Doubled pleasure in black and white
I have recently discovered double exposures, yes, I know it sounds really really silly coming from one that have photographed for decades…..
But my whole life, I have been the “good girl” and everything had to be controlled and exact…. But that changed, thanks god!
And when I rediscovered film photography, I had just turned 50, and my lust for adventure and new discoveries had awakened.
And as you all propably know;
Adverture is the result of poor planning
And that is one of the things that I just LOVE about double exposures; you’ll NEVER know what’s coming out of a double, regardless the planning….. =)
So, my friends, never underestimate the result of poor planning!
It may change your whole life! =)
These are amazing — I really like the effect of two separate images combined together. Also, cool words about adventure and poor planning. It’s neat what can come out of experimentation and playing around.
love your blog, it looks fantastic and I am so with you about film and I am fifty next year (so much in common!) come and join our film26project and our flickr group!
Wow – these are so great! I’ve never mastered double exposures, so I’m a little jealous right now. 😀
Very interesting : ) I had one by misstake too, will post when I scanner, because the lab scanned only have of it!
Wow – these photos are fascinating! I’ve not used film for many years but these are most inspiring. I’ve got my 50th next year – so not looking forward to it but promising myself a new camera! I look forward to seeing your blog develop.
Thanks for visiting my blog, Marie, yours is beautiful too !
Love your layout, gorgeous photos in this post and I do love that wonderful polaroid picture !
Have a nice weekend,
I am so impressed and in awe at the haunting beauty of your double exposed photos! I don’t take film pictures any more and I now want to rethink my decision. Of course, I am truly an amateur and don’t know much about manual operation of any camera. BTS Rules!! Madelin
Awesome shots! I love double exposure. And have gone back to using film (in addition to digital) as well. It seems more . . . unpredictable! Love your blog.
These are wonderful! I am totally in awe of people who can take photos,mastering all those dials. My little instant shoot manages to misfunction in my hands.I am without a doubt the worst photographer in the world!
I know how it is, there is such a quandary about the changes. The old readers want me to bring my old banner back. I think it would be better if I just said, I’ll change it again in a year.

I just revisited this after a late – like mine – comment brought me back to it. The last time was before I created my second, photo, blog from which I follow you now. It was really good to see again your comments about getting away from striving for technical perfection. I too in my previous photographic life, was all the time concerned about correct exposure, sharpness, etc, etc. Of course that was a valuable background. But having returned to film after a decade or so with digital I’ve come to the conclusion that it is more important to tell the story than to be technically correct – though it is good to have the knowledge to get to technically correct if the story demands it. But had seeking technical perfection still ruled my photography, my latest post with pictures from my grandchildren’s birthday parties would never had happened.
