These 4 pictures were taken using a Universal Roamer II 6×9 camera on Ortho Lith film developed in Dektol. Spotlight on doll and accordion with a 3 to 5 second exposure. The film was cut from 8×10 sheets into 3 6cm strips, taped together and then to backing paper and spooled onto a 120 spool. Rolled that way, the film gives 6 out of 8 exposures (2 exposures lap the joints). Very bizarre results.

A long slender branch
cut across your cheek
It left a swollen scratch.
Luminous pink with tiny beads of blood.
I traced your outline
on the pavement
You let your eyes go flat.
I let my mind go blank.
We filled your space with leaves
and clover flowers.
I snapped the branch and placed it
where your cheek was cut.
The curve of a short smile.
The second bus
goes across town.
It takes us past the shipyard
where your grandfather worked.
It takes us home.

The intersection of Sheppard and Bayview, Toronto, Ontario. Shot on film using a Minolta XG1 with a 45mm lens. The intersection ends up looking like a parking lot for that cruise-ship of a building.
