This collection of six images taken last Saturday is different from my usual 
fare in a couple of ways. Firstly, it rained. We have had an extremely dry 
summer, and this was the first serious rainfall since June. Secondly, the 
photos are from a roll of XP2 Super shot in my Olympus OM4T with the Zuiko 
1.8/50mm lens. By coincidence, in August I had to renew one of my passports, so 
I looked for a place to have the passport photos taken. And I found such a 
place in our suburb of El Campello. Not only that, but they also develop C41 
in-house, and provide development plus scan for 9 Euro. So I tried a roll and 
picked it up today, along with the scans. I will re-scan the negatives on my 
own film scanner, but these are the scans the shop provided—they are not bad at 
all, I think. 

The square behind the Mercado:

The view from just inside the Mercado:

Inside, a woman and a butcher engaged in a transaction:

A fishmonger couple:

Wrapping fish for a customer:

Unhappy fish (I would be unhappy too in this situation):

I am not sure, but I may have used the 85mm Zuiko for this last photo.

Comments welcome as always.
