More provia, coffee + ice cream

Not much time for a long commentary tonight but here are a few more shots from that roll of Provia 100f. I get the sense that slide film looks more "filmy" in a way. And to answer a comment on the last post, you don't need a projector to view these. All you really need is some sort of lit white background to hold the slide against (a computer screen works just great). I scan them just like my normal negatives and tell my scanner that it's positive film so it knows what to do with them.

I love coming across the Van Leeuwen ice cream truck. That characteristic shade of mellow banana yellow is recognizable anywhere. Even though it was quite chilly that day, I rebelled against the weather with an affogato, choosing hazelnut ice cream for the base. Though, I quickly sought indoor warmth after that.

Love their stamped cups!


  1. The tone from these slides or from your processing is very soothing.

  2. These are very, very nice photos. I'm excited to get what fantastic photos of a roll film. Crystal clear and no noise. When I look at my previous roll photos, then there were other times.

    Your photos always make much of an appetite. :)

  3. oh, i love that first interior shot. these tones are so awesome. i hope i can try slide film one day.

  4. great series, i really appreciate the last photo :)


  5. What a neat post! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Alice,

    Enjoying this blog and thinking that I need to acquire a scanner to share all the film negatives that are just pilling up.

    Your scanner is doing a good job for the Web, but what device would you suggest?


  7. great set of photos, as usual :)
    Those chocolate cookies look so yummy!
