    Now we have seen Bill’s marvellous replication of pedestrian’s foot, does anyone feel they could try and replicate the following by Andre Kertész -

    I believe it’s done by taking two pictures of the same thing, cutting both negs in half, flipping one half and joining them up for a symmetrical composition. Of course doing it with a snow covered ground helps dodge out the join. Any takers? I will try myself when snow permits.

    Or just take the same neg and print backwards as I did here. These are just two prints taped together so you can see the paper line, but same idea.
