Jimi Hendrix Experience @ Maple Leaf Gardens Pt 3

February 27, 2012

The last roll of shots from the historic Jimi Hendrix Experience show [see pt1 and pt2 here]. Also at the end of the roll shots back stage i think, with Hendrix’s guitar? Might be, and a few at the Berkeley street loft, of Arna and Ian.

Taking about photos

April 30, 2011

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 dismantled ride, some pretty ladies […]

106 photos of summer

April 6, 2011

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 Arna at the Berkeley stree loft, […]

A haircut at Libby’s

April 2, 2011

Most of these shots, i think were probably taken by Ian Argue. Looks like Arna Lionel and he visiting Lionel’s mother, Libby. My grandmother. Also two shots in someone’s kitchen, not sure where. Might not even be from the same roll, they are not on the contact sheet but were in the negative sleeve with the others.

Landscapes and the ladies of Berkeley street

March 27, 2011

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 […]

Summer in the city

March 15, 2011

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, but an older relative claimed to want […]

The streets and swimming in the Quarry

March 7, 2011

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 some of the time i […]

Cats Kids Bingo and Berkeley Street

February 25, 2011

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 collection. I remembered when the ice cream […]

Sometime after July 20, 1969

February 24, 2011

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 mother is there so perhaps […]

Over a truck and billboard painting factory on Berkeley Street

February 22, 2011

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! The first place we lived […]
