Brunch, on film

It has been a while since I've given my film some loving, and I finally got around to dropping off some rolls and scanning them. I am really loving the Kodak Portra 400VC results!

I've been wanting to go to Locanda Verde for brunch long before I moved into the city after reading about it on A Passion for Food. This may have been one of the best brunches I can remember having and completely worth the hour or so wait. I'm also 99% sure Tyra Banks walked in here that day. This place is also ridiculously photogenic and well-styled.

Taking home some of those baked goodies was a treat too. I had stellar breakfasts for the next few days. :) They were out of the blueberry muffins (which I think they are well-known for...so obviously a repeat trip is in order!).

  1. I'm digging the tones -- and Portra 400VC? I totally would have thought NC; it's so nice to see that it has such natural colors. I'm using up my roll of Portra 160NC; I can't wait to see what it looks like!

  2. Wow, the tone is really nice! I really want to try the Portras but they're so expensive! And I'd feel terrible to get them developed at drug store..

  3. Do you scan from prints or do you have a scanner that scans negative & positive films? I wanna try out Kodak Potras film too but they are just too expensive :o

  4. MK, I use a negative scanner (Epson V500). It's not fantastic but it gets the job done!

    And yeah, portra is pricey :( :(

  5. i adore the final shot. such a great perspective :)
