I soon grabbed myself another 5 pack of Fuji slide film without realising I’d picked up Provia instead of Velvia. However I absolutely fell in love with the gorgeous bright tones of the cross processed Provia pics.

This film also makes a fairly ordinary day in Wiltshire look bright and exciting.
The results always make me smile and somehow make my memories of the time that I took that photograph more vivid and fun!
