A Word A Week Challenge: Mistake

My camera jammed and resulted in this double exposure of a cat at Finn Slough and red tulips at Queen Elizabeth Gardens.

I also ended up with this double exposure of a different cat at the Slough combined with what I think might be hydrangea bushes, or possibly sideways hyacinths, considering it was springtime.

I manually rewound it again and this time it worked, sort of, but the counter was off and I had no idea where I was on the roll of film, or whether it was secretly jamming and giving me double/triple/quadruple exposures. Most of the photos did turn out but I ended up leaving the camera with my friends in Japan after I found a Ricoh for $52, that ultimately became my favourite camera until it too died.
