Finally developed our first roll of B&W film shot on our Leica M-A.  I think I must have missed the sprockets when I loaded the roll, because I ended up with a few multiple exposures at the head of the roll; which turned out pretty well.  Chalk it up to happy accidents.

 Accidental psychological portrait of my wife.  Her, a map of the world, her books, teacups, unicorn statues, a ballet bar, and other random things she collects.  Leica M-A, Summicron 50mm 2.0, Ilford Delta ISO400 35mm film, multiple exposures.

 The bottom of the multiple exposure portrait overlapping with my wife being sleepy in an elevator.  Leica M-A, Summicron 50mm 2.0, Ilford Delta ISO400 35mm film, improperly cut by the lab?  My fault again?  I wouldn't rule that out either.

 Digital vs. Film.  Shot on the same day.  A7Rii vs. Leica M-A.  Zeiss 35mm 2.8 vs Summicron 50mm 2.0.  I think the light and the pose are better in the digital shot (left), but the one on the right has a little more romance in its softness.  My wife doesn't like the film shot (right) because she's 'got her bitch face on.'

I swear, I really do take pictures of things besides my wife and kickboxers.  ("My wife and kickboxers" copywritten title for my autobiographical sitcom)
