Vermont barn doubled with snow on plastic is one of those shots that just comes together by itself. Jack calls it an,“I don’t know why I’m shooting this but” shot.

In this case, Jack was walking across the parking lot of a New Hampshire diner when he spotted a crumpled piece of discarded plastic covered by a fine dusting of snow. He started to walk by it. But something made him return to his car for his camera, and he took a couple of frames of film with a blue filter to kick up the contrast. A couple of hours later, he shot the Vermont barn, and later that week he sandwiched the two together into a double exposure in the darkroom.
