It was a Wednesday in Seattle. The rain had finally stopped. Sunshine with a few clouds dominated the skies. I was downtown to do some darkroom printing and to give Panda Labs a couple of rolls of color film I had already shot. I had my FM3a loaded with Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400, with the Nikon 50 1:2 Lens attached. The streets were quieter than I was accustomed to. When I prepared to shoot the first image I realized I did not want to be there. I wanted to be home with a book and a cup of coffee. I do not always do what I want. I needed the practice and I needed to evaluate the film. I hoped my body language did give an indication of how I felt inside. When comparing the images with others shot on Kodak Portra films I liked the look of the Portra films better. But they are much more expensive. You can buy a 3 roll pack of the Fujifilm for $12.
