Slutwalk Toronto 2011

The first Slutwalk protest and march which was organized in Toronto, Ontario on April 3 2011.

I spent time over the summer months going through a couple of storage drives and reprocessing some older pics that I liked. NOW comes the fun part of organizing and posting the new sets of old photos :)

Original photography from 2011 using a Canon EOS T1i. Reprocessed in 2015 using Silver EFEX Pro as a Lightroom plugin for the B&W conversion.

Thanks for looking…
