    Or both of course. Nine paper negs, all with defects - which I quite like...
    Looks like a lot of wet plate work looks. I kind of like it.

    By accident I placed the glass image on top of the still life, and the third image emerged...
    So now I have actually cut the still life to make it fit the glass..
    That hurt..
    But that is what "Kill your Darlings" is all about.. it has to cost something..
    It is like a marriage og two aras and images...Edit: forgot I also made this versions by "mistake" as I put the image on an old 40+ year table with all kinds of paint remains on it...
    So now I have three versions of this motive..
    I really love the one with the paint.

    An accidental double exposure while taking my first shoots with a military Anniversary Speed Graphic (4x5), made in 1944 and used by the USAAF in WW2. Kodak Ektar f4,7 lens, Ilford FP4+ tray developed in HC110.

    I'm not 100% sure of the exact circumstances of this mistake. I have a home-made recessed lens board for my 65/5.6 SA and 75/5.6 Fujinon W to use on my B&J 4x5. Instead of just switching lens elements and leaving the shutter in place as I do now, I switched the shutters in the field with no tools, and screwed the lens elements back in place once the shutter was fastened. For space reasons, it's quite difficult to fit a standard cable release on a shutter into my lens board, so it's a little fiddly to make it all work. IIRC, I mounted the 75/5.6 Fujinon W for this shot, the shutter rotated when I tried to cock it, so I removed the rear lens element to tighten the shutter on the recessed lens board. I then proceeded to take the shot without replacing the rear element of the lens. It was probably inside the bellows for this shot, but I'm not really sure of that part.

    Gaspe peninsula, Ile Bonaventure, one of the unrestored houses in the park (2018). As usual, the mistake is probably better than the original shot as I composed it.

    A nice "ghostly" image. I like it.

    Can't believe how many mistakes I still make - and how lucky I am doing it....

    I was having a hard time focusing because the light was fading, but also because the lens fogged over.

    Well, I certainly didn't see this in the GG. Turns out it's a reflection from the rear window of my Expedition shining on the lens, I recognize the image.
