Taken inside a gallery at the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, Royal Ontario Museum, this past June.

I’ve been raiding the 35mm archives lately for new material — stuff I shot earlier in the summer but am only just getting around to scanning. This image was an unexpected surprise for me — I think there’s a nice sense of balance and form. It’s also a welcome reminder for me of the benefit of staying with simple, familiar tools — in this case, the Nikon FG camera, 24mm manual-focus lens, and Kodak Tri-X film (developed in the Thornton two-bath developer).
