June 2012: Polaroid emulsion lift combined with transparency technique

My new Polaroid SX-70 arrived today and it came with all kinds of fancy accessoires like a close up lens and cable release. Last night, I read about the transparencies technique, so first thing I did after unpacking was to take a test shot, peel off the transparent layer and combine it with an old Polaroid emulsion lift: bottom is brighton beach, top is flower pedals. I like how the flower pedals seem to grow out of the sky, but I know that there's a long way to go till I'll be able to get really satisfying Polaroid doubles- but hey, it's my first try....

    Well, if this is just the first try, I'm looking forward to the next ones, because this one is already pretty amazing I think.

    @limpi: It's a pier at Brighton beach. As far as I remember, it burned down and they built a new pier a bit further down the beach, but the burned-down pier is still there and really a sight to behold :)

    It's said that it was burnt down on purpose so the big pier didn't have a competitor anymore, though it was shut down a long time before the fire.
