 It’s been awhile since I added some new photos. Been busy with my graphic novel, and Dracula, and the patreon campaign most recently. Also, it looks like I’m going to be teaching a lot more, three days a week now. That’s going to introduce some new time management challenges for […]

Untitled-24
Happy #TBT. Here’s the next in this series [there will be a few!] covering the film Lionel shot at the The Toronto Pop Festival in 1969! This one has shots of a young looking Tiny Tim, some members of the Ronnie Hawkins band, playing while a 17-year-old Jeanne Beker dances her hart out in a yellow […]

Untitled-11
Happy late Throwback Thursday! I decided a while ago I would make this the standard posting day for the site here. Seemed fitting. I’ve got a few rolls from this show, though not all of them that Lionel took I think? We’ll see. This first scanned, is #5 of indeterminate. […]

AsEnvelop60s- (7)
  Assorted negatives in an Envelop from the late ’60s, some of them very damaged. Mostly the good stuff was ok though. Haven’t done anything other than scan them and put in the water mark. Been CRAZY busy with my own work, launched a new book! Doing lots of freelance, […]

This set is a little meta, in amongst the shots you can see contact sheets here and there, people looking at them, talking about them. I wonder what they are of. I’ll see if i can’t deduce it for later. Also a few great shots of a biker and his […]

Taking about photos



02-02I-27-on the island ferry-the Ongiara
Here’s a three rolls of film from what looks like sometime in the summer. Scenes from around Toronto. People hanging out in the Beaches. The Island faeries and on the island with a dog. Children and older folks out and about in what I think are parts of Cabbage town. John McNeily and […]

106 photos of summer

Somewhere by the side of the road in southern Ontario Lionel and Arna pulled over and took these photos. The one of Arna in profile standing in a slight wind is really striking. Some really nice shots of the landscape too, I love the texture of the grass. I’ll have to […]

Landscapes and the ladies of Berkeley street

Couple of rolls of photos of what i think is mostly Toronto in the summer. I have this lens still, along with a 28 wide angle for my Nikon F. It’s a bit crappy now though. Some of the few bits of camera equipment I’ve been able to hang on to. I was supposed to get it all, […]

Summer in the city


02-02-C14-birdonthewater
Not really sure if it is a quarry, looks like one. Ian Arna and Lionel going for a dip somewhere. Another shot of Arna and Lionel in happier times together. One of the nicest things about going through these old shots is finding those. I wonder who’s taking them when he’s in the frame. Ian […]

The streets and swimming in the Quarry



contactsheetA-02-02B
This is a big interesting set. I think it’s all one roll, hard to be sure. It’s mostly of what i think is the streets of Downtown Toronto. Will try to find out and ad that info here when i do. But the really interesting thing about these shots are […]

Streets and People


John McNeily with a pipe
Along with all the negatives, there are a few prints printed by Lionel i assume, in some cases mounted on boards. Scanned them tonight, an interesting selections of images. Some of the prints were in rough shape. cleaned up a few things but mostly left them as is. I’m using these as […]

Assorted old prints from the Trunk

Some more shots of Arna, kittens, and folks at Berkeley street, also looks like a gimps at the garage on the first floor. Some photos of a fair, people playing bingo. The CNE maybe? And kids, smoking a pipe? Lionel loved kids, there are a lot of shots of kids playing in the […]

Cats Kids Bingo and Berkeley Street

Of course i can’t be sure, maybe he shot these, put the camera down, and then picked up the day of the landing. Or maybe it was in the other order. But it looks like this roll was shot the day Apollo 11 touched down on the moon. Arna, my […]

Sometime after July 20, 1969


02-01C-contactsheet
This is a nice set. My mother is in some of them, getting dressed in the first place she and Lionel lived in together. She was an art student at OCA and an artists model. I have a great story to post later about how they met… “This is before Rochdale, before you! […]

contactsheet-02-01B
Scanned another sheet tonight. These were it seems from the same set as the last, or are just unmarked. I’ve called them 02-01B for now. They are from 1969 as well. Looks like he was a little sloppy rinsing his negatives early on, there’s some streaking from developer left on them when they were hung to […]
