These images have been queued for a few days waiting for me to add some supporting thoughts.
It's painfully true that my favorite images aren't so much a result of how technically perfect they are. In truth, I haven't yet reached the point where my exposures in diverse lighting experiences are consistent. I think that's primarily because I've chosen to rely on my Leica MP's internal light meter. The resulting exposures can vary significantly if I'm not being diligent with my exposure target area.
It's so much easier with my Fuji X100s and it's electronic viewfinder. With the Fuji I can see in real time how the exposure will affect the result by panning through the composition using the spot meter or by varying shutter speed and/or aperture or even ISO sometimes. Once I like the exposure I see in the electronic viewfinder I can lock it in and recompose.
With the MP all that technology is purposely absent. I'm left to judge using only the red LED dots in the Leica viewfinder with nothing but my own experience to form in my mind's eye how the scene will be exposed.
That's the challenge of shooting with a basic camera that pushes me back to the elemental basics of photography. It's also why I love shooting with film and why I love my Leica MP. The MP gives me enough of an aid but not too much. It leaves me optimistically challenged. I'm sure some would say, especially the Leica M2, M3 and M-A users, that the MP's light meter should be ignored in favor of a handheld incident meter or even just estimating the light. I recognize the benefits of these ways. One of the main goals of my 365 project however was to shoot with one camera, one lens and one film. The intent was to constrain my shooting around these three things. I purposely didn't include an external light meter and I'm still not ready to guess.
I bought the MP for all it offered. The yet unachieved goal is to master this camera, lens and film. I want to be able to consistently anticipate and know the results I can expect and hopefully the images I'll eventually get. The Project365 is an exercise to get there. Maybe some satisfying subjects and compositions will come along too.
