Hey gang, here's a neat story that happened to me last week.
Two months ago, I purchased a Canon EOS 5 on Ebay. The camera had a minor undocumented fault, and the seller offered some free film to compensate me. Since the only thing better then film is *free* film, I happily took him up on the offer.
So a week later, in comes a small envelope with three unboxed rolls: two Konica Centuria 200 and a Solaris 200. I used one of the Konica's to test the 'new' EOS 630 that I bought. The film was developed last week, with a surprising result.
I get the negatives home and pull them out for scanning. The first half of the film was completely exposed. I.e. black with no frame numbers. Now, I know I didn't open my camera... so something's up. Second half of the roll did have images on it. I scan one in, expecting to see some boring skies... and there's a young child staring back at me very faintly through the picture. Whoa!
So I scan the rest of the roll... and would you believe it... it's been used before I got it. Perhaps the previous owner didn't know what he was doing, opened the back, exposed the rest, didn't roll the leader back in the can and dumped it into a bag, where it ended up in my Ebayer's posession who merrily shipped it off to me.
Some of them are quite hazy, others clear as day. I can't quite tell where or when they were taken, but there are some kids in scouting uniform in it. Apart from that, no clues.
It actually does inspire me to try my hand at some actual, intentional double exposures
And here's the nicest one from the bunch:
