More poetry! About half way though the folder now, here’s a few more, 30 to be exact. One is a draft of a poem that appeared in the book, the rest i think are unpublished and predominately hand written.

Landscapes and the ladies of Berkeley street
Landscapes and the ladies of Berkeley street

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 ask if the 1952 Pontiac was […]

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.

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 the people.

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 a rough rule of thumb […]
