Gigi Tindle is my favorite creative photographer on JPG. Her mastery of double-exposures and unique compositions inspires me to envision different images. No one else on this site embraces its community as much as her. From the JPGers Ball to Project SCANdalous, Gigi is always organizing fun virtual events. Everyone here on JPG owes her a debt of gratitude.

Intentional double exposure of the Federal Court Building and a gondola on the Providence River using my Holga camera. Providence is nicknamed "The Renaissance City" for good reason!

Update 8/31/2010: This photo was published in Light Leaks Magazine #17, the "Ebb and Flow" issue.

Created using a Holga 120CFN with 20(!?!) year expired AGFA Chrome 50 RS Professional (iso 50) slide film. Positive (slide) scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!

    Exactly! Her "endless well of support and good will" REALLY makes me want to come back to this site every day (and forward "alcrappa" photos to her!)

    Yes, I'm with you all. I too love that Gigi girl. And all her double exposure shots. I didn't even know what a Holga was before I came to JPG. Now I own one too and every time I play with it I think of Gigi and other JPGers like her who master that whole double exposure thing. I love yours Paul. It's a beautiful blue and a wonderful tribute. Nicely done.
