Random Photos of Taipei/Taiwan #8 (Olympus 35DC and Agfa APX 100)

After refurbishing my Olympus 35DC with a new leatherette and light seals, it was time to test if everything works fine. And yes, the results are great. No light leaks, the film transport works better now, and it seems that the light meter is also working better now. Here are some of the photos from the test film taken in June 2019. Developed with Ilford Ilfotec LC29 (1+19) for 7:45 min at 19°C.
