My First Roll of Film with the Leica M3 and Summicron 50mm f/2 DR Lens

I breathed a big sigh of relief when I glanced over the contact sheet from my first roll of film that I had shot with my Leica M3. There was still a cloud of mystery as to whether or not the M3 had sustained any damage after I dropped it recently http://felixgphoto.blogspot.kr/2015/06/i-dropped-my-leica-m3-besides-that-it.html

I shot a roll of Ilford HP5 ISO 400 Black and White film and as you can see below, I think the results are pretty good for my first go with a Leica. I still have to get used to using a rangefinder, it takes a little getting used to as far as framing the shot.

All images captured with Leica Summicron 50mm f/2 DR lens.

Pictured: Leica M6 TTL Titanium. No this isn't my M6. Mine is all black!

Below... these are the kinds of photographs I am looking forward to capturing with my Leica M3. This little girl found so much joy and simple happiness by playing with the water fountain on a hot day. Her smile in the third shot says it all. Good job Leica M3!
