Madison, Indiana, on Fujifilm Velvia 50

When Margaret and I visited Madison, a town in southern Indiana right on the Ohio River, in October, I brought a lot of film. One roll was Fujifilm Velvia 50 in 120 that I loaded into my Yashica-12.

Autumn colors were in full display that weekend, and the sun was out in a partly cloudy sky. It was a terrific time to be shooting Velvia.

Here are the photos from the roll that I like best.

    Great results! I’ve always had iffy results with Velvia, a tendency to be too contrasty for me, but these look perfect. Velvia is one of those films that when you can find it, is way over priced now. Think I saw a roll of 35mm for $35.00!!

      I have one roll of Velvia left, and it may be my last. I can’t justify the cost.

    Wow. The third image with all the red in the store fronts! That really pops! The church spire is lovely too.

      That’s the thing with Velvia: colors almost supernaturally bright.
