Please see the rare and elusive blue helmet living in its natural habitat.  See how they sleep upside down hanging from low branches.

Was show on Fuji Velvia 50 slide film with an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP500

After posting the above image, it looked a little too blue.  So I did some white balance correction.  This looks a little better.

Very cool, Brian.  Actually I think that I prefer the look of the first.
The topic title gives the game away.  Perhaps you might want to change it.

Good image Brian. You are obviously dedicated to the art of film photography.
I used to take film images but due to my inherent lazy nature I have fully transformed
to the less stressful (at least for me) world of the DSLR. I will always believe however
that the purest images come from film – just like the music that comes from vinyl from a
phonograph compared to the more clinical sounds emanating from a compact disc.
Nice to see that there are people like you that still believe film has an important place in
photography.
Nice work on your past and present posts.
Dale.

Thanks Dale.  I just love the feel of film.  I know that you can simulate it from a RAW file using filters, and things like VSCO but to me there is nothing more satisfying then taking pictures, then developing them and seeing the images fused into the plastic, scanning them in and seeing the results.  That look that film gives…digital just can’t provide it (at least not yet)
