double exposed!

I have recently started shooting with 35mm film again. I love the excitment of not knowing how your pictures are going to come out, the anticipation of seeing what sort of 'prize' you're going to get when you open the envelope.

Well, I can tell you that I was really happy with what developed on these double exposured pictures I made from two very different weekends. One weekend was in New York and the other was at Second Beach in Newport. This one above is one of my favorites. I took 2 exposures of 2 different seagulls. The small one looks see-through, but the larger one is more prominent. I don't know the mechanics of why they are both not see through. I just know that I like the way it looks!

This one is of two different bike taxis going in opposite directions. I like how one of the men noticed that I was photographing him and he's looking straight at the camera!

Below is another cool one of some seagulls.
The guy in front is see-through.

New York is such and interesting city. There are so many vast contrasts. Rich/poor, clean/dirty, old/new. Every single time I visit, I find myself more drawn to the city. It is so alive and vibrant and scary and beautiful. The man to the right is picking a cigarette out of the gutter.
This statue is taken from 2 different angles and has morphed into something different.

Lovely London

I adore London and try to go back at least once a year. Every time I go, I get to see a new area of the city. This time, my new discovery was Mayfair. In all my times, I don't think that I have ever been there. It is the shopping capital of London and it is where all the really expensive flats are and all the rich people go to play, shop and dine. Of course, I'm not one of the rich folks, so I just took a walking tour of the area. Here are some of my favorites.

Night photography

I took a class last night with the talented and inspiring Kristin Gleason at the BCAE. I feel really lucky to have met her and am really excited about all the stuff that I am learning from her. Here is my first attempt at night photography. I gotta tell ya....I'm now hooked! Hope you like.

Portraits of a boy

I recently got the chance to visit an old college friend and take some pictures of her beautiful son. He has the best personality and we had a blast!!
