I finally did it. I acquired a Leica. While in Portland to do a couple of photo shoots, I stopped by Pro Photo Supply to pick up some Portra 160 and T-Max 100 when I stumbled across a Leica M6 in great condition. I picked it up and immediately learned what all the fuss is about in a well-made, all-mechanical Leica. After 24 hours of deliberating whether this camera was more important than eating, I decided that I could do the ramen thing for a month to make of for it. It was definitely worth it.
Here are some of the black and white images I shot with it later that day when I loaded it up with some classic Ilford HP5 film.
