52:500c – Week 37 – Shaken, Not Stirred

There’s nothing better than after a day of just inclement weather to have a beautiful day to get out and do some shooting! So I took off to one of my favourite spots in Toronto, the Distillery District. After recording some episodes of Classic Camera Revival, and waiting for Heather to be done at a Bridal shower for a mutual friend I had some time to kill. The crowds had gathered, and there was plenty of activity milling about the old buildings of Gooderham & Worts.

The Historic Distillery District is relatively new to the city as an adaptive reuse project that has spread to some of the old rundown industrial areas of Toronto like Liberty Village and The Junction, breathing new life into these regions that even up into the 1990s sat empty and abandoned. Now that would have been fun to see (let me get a TARDIS for a sec). So to see them now bustling with people is wonderful! Sadly it was only a short visit for me, pop in, fire off the twelve frames and get out. Totally worth it!

On a technical note, it’s great to have a Gossen Lunasix F meter again. My old unit kicked the bucket after a repair effort went wrong. Thanks to the excellent staff at Burlington Camera for catching one and pimping it out for me, case, box, manual, and spot meter attachment! I will certainly be playing with the spot meter attachment in later weeks!
