Starting out in film photography just a couple of years ago, there once was a time when “mistakes” such as this would drive me nuts- the dreaded double exposure. Now, I love when these things happen. Mistakes can make for some cool images. Playing with the controls of the F3HP in the field, here in Ayer, Massachusetts, yielded this fun shot, with Ektar 100. I shot this with one of the best zooms of its era, the Nikkor 28-50 f/3.5 Macro. Its color rendition and contrast are phenomenal. And it blows away the long-held myth that zooms of the early 80’s weren’t that good.
Ayer is a sleepy little town that I used to drive through coming home from college, and heading back to campus after weekends. It has a certain New England charm to it.
PS- that is a bird flying in the middle left part of the back exposure, over the brick building.
