There are times when I look at my shots and think to myself, these photos are why I still shoot with film. It was the perfect day again (if only we could have had the weather a week later…but anyways). The sky was a brilliant blue, the weather was warm, it was the perfect day for a BBQ, friends, a beautiful setting, and of course ‘chrome film.
‘chrome film? Why, slide film of course, Fujichrome to be exact, Velvia. Delicious, Delicious Velvia. Fuji’s answer to Kodachrome, and E-6 process also.
So I found myself in beautiful Welland Ontario, I have to say I love small towns, and with the perfect weather and just a touch of fall coming out, I loaded up some of my beloved Velvia and got to shooting, both along the drive to Welland and at Mel and Bryan’s place who graciously hosted us.
