Upon waking

For some years now my wife and I have undertaken a project for eventual exhibition where upon waking I would grab whatever camera happened to be loaded with film and take a portrait using available light.

Contax G1, Zeiss Planar 45mm, Ilford Pan 100

On this occasion I had been woken by a knock on our apartment door, it was the postman delivering a Contax G1 I had purchased earlier that week.
As Tamara was still sleeping and I was eager to use it I quickly loaded a roll of film and took a series of shots of Tamara sleeping.
Of the half dozen shots this is the one I prefer, that moment just before she woke fully.
