Photowalk through the Bridgepoint Hospital and Riverdale Park East. Abstract shapes and colours.

Toronto Photowalk – October 2023 – Riverdale Farm, Toronto Necropolis, Riverdale Park East

Photowalk details:

Date: Octo­ber, 2023

What a dif­fer­ence a month makes! Just com­pare the weath­er evi­dence in the pho­tos from my Toron­to pho­towalk in Sep­tem­ber to the con­di­tions depict­ed below.

Loca­tion: We met at 2 p.m. at the west gate of Riverdale Farm (near the bike lock posts). From there, we explored the farm and pho­tographed the res­i­dent ani­mals. After­wards, we head­ed across the street to explore the Toron­to Necrop­o­lis for its creepy vibes. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it was large­ly over­cast, and the light was dull except for a short minute. Our next stop was Bridge­point Hos­pi­tal and its grounds, a mix of new and old archi­tec­ture. It’s across the Don Val­ley, so we crossed the pedes­tri­an bridge over the Don Riv­er and the DVP. After the hos­pi­tal, we walked north Broad­view Ave towards the top of the hill over­look­ing the park. The dull weath­er sapped all the cheer, and the typ­i­cal­ly bustling hill­side was large­ly devoid of peo­ple. The sun was behind dense clouds, and we quick­ly gave up wait­ing to take sun­set pho­tos. We returned via the DVP bridge. Octo­ber­s’s pho­towalk did­n’t have a theme.

Below are some pictures I captured during this photowalk. Most photos were taken with my Fujifilm XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR and XF 16–55mm F2.8 R LM WR lenses.

Photowalk through Toronto's Riverdale Farm. Calf with green nose ring.
A calf with a spiked plas­tic nose ring. I sus­pect it’s spikey to dis­cour­age suck­ling from the adult cow with which it shares the enclo­sure. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. 1/400 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 320.

Same calf, dif­fer­ent angle. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. 1/400 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 320.
Photowalk through Toronto's Riverdale Farm. Relaxing lambs.
Riverdale Farm has two enclo­sures for sheep. This is the south­east por­tion. I shot it using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. The set­tings were 1/210 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 640.

This perky sheep is in the north­ern enclo­sure. I shot it using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. The set­tings were 1/2500 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 640.
Photowalk through Toronto's Riverdale Farm. Hens in the chicken coop.
Chick­ens in the hen house. I was­n’t going to take a pho­to because the light was flat, but I changed my tune quite quick­ly as the sun peaked through the clouds and illu­mi­nat­ed this hen through the barn door. Focus­ing on this image was a pain in the ass. Even with bird eye detec­tion aut­o­fo­cus turned on, the cam­era kept tar­get­ing the chick­en­wire. Even­tu­al­ly, I gave up try­ing to fight the cam­era and switched to man­u­al focus­ing mode. Luck­i­ly, the light stayed bright. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. 1/2000 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 640.
Photowalk through the Toronto Necropolis. An ancient and severely weathered tombstone.
The sun was in and out dur­ing our stroll through the Toron­to Necrop­o­lis. The scenery lacked lus­tre, but I spot­ted this dark head­stone against a bright yel­low tree. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 50–140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens. 1/400 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.
Photowalk through the Toronto Necropolis. Burst of colour from a tree.
I was ini­tial­ly drawn to the burst of colour from the two trees on the upper right. How­ev­er, I could­n’t think of a fea­si­ble com­po­si­tion until I found the tiny fence curv­ing up towards it from a nar­row path. Still, the scene was chal­leng­ing, and this pho­to is heav­i­ly edit­ed to keep the intend­ed sub­ject the main point of focus. There’s exten­sive burn­ing in the upper left and bot­tom right cor­ners and the hedge­line. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 16–55mm F2.8 R LM WR Lens. 1/50 sec at ƒ/8.0 and ISO 160.
Photowalk through Toronto's Riverdale Farm. Small flower in a scummy pond.
At the bot­tom of the hill upon which Riverdale Farm sits, just before exit­ing out to Riverdale Park West and its fields, there’s a nasty old pond with a tan­gle of fall­en trees and green scum. Voila! Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 16–55mm F2.8 R LM WR Lens. 1/60 sec at ƒ/5.6 and ISO 160.
Photowalk through the Bridgepoint Hospital and Riverdale Park East. Abstract shapes and colours.
Just north of the front entrance to the Bridge­point Hos­pi­tal is a large con­crete sit­ting area with sev­er­al round rain and sun shel­ters that resem­ble flat­tened mush­room caps. This is them. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 16–55mm F2.8 R LM WR Lens. 1/60 sec at ƒ/8.0 and ISO 160.

Toronto Photowalk – September 2023 – The Beaches and R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant

Photowalk details:

Date: Sep­tem­ber, 2023

Loca­tion: We met on the wood­en board­walk east of the Wood­bine Park Foun­tain (Map Link). From there, we walked east towards the R.C. Har­ris Water Treat­ment Plant and explored the grounds. I point­ed out the entrance to the so-called “old beach,” but we decid­ed it was­n’t worth the risk of a fall or tum­ble to explore it. That beach is accessed through an unlocked gate with a huge sign bar­ring entry, and explain­ing all the for­bid­den activ­i­ties should you enter any­way. After­wards, we walked back west towards Wood­bine Beach West Dock and watched the sun­set over the Ash­bridges Bay Yacht Club. Sep­tem­ber’s pho­towalk did­n’t have a theme.

Below are some of the pictures I captured during my first autumn photowalk in Toronto. Most of the photos were taken with my Fujinon 56mm F1.2 R lens, and some with my new Fujinon 23mm F1.4 R LM WR lens.

Muscled man on the beach in Toronto during September.
A fel­la. One of the pho­towalk par­tic­i­pants was strange­ly pre­oc­cu­pied with how mus­cu­lar this man’s back was. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/4000 sec at ƒ/2.0 and ISO 160.
R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant in September.
There’s a wind­sock on the R.C. Har­ris Water Treat­ment Plant. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/2500 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.

Girl in a pink sweater posing for a photo in front of a maple tree.
I’m most­ly shar­ing this for the colours and con­trast. I missed the more pho­to­genic moment when she was reach­ing for the leaves a few sec­onds before this frame. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/1000 sec at ƒ/1.8 and ISO 160.
Toronto photowalk. Yellow sunset over the Ashbridges Bay Yacht Club.
This pho­to is con­fir­ma­tion that the pho­towalk kept to its sched­ule. We arrived at the loca­tion at just the right time. I’ve empha­sized the yel­low in the sky by increas­ing the white bal­ance to 7500K. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/2000 sec at ƒ/8.0 and ISO 160.
Flowers in the sunlight
I could­n’t resist a pho­to of these per­fect­ly formed duet in the gold­en sun­light. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/180 sec at ƒ/5.6 and ISO 160.
Classic Chevrolet Corvette during blue hour twilight.
We could­n’t resist stop­ping to take pho­tos of this cur­va­ceous Chevro­let Corvette dur­ing twi­light. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/40 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 160.

This is the last pho­to I took before say­ing good­bye to the group. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/50 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 160.

Toronto Photowalk – August 2023 – Harbourfront

Photowalk details:

Date: August 27, 2023

Loca­tion: We met in front of the bronze stat­ue of Jack Lay­ton on a tan­dem bicy­cle near the Jack Lay­ton Fer­ry Ter­mi­nal entrance. We made our way west from the Fer­ry Ter­mi­nal, mean­der­ing along the water­front and Queens Quay toward Ire­land Park. Along the board­walk lead­ing up to Ire­land Park, we saw an elab­o­rate mar­riage pro­pos­al set­up that fea­tured a neon “Will You Mar­ry Me” sign hang­ing in the cen­tre of a large heart cov­ered in white flow­ers and sur­round­ed by white flower petals and lined by tea can­dles float­ing with­in clear glass­es vas­es.

The theme for the pho­towalk was a sin­gle focal length chal­lenge. It was meant to encour­age par­tic­i­pants to think dif­fer­ent­ly through the lim­i­ta­tions of a sin­gle focal length lens. Con­straints can often spur cre­ativ­i­ty to cap­ture stir­ring images. The pho­towalk was meant to reshape every­one’s per­spec­tive and unlock new dimen­sions of sto­ry­telling. Folks who don’t own a sin­gle focal length lens were encour­aged to sim­u­late the con­straint by not zoom­ing their lens­es.

Below are some of the pictures I captured during the photowalk. All photos were taken with my Fujinon 56mm F1.2 R lens.

A Toronto ferry taking people to Ward's Island.
A fer­ry depart­ing the Jack Lay­ton Fer­ry Ter­mi­nal en route to Ward’s Island. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/1000 sec at ƒ/5.6 and ISO 160.

Waves wash­ing over algae-cov­ered rocks on Toron­to’s harbourfront.Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/8 sec at ƒ/5.6 and ISO 160.
Woman on phone in Tim Horton's during sunset along Queens Quay in Toronto.
Strong light from the set­ting Sun onto a woman inside a Tim Hor­ton’s along Queens Quay. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/400 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.
Rental canoes in storage.
Canoes for rent on Toron­to’s har­bourfront. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/200 sec at ƒ/8.0 and ISO 160.
Hard plastic seats inside an old Toronto ferry.
I real­ly enjoy the aes­thet­ic and light cast through dirty back­lit win­dows. This old Toron­to fer­ry has a deck full of hard indi­vid­ual plas­tic seats. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/800 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.
Life jackets stuffed in the upper deck of a Toronto ferry.
More win­dows and reflec­tions. This time the win­dow of the upper bridge is stuffed with per­son­al flota­tion devices. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/500 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.
Spiderweb hanging from bicycle handlebars.
The way I see it, there are two pos­si­bil­i­ties for what has hap­pened here. Either the bicy­cle has been parked in this spot for a long time, or we’re deal­ing with a quick spi­der. How fast can spi­ders weave such a beau­ti­ful web? Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/640 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 160.
Couple sitting on wave deck on the Toronto waterfront with a large sailboat in background.
Beau­ti­ful reflect­ed sun­light on the sail­boat and a cou­ple seat­ed on the wave deck. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/1600 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 160.
Yellow flower with wooden fence in the background in Toronto's Music Garden.
I took this pho­to in the wild­flower area of Toron­to’s Music Gar­den. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/125 sec at ƒ/2.8 and ISO 160.

Deep red sail boat in Toronto's Marina Quay West.
We saw this stun­ning red sail­boat in Mari­na Quay West across from the Music Gar­den. Shot using my Fuji­film X‑H2s cam­era and Fuji­non XF 56mm F1.2 R lens. 1/1600 sec at ƒ/4.0 and ISO 160.

Toronto Photowalk 5: Ontario Place and Exhibition Place.

Photowalk details:

Date: May 21, 2023

Loca­tion: We met in the shad­ow of the Princes’ Gate. From there, the group processed toward the old Ontario Place grounds via Tril­li­um Park, and lat­er, north toward the Rose Gar­den at Exhi­bi­tion Place. We con­clud­ed the walk on the Duf­ferin St Bridge.

Since the theme I had orig­i­nal­ly envi­sioned for our April pho­towalk was aban­doned due to the gloomy weath­er, I risked repeat­ing the theme one more time. For­tu­nate­ly, that gam­ble paid off! The after­noon was warm and the sun radi­ant. Ulti­mate­ly, pho­towalk themes are mere sug­ges­tions designed to trick your mind into being more cre­ative via arti­fi­cial con­straint.

Toronto Photowalk 4: Berczy Park, St. James Park, and Distillery District.

Photowalk details:

Date: April 22, 2023

Loca­tion: We met near the Berczy Park Dog Foun­tain. Our points of inter­est includ­ed St. James Cathe­dral and St. James Park, St. Lawrence Mar­ket, and Dis­tillery Dis­trict, where we grabbed cof­fee and treats.

The theme I had orig­i­nal­ly envi­sioned, Light and Con­trast, was a bust. I was hop­ing that sun­nier con­di­tions would encour­age folks to exper­i­ment pho­to­graph­i­cal­ly with the warm con­trast of late after­noon sun­light. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the weath­er was drea­ry and over­cast, more rep­re­sen­ta­tive of late Novem­ber than late April.

Some photos from the photowalk

I’m slight­ly embar­rassed to admit that I only took two pho­tos, and one of them isn’t worth shar­ing. I blame it on my state of mind. The weath­er was unco­op­er­a­tive and I was busy ensur­ing every­one was feel­ing wel­come and enjoy­ing them­selves.

Toronto Photowalk 2: Brookfield Place to Nathan Phillips Square

Exposure Therapy’s second photowalk in Toronto.

I want to thank every­one who braved the chilly wind to join me on Expo­sure Therapy’s sec­ond Toron­to pho­towalk. There were sev­er­al last-minute can­cel­la­tions, but enough peo­ple showed up to form a tight, well-round­ed group. I hope for greater atten­dance as the weath­er swings into spring and more folks are will­ing to spend pro­longed peri­ods out­side!

Photowalk details:

Date: Feb­ru­ary 26, 2023

Loca­tion: Brook­field Place, Nathan Phillips Square, Osgoode Hall, and David Pecaut Square.

Theme: Wide-angle pho­tog­ra­phy. “Let’s explore the pos­si­bil­i­ties of using wide-angle lens­es. In this pho­towalk, you’re chal­lenged to use focal lengths of 35mm or less on full-frame or 24mm or less on APS‑C. Let’s have fun and explore extreme per­spec­tives!”
