~Tweed Ride~

Camera: Minolta X-7A + Asahi Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8
Film:  Fujicolor 400

Stumbled upon the Tweed Ride while on my regular photoshoot strolls on Queen street~ 
For those of you who have no clue what this event is about (and I personally had never heard of it before either), it happens once a year in Toronto, where a group of people wearing tweed, and basically dressed up in the ~1930-50's, bike around the city of Toronto.
The route is revealed to the part
icipants the day of, so it's impossible for an outsider to know where their stop locations are.
But as determined as I am, it was too good of an opportunity to get great fashion photos to give up! So I decided to follow them as best as I could...on foot!
I don't know how I managed.... but I definitely got my share of workout for the day~ Couldn't feel my legs after that.....but it was definitely worth it!

I hope you'll enjoy these few shots~
