A Year in Colour Film 2019 - Part One

January 16, 2020

2019 was another good year in film photography for me.

This is part one of my favourite colour film images of 2019.

The images in this post were captured from January through June 2019.

All images shared here are from Toronto. Images I captured elsewhere are shared in other blog posts (such as here and here of NYC).

Here we go...

I did a number of photo walks between Bloor and Queen in 2019,

capturing what remains of old school Yonge Street.

Here are just a few images from those walks.

Crumbs

Kodak Gold 200 The Big Slice

The Big Slice was very popular for late-night pizza on Yonge Street.

Sadly it closed in 2016 after forty years in business.

This was one of my more popular film images that I shared on Instagram in 2019.
