Florida in no particular order part 2

A lot of the photos here I feel weirdly guilty about. They are all double exposures taken with Polaroid but way over exposed. Once scanned however, I can bring the exposure level way down and kind of reveal an image you can't even see on the picture itself.

Part of me feels like this is cheating, like I should just get the exposure right in the first place.

On the other hand, no one sees the actual pictures except me and like two other people at most. So what's it matter if it's digitally altered?

In the end, I just think these images are beautiful, digital or not...

This is the only one that actually looks like this on the hard copy.

Oh, and the black dot I think is called reciprocity failure. Basically the sun burning out the film.

I see photos like this all the time, but they never get old to me.
