Double Happiness (double exposure of little girl)
A fortuitous accident led to this double exposure of a young girl in a white dress in front of a white wooden fence in front of a house with storybook shutters and climbing morning glories. This is one of my favorite photographs in my entire collection. It so surreal, and so evocative.
In the main exposure she smiles, with her arms at her sides; in the double-exposure she’s smiling just a bit less, and it looks like her hands are on her hips -- tired of being photographed? The focus of the original is soft, the image very light and ethereal. It always reminds me of “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
This photo is available in two sizes:
a) The photo, with its original border, is 5.625 x 7.75 inches (vertical). The image area, not including the original border, is 4.25 x 6.25 inches. The reproduction is printed on 8 x 10 paper.
b) The photo, with its original border, is 2.75 x 3.875 inches (vertical). The image area, not including the original border, is 2.125 x 3.125 inches. The reproduction is printed on 4 x 6 paper.
