Just a few more photos from a daytime visit to the abandoned movie theatre in Vaughan. It's in amazingly good shape – look at all of that unbroken glass, complete with original AMC detailing – and at least some of the grounds are being actively maintained even though all of the surrounding businesses are closed. Vaughan really is the city above Toronto.

Looking at these photos all I can think is how much I love Fujifilm Acros, and how lusciously it renders highlights and blacks.

These ones were taken on Ilford HP5.

HP5 is the tool of choice for my rangefinder, while I do night photography on Acros with the auto-everything SLR that I have an electronic cable release for. I prefer the smaller size of the rangefinder, but the SLR gives more precise compositions. For the first photo I wanted to line up the verticals of the middle-right railing, to create a unifying line between the two tiers, which meant fine-tuning the composition by sighting down the hotshoe as a proxy for the optical axis of the lens. (Yes, I could get an accessory finder for it, but for once I'm under-accessorized.)

Compare that trick with how I centered the railing-post on the door in the fourth Acros photo in the night set, or the tree in front of the door in the third photo, or the spacing of the lights in photos three and two. These little games are so much easier with a through-the-lens viewfinder — especially when combined with a tripod.

These photos, in addition to being shot on HP5+, were taken with the Zeiss Ikon and ZM 35/2 using a yellow filter. The night Acros photos were with the F6, 50/1.8G, and a half-strength Tiffen Black Promist filter.
