A late addition to the 'At the Farmer's Market' series, posted earlier with images from the Nokia Asha 300. On this visit, I also took the Olympus XA1, which was loaded with a roll of expired Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 and finished the roll with these no-flash images. The time was very early, dawn was just about to break, and the stalls were illuminated only by their LED or other light sources.

The visit was quite a while ago actually. Having the film developed at the lab was a long wait as we had to wait past the 'lockdown rules' when moving along the neighborhood crossovers was easier. I also did a double whammy with the scanned images, as I had the original scans post-processed and posted back to the original folder before realizing the mistake. I was not up to making another set of scans so I continued with the final enhancements and print finishing with the already post-processed images.

The images did good, however, thanks to the D.Zuiko 35mm F4 lens of the XA1 and, though expired, the Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400. Both are with characters of their own. The Olympus XA1, never in the limelight or heavily mentioned of the Olympus XA family of capsule cameras, is still fitted with an outstanding Zuiko lens, and the Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400, daylight balanced, is truly a fine-grain all-purpose, high-performance, and high-speed color negative film.
