and numbers come down we can start opening again in June, I do have a post-processing backlog so should get some done this weekend

Meanwhile here is one from a night walk with the GFX50r and the GF45-100 f4
