Midsummer Outing – July 3rd

When: Wednesday, July 3 – 7:00 PM sharp – rain or shine

What: Midsummer outing – Street Walk – Butterfly Laneway

The Butterfly Laneway Project is a local initiative that sponsors street artists, to beautify otherwise drab back alleys and make them attractive as walkable spaces in the city.

The Project has just completed a new collection in a laneway running south from Harbord Street on the west side of Grace St. Lots of gorgeous urban art, plus some wonderful architecture in the back streets, and peeks into some very interesting back yards. It’s a lush, leafy residential area with lots of character.

Meet in front of the tiger statue on the northwest corner of Bloor and Christie, right across from the Christie Subway Station. From there we will walk south on Clinton Street, jogging through the back alleys down to the Butterfly Laneway, and then back up to Bloor Street. 

Come for a quick tour before sunset, or stay and enjoy the opportunity for night street photography on Bloor once the sun goes down.

If anyone gets lost, text Paul at 416 571 6175

Warning: excellent ice cream available en route. 

April 29,2019 Underwater Photography

TOPIC : Underwater Photography


SPEAKER : Stuart Seldon, professional photographer
DATE/TIME : Monday, April 29th, 2019 at 7:00 pm
LOCATION  : Humber Valley United Church, Etobiocke
Please join ECC members and guests for an speaker presentation by professional underwater photographer, Stu Seldon. Guest fee of $10.00 for non-members applies … parking is free.
Stuart became a certified diver in 1974, and purchased a Nikonos III later that same summer, at age 17 with a fraudulently obtained bank loan. Over the years he wasted countless rolls of film, but managed to learn a few things about the unique challenges of underwater photography while shooting shipwrecks and critters. His earliest published images were shot in the Cape Anne region of Massachusetts and published in a British newspaper at the age of 22.
Many years, and many cameras later, Stuart moved to a digital system which re-kindled a fading interest. The improving visibility in the Great Lakes opened up new opportunities for wreck photography.
Since then, images have been published in several magazines including Diver, Alert Diver, Sport Diver and Zoomer. His images can be found on many of the area’s dive shop’s websites, several Caribbean resorts and on the BC Dive Industry Association’s promotional material. He has also contributed to e-publications about Belize and British Columbia.
Last fall, Stuart was the subject of an 8 page article in Diver Magazine, where he finally achieved his 15 minutes of fame! Here is Stuart’s official website:

Will take a look at the unique challenges and rewards of underwater photography  –  from the cold Canadian waters to warmer climes and fish.
Please join us for our last official speaker meeting of the 2018/2019 ECC season.
See you there!
