Very cool!

I'm an amateur photographer, but I've never played around with multiple exposure like that! Very cool!

how'd you do it? traditional film? digital? Photoshop?

How'd the Ox handle the traffic? For such a large and wonderful beast, I'm curious to understand how he reacted to traffic? Fear? Skittishness? Calmness?

Happy 4th of July!, BTW!

Hi Robert --- I'll try this again. I replied but it hasn't shown up yet. So maybe you'll get two replies.

I used my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS10 mounted on the oxcart and put it on video mode. I then did screen captures using Picasa (free download). I combined the photos on Picasa's collage feature using the double exposure tool, then tweaked the settings for best effect.

Scout's calm with traffic. If there is something unusual -- like the tractor -- he'll stop to look, as it goes by.

Thanks for sharing the know-how! I'll have to give that one a try.

Somedays, I miss the old film cameras and the ability to do multi-exposure that way.

But you got a great effect using Picasa!

Thanks for the tip!
