Skywatch Friday: Spacious Skies

This is a double exposure done with a Holga 120N and Kodak Tri-X400 developed in Diafine. The first exposure was done pointing the camera up at the clouds through the trees overhead. For the second, the camera was aimed at a veteran's grave in the cemetery where I was standing. The grave marker doesn't show up in the final image, but the small American flag placed next to it does--another interesting toy camera accident.

Have to agree with Gemma, love the overlay and there is definitely a moody feel to the shot and a very lovely one it is, David! Have a great weekend!

I love this shot and I'm glad you mentioned the flag as I might have missed it otherwise.

Thanks to all for the comments. The stripes of the small flag are below the clouds and to the left of the tree.

Wow! I agreed with Gemma, the overlay really does add drama to the shot. I am thinking about buyng a Holga, so this definitely food for thought! Thanks for posting.
