I thought I’ve done all of it: Forgot the camera, leave the battery uncharged, overwrote the memory card. And not just once. So I have become pretty good at double checking my equipment.
I did check everything before I went today to take some shots of my beloved Pate Hollow trail in snow.
What I forgot was that I had set the camera to take double exposures when I took photos for Wenckheim X. Back then, I had try to compose the double exposures carefully.
Not so here. They are completely unintended. Of course most of the pictures are just trash.
Some, however, came out nicely, when the subconscious effort to capture the atmosphere of the place superposes its actual appearance.
I see this as a unique opportunity. There is no way to make the same mistake unintentionally a second time.
