Agra, India

Something happened between taking the film out of my camera and getting it developed. Somehow two strips of film had been developed while laying on top of one another, and each single image was actually two images combined.

At first I was sad.

My beautiful Taj Mahal pictures had been ruined, along with some of my favorite shots of street scenes in India! But as time passed and I looked at the pictures a few more times, I realized that what had happened was actually unique and beautiful. And maybe not a mistake. Are there any mistakes, really?

So now I want to share them with you. Not because they are perfect photographs, but because they are beautiful “mistakes”.

*These pictures were scanned from film originals, so the quality is less than ideal.

    Great to see someone still using a film camera! I am really thrilled.
    Also the shots have come out amazing well. They are just wonderful. 🙂

    Beautiful images – double exposure photographs are among my favorite from an artistic standpoint. They aren’t mistakes, but rather portraits you didn’t know you were taking. 🙂

    Very original photos! It sure brings a whole different perspective to the standar photos of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. I specially loved the one with the Indian man reading the newspaper.
