Industrial Double Take
This is an accidental double exposure resulting from some strange camera behaviour.
I flew up to Haida Gwaii with the Canon Elan 7N camera, mid-roll, in my Pelican case. I forgot to release the vent and the case, which I bought in 1982 and is not/no longer as robust as modern ones, was sucked in at the sides. And the camera, when I looked, proclaimed a film winding error and was essentially frozen. I had to pop open the back to override the message and rewind the film. So, I tried a different roll which worked fine while I was in the islands. But I did not finish it, and when I got home, the camera was giving me that message again so I popped that roll out too. I think the camera is reacting to the pressure changes, but I don’t know for sure. If any one out there has some insight, I would love to hear it.
Anyway, I thought I had only shot 5 or 6 frames on this roll of film, so I put it back in the camera, advanced to about number 8 and started shooting. Turns out I had shot most of the roll of film and thus ended up with several double exposures.
This is one of my favourites – my granddaughter looks so blasé about what otherwise appears to be a serious situation.
