Double Exposure Experiment One

You can do a lot of amazing things with Photoshop, but sometimes it's fun to experiment in the analog world. While scanning the family slides, it suddenly hit me that I could place one slide atop another to create a double exposure effect. And lo and behold - it worked! After a fashion, at least. It would work better if I chose two relatively uncluttered slides - one to serve as background, and the other featuring a strong subject. This exposure would have been way more dramatic if I had been standing against empty sky instead of the peas behind me; that way, the flaming debris of the second slide wouldn't have had to compete with as much clutter. Still, for a quick experiment, I think it's kind of neat.
