She was drinking tea whilst I worked my way through the film, and just happened to lift the cup as I clicked. That huge mug of tea spends nearly all day in her hands and is constantly refilled!

Oh I thought it was a kind of a joke from you, the freckles on the face with the ones on the cup

Goodness! I'm nowhere near so clever to make such subtle pictorial jokes. It was just an example from my first film with a Sonnar 250/f5.6, which seems like it might be a better portrait lens than the fabled 150mm/f4.

Apparently you are. I don’t know who highlighted this, but coincidental, unconsciously and intuitively realized effects are a genuine and valid part of visual arts. Maybe it was Man Ray or someone from that era.  Own it! 😊

      About 100 yers ago, Leitz company issued a set of theatre binoculars in gold (BINAR and BITUR, according to Laney). It was a thing of class and the luxury edition adorned  their catalogue until the WWII. The logical choice was to try and implement the gold mystique to the Leitz cameras as well - and thus in 1929 the "Luxus" Leica (LELUX, LESSALUX) was born. Although never a huge commercial success, the cameras (less than 100 made according to Rogliatti et al.) remains a collector favorite.

      Fast forward to the M era. There were several attempts to revive the glitter with custom golden M3's, but the biggest golden boom was created after the M "revival" with the special edition M4-2 in 1979, commemorating the 100 years anniversary of Oskar Barnack (1879-1979). There were 500+500 cameras made in 1979 and 1980 in Canada for the occasion (1527201-1527700 and 1528151-1528650 respectively) with 24-karat gold plating.

      After that, there were several more editions in gold - for the Sultan of Brunei (I know of two variants, first was the 25th Anniversary of accession to the throne of Sultan of Brunei on 1st October 1992), for the commemoration of the Golden Jubilee celebration of the access to the throne of HM The King Bhumiphol Adulyadej of Thailand (1996) and the Leica MP Gold "60 years PRC" (2009).

      Several very nice golden M2, M3 and M4s surface on eBay now and then, but they are all custom repaints.
      No golden M was made in digital era, only brass - M10P for Thailand S.C. ASSET comes to mind.

      Please feel free to add any additional information!
      And do write how you feel about golden Leicas. You know what they say - anything useful to you is pure gold, regardless of the material used...

      (Pictured here: my personal M4-2 with Leica catalogue production number 10420 from 1980 with the Summilux dating from 1977.)

      Back in  1997 and again in 2000 I took part in workshops/retreats organised by the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists on a small group of islands called the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire. I was the only "outsider" there, being from England. The trip was extended both times to make the travel worthwhile. I shot mostly black and white using Kodak T400CN so I could get it processed locally and not worry about x-ray damage at the airport. In 1997 I used an M3 and in 2000 it was an M6.
      I have recently been invited my the Portsmouth Athenaeum to add my images to their archives of the area for posterity, and have gladly accepted as i consider it an honour. There is a lot of work involved scanning negatives and spotting etc. but there are also a lot of memories.
      You can see some of the work on the portfolio page of my website, please take a look, or there is a taster attached from 1997. Who knows, one day it may be an exhibition!
