    • This week's entry is one of my all-time favorite urban shots of the old town in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

      Just after the sunset, a fresh coat of rain covered up the streets and made for beautiful reflections. The clock tower is a significant historical tourist attraction, and I wish I remembered its history, but I was too distracted with getting the shot.

      Camera: Sony A7s

      Lens: FE 35 f1.4

      Settings: f1.4, 1/60, ISO 320

    • Continuing with my scanning program, here's a shot I scanned this week.

      Taken in 2004 at a Portuguese Cultural Day in Toronto, young dancers line up to perform and look around for their parents in the audience. Nikon F80, scanned from a 35mm slide using a Nikon Coolscan IV ED. Echtachrome 100 film.

      These are the natural colours in the slide, so no modification was needed apart from removing a distracting white spot in the bottom of the frame, and a little sharpening to compensate for the loss in scanning.
