Leica M2 - Test Roll: Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore

Living in Baltimore, it's easy to take for granted that one of the more prestigious schools in the world is just down the road. My wife and I have been visiting a family member in the hospital in the vicinity of the JHU campus, so we've been taking a lot of walks around the area. As an unusually timid Spring peeked its head around from behind a stubborn Winter, it seemed like an ideal opportunity to shoot a test roll on my new (to me) Leica M2.

When I started getting back into shooting film in 2012, my good friend Johnny Martyr was kind enough to give me a bag full of various film, some of which is still in my freezer. I loaded up a roll of 24 exposure Kodak Gold 100 and—not knowing whether or not it was expired (and if so, exactly how expired)—I rated it at ISO 50 and then erred on the side of overexposure.
