Another of the pictures of the "lost" and then finally developed, strangely exposed Holga snapshots from Jamaica, 11/06

...fairly apt representation of my stay on the island...

I've got to say, I have NO IDEA how the heck this picture was created!!! If you can help explain it, I'd be in your debt....

As always, pictures taken with a Holga can have their beautiful strange-memory vibe going on due to light leakage, vignetting, etc. (among other reasons) I've also found it can be difficult to get a roll of film to roll tightly. This one in paticular was very loose when I finished it and all pictures toward the end are warped, bleached, and have multiple exposures.

This picture, however, was unique as I can't explain how the chess board and the sky/tiki hutts were exposed on the same frame.

It was near the middle of the roll, and I believe this is where the effects of the loose roll started...

Maybe I didn't advance the film? (I'm always very, very vigilant about that, though)

The most believable theory is that the local "imbibments" probably had something to do with it....
