Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XI – Fujifilm Velvia 100 and Killbear Provincial Park)

It goes without saying that I have a preference to 100 speed films.  So, when I spotted this roll of Velvia available at ASA 100, I didn’t hesitate to grab it.  My problem was that I didn’t know where to use it. Enter Killbear Provincial Park!  100 speed is my “comfort food” and the percentage of captures I grabbed using this film was, safe to say, higher than the Velvia 50.

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part X – Experiment With a Flash Gone Wrong…)

In the past few weeks, I’ve had an opportunity to try out shooting with slide film – a roll of Fujichrome Velvia 50.  As I mentioned in my previous post, the roll took 2 weeks to process.  (more…)

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part IX – Penny Tries Velvia and A Digital Fisheye?)

Over the past couple of weeks, I was camping and was also waiting for my first roll of slide film (Fujifilm Velvia 50) to come back from the folks at DC. Due to my ignorance, I didn’t know that it would take two weeks for the film to get processed.  “Oh well,” I said to myself,  “What to do in the meantime?”

The Toronto Club

The Toronto Club ( at the corner of York and Wellington Streets.)  Founded in 1837, this is the oldest private club in Canada.  The building, itself, was opened in 1889.

Well I think the title of this blog post says it all.  But I do have a story to tell about this film, if you are willing to read on (and enjoy perusing the photos).
