 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 […]

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 […]

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

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

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 […]

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

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! […]
