This week’s set of double exposures are from my trip to Toronto. They were all taken on the same afternoon in downtown of Union Station, the CN Tower and the weird CN Rail Museum that was covered in snow, plus the handsome Victor (who looks like a hipster in his winter jacket). My favourite and the silliest is the one below where I was trying to make it look like a train was hitting the ‘Watch for Train’s sign…it didn’t quite work out but it makes me laugh. These were all very fun to take and made me think I should probably not be such a hermit and get out there and take photos of the beautiful snow before it melts.
Sometimes the best photos of a spur of the moment, like this week’s multiple exposure self-portrait. This mask is of a cat, but I feel like it makes me look like a Valkyrie in these photos. My best friend Ana gave it to me as a Christmas present and I love it so much I had to include it in this week’s 52 Weeks of Self-Portrait. Next week I hope it snows as I’ve yet to take a snow photo this winter. Hope you all have a good holiday, see you next week!
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to this
State of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be”
Have a look back at the last year of Multiple and Double Exposures! I am really excited to continue to explore this aspect of my photography and work on making surreal illusions without the use of editing.

Today’s double exposures were all taken at Mont-Royal here in downtown Montreal during a nice day back in earlier October. I have been to the ‘mountain’ a few times this Fall but haven’t been lately (I probably should although I fear I’ve missed the prettiest trees by a few weeks). We sat in one of the fields there between a bunch of trees and had a mini-picnic that only consisted of strawberry cheese cake slices and tarts. I love the name of this set of photos, “No Escape from Autumn” – me being clever I guess. I’d live in a land of infinity autumn just as long as there wasn’t any rain.
