Triple Exposure

[The photo in question]
This is the triple-exposure I mentioned on a Pentax-users mailing list 'cause I was so pleased I'd gotten away with it. I'm going to try again later, using a flash to illuminate the street a little more, which should allow me to expose the traffic light itself a bit less. The idea was to get the traffic lights with all three colours lit. Why? Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time!

This was taken with a Pentax H3 (a camera older than I am), a Vivitar 135mm f/2.8 lens, and Kodak Royal Gold 400 film, using three exposures of 4 seconds each at f/16.

The artistic composition of the shot isn't great, but hey, it was more a technique experiment than anything else. I wanted to try a trick I'd read about. :-)
