The old Terminal Tower in Cleveland, OH.  My dad's initials are carved in the flagpole - a stunt he pulled when the building was being built circa 1920.  Not the best shot of it, but it's the only one I have on me after the move.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

St. George's on-the-Hill Anglican Church,  William Tyrrell (architect),1847. 

 

St. George's is the only historic church in Etobicoke whose original building is incorporated within the present structure. In 1894, the plaster exterior of the church was bricked and buttressed and the Tyrrell spire retained, as well as three walls of the original 1847 church.
