    True, but in my defense, we only got 1 channel reliably on the farm, and grandma didn’t encourage tv in town. By the time I watched them both, we were heavily invested in recreational pharma (70s are still pretty hazy)…

    Actually, Dr.T, I’d love to hear the technique and details of this shot, if you’d like to share. Here or PM, but I’m fascinated by this one. Double exposure?

  8. @Flat Earth Luddite: It is a pretty straightforward shot, actually.

    @Steven L. Taylor: Thanks, that helps. Thought it was someone behind you, or in the car, or something like that. Shows what I get for thinking before my 3rd cup of coffee.
