Leica M3 / Summicron 50mm / Tri-X

Along with my Fuji X-T1, I also brought my (recently sold) Leica M3 along with me to Italy. I packed 4 rolls of Kodak Tri-X and 2 rolls of Ilford HP5. The M3 does not have a built-in light meter, and my phone was playing games with its battery life, so a lot of my shots were done with the Sunny16 principle and some were done just sort of winging it. But I'm really happy with some of the results.
