A Year in Black and White Film - 2019

January 30, 2020

2019 was another good year in film photography for me.

I shot quite a few rolls of colour film, and a lesser number of black and white ones.

I recently shared my favourite colour film photos of 2019, in two posts (found here and here).

Here now, are my favourite black and white film images (of those taken in Toronto) - of 2019...
