Cherry Blossom Doubles

Inspired by the cherry blossoms at Landesmuseum Hannover I made doubles

It was not a bright day with sunshine, but the cherry blossom trees at Landesmuseum Hannover caught my attention. As I had to change films I loaded an expired Kodak Elitechrome EB2 in my LC-A and I decided to shoot an entire layer only with these cherry blossoms, shot after shot, more and more. And I must say that shooting that fast and advancing is hard work! So I rewinded the film, left it inside the camera and went on shooting randomly.
The results are more or less blossomy. It is not the colour, but the structure I gained. I will try it with other things, too, as I like the effect, the idea that all shots on that film have something in common.

So what will you shoot now?

    I'm confused as to how you get this effect. Did you use the film twice?
