Dreaming in Monochrom(e) - Buddha in Snowstorm

Here are a couple of shots I made with Ilford Delta 3200 film in my Leica M4-2, at a Buddhist temple during a snowstorm. Both were made with the Zeiss C Sonnar 50mm f1.5 lens, one of my favorite lenses.

I selected 1/125-1/250 sec. for my shutter speed, in an effort to catch the falling snowflakes.

I like how the statue's eye shows up in this image.
I wouldn't normally use high speed film for images like this, but it was what I had with me. I think it worked out pretty well.
