Vintage Photo Friday: The Ghostly Bridal Party

Something old...Something new.

The prize of my vintage photo collection, this shot from 1955 has something of an eerie vibe to it. I'm convinced this is a double-exposure and not some kind of spirit photograph. It's likely that the photographer failed to advance the film and mistakenly layered one image on top of the other. It's just so strange that the face of that wedding guest is aligned perfectly with the super close-up of the bride's face. Spoooooky.

Something borrowed...Something blue. 

And here's the tell-tale sign that a double-exposure has occurred due to mechanical defect or photographer's error: The same the same shot...twice. Unless of course, there happens to be a set of twins...both of which are the same of which appears to be....deceased. Notice how the bridal party seems transparent behind the staircase banister? Again, spoooooky.
