Soho Photo has been celebrating inexpensive cameras for the past 17 years through its annual International Krappy Kamera Competition

Here is my krappy kamera photo from a Hallowe’en Party in the Church Basement (Plainville, Ontario)  circa 1964.  It would not win any prizes, but I am rather taken with the effect of my costume — I was Miss Witch 1964, complete with a hula hoop, and the effect of the double exposure is that I seem to have both a pirate and a smoking gent firmly in my grasp.   The photo was supposed to be of just me and my best friend Brenda — we are both smiling broadly.Halloween double exp 1963 copy
